Default Glock 23 build

I just picked up a Glock 23 today and would like to know if anyone here has one that they have put aftermarket parts on and how they like them. I would really like to know what kind of aftermarket barrels people are using. Also, anything else you think I should know about the 23.

well i for one dont like the the plastic guide rod so i went with stainless, i dont like the heavy trigger so i went with the 3.5lb. i also dont like the fact my pinkie doesnt rest comfortably on the grip so i went with the pinkie extender. glock is a glock and i wouldnt trust my life with any other but it is not perfect right out of the box

I heard that there are some issues with shooting certain rounds with the stock barrel. Just a few mods I want to make since it will be my carry weapon.

I can say that with a stock 17 that has had thousands of rounds through it in the last 10 years, dirty/clean didn't matter, that's why I was wondering about changing parts on them, although I do agree with replacing the plastic guide rod.

^This. I probably have 20,000 rounds through my 17, can't remember ever having a malfunction. I can see the mag extention if you have large hands, but Glocks are pretty damn good right out of the box. My only other suggestion would be night sights since it will be your carry gun.

I put a glock together for my sister with stuff mostly from lone wolf. She really loves that pistol. I will put one together for me here in the fall. It all depends what you need from your pistol. but like everyone has said it will do just about anything right out of the box.

Honestly, I say shoot it and then see if you want to change anything. If it has the "target trigger" with the ridges, I would change that out, over long periods of shooting it tends to rub your finger raw.

That may or may not be a future issue for you God forbid you should ever need to draw and pull the trigger.
For concealed carry, I would not consider trigger modifications.
For home defense, heck yeah.

100% THIS
Honestly I have no problem with the stock 5.5# trigger. Heck my department installs the 8# trigger in all of our guns and I shoot it just fine.
