Glock Just bought a Glock 36

Sold the RIA Compact 1911 today and picked up a Glock 36 from Upstate Armory Group. Thanks again BOB!

It feels great! MUCH lighter than the all steel 1911. Going to shoot it this Sunday.

My uncle just picked up a Kimber Pro CDP II today as well. It's freakin SAWEET.
 
Hell yea!

Oh, and my unlce bought a Pro CDP II from Deweys, not a Pro Carry II. I updated the original post to reflect that.

GTrav also has a Glock 36.
I almost bought it out from under him.
I like the 36 as a carry option, thin and powerfull

Congratulations!

I will have the 36 at Shootzenfest. I have not been able to shoot it as much as I would like. Bought it for big gun carry. Pops put me on it and I am now looking for a 19 or 26.

I used a piece of a bicycle inner tube to fabricate a grip sleeve for my 36.
Works pretty well.

Now that's my kind of slip-on grips. I like the rubber slip on grips, but I really liked the "skateboard" tape type stuff that you can stick on the grip, I felt them at one of the gun shows.

My dad, uncle, and I went to Philson's Crossroads range today. Dad brought his Glock 22. My uncle brought his new Kimber Pro CDP II (thing was more of a pain to field strip and assemble than my RIA was, more difficult from other Kimbers I have field stripped. There is a nice little scratch on the frame from trying to get the slide release back in, DOH!) and his HK P30 9mm (very sweet and very easy to shoot accurately). I brought my new Glock 36, Caitlin's Glock 27, and our Ruger Mark II.

We had the whole range to ourselves for hours. It was a blast, as usual! We were blasting tiny targets all the way to the last burn with ease. There are burns for 15, 25, and 100 yards. We were in the freaking zone. I don't think I shot that well my entire life. I am verry impressed with my new Glock, its a keeper! Wish my RIA wasn't so heavy, or I would have kept it too, lol.

I would like some lighter triggers for our Glocks. Not sure which brand to go with, though. Research time, unless any of you have any trigger suggestions...

To bad you are not going to be able to make it to ShootzenFest you could try the trigger on my home grown race gun.

I would do a 25 cent trigger job and a 3.5 Lone Wolf connector to start.

Mothers Mag and Aluminum polish works really well, Flitz or even rubbing compound will work.
This is what I do to ALL my Glocks.
It is the most bang for the buck.
Very few people do not like the 3.5 connector.

If you want more then you might want to use a 6 pound Wolf trigger spring and see how you like that.

On a a defensive gun I would hesitate to do much more.

I prefer a smooth trigger so I change them out first thing.
On my Glock 36 I reduced the trigger grooves to nearly nothing.
I always cut down the trigger drop safety so it is almost to completely flush with the trigger face when I put my finger on it.

I keep reading about people using a NY trigger spring with a 3.5 connector and saying how great it is.
Well let me tell you it sucks.
I tried it and have no use for it.
Dirk Pitt also tried it and did not like it.

Completely changes the way the trigger feels and not in a good way in my opinion ether. The NY1 trigger changes it so that there's more resistance in the take up of the trigger as well as a heavier trigger pull. The 3.5 connector lightens the NY1 a little, I even removed the NY1 spring and it still sucked.

Personally I run my Glock with the stock disconnecter because I found the 3.5 too light, but I'd give it a try if I were you it's a $2 part or somewhere in that neighborhood.

I'm a big fan of the Vickers tactical mag release on Glocks. The stock one is too short for my tastes and the Glock/Lone Wolf releases are too long and the edges are too sharp so I found that when the gun cycled the edges of the mag release were actually digging uncomfortably into my off hand. The Vickers release seems to have just the right balance plus nice rounded edges. They also make a slide release which isn't as necessary IMO, I have it I like it as it has a different contour that I prefer but the Glock/Lone Wolf extended slide releases are good too. Just watch where you put that off hand thumb with them, I tended to ride the slide release with the Lone Wolf extended one.
 
Yup, just got it and installed it yesterday. It's awesome! The grip is really comfortable and blends in pretty nice to the Glock grip.

I think the grip is now a tad longer than a Glock 23 grip, which is exactly whatI was looking for. It's not like a grip extension just to have your pinky to rest on, its a full grip extension, kind of like getting a grip sleeve and a Glock 23 mag and putting it on a Glock 27.

The great thing is, the gun still conceals really well with the extension.

Nice pictures!
It's true a picture is worth a thousand words.

I put a +1 on a 36 magazine tonight.
It is kind of neat the way the snap in extension goes in the opening where most people put a grip plug.
I need to handle it a bit more and take it shooting.

I don't much care for grip sleeves.
I picked up a couple today and tried one on an 30 using a 21 magazine and on a 27 using a 22 magazine.
The sleeve on my XD sub-compact is much nicer.
Damn that was hard for me to say since I am a Glock guy.
I may change my mind after a bit of experimentation.

Yea, I like to get pics of lots of different angles of products. The manufacture never gets enough angles, and people that do product reviews don't get good enough quality of videos done.

As for the grip sleeves, i want to get Caitlin one for her 27 so she can use 23 Mags and have more to hang on to. Your right that the XD ones are alot better looking, feeling, and fitting. I'm not sure if there or Glock brand sleeves, but all the aftermarket sleeves look like crap when compared to the XD ones. I still want to get one for the 27 though, a 23 mag and 23 size grip is still a plus.

As for the test firing part, ShootzenFest is just around the corner. Caitlin and I are really disappointed we wont be attending. Is it bad when a husband a wife get depressed just because they can't go to the shooting range? :shock:

I have never seen a Glock brand sleeve.
I would not get more than one with out trying it.
I have read where some people complain about them pinching their fingers in the spaces.
One guy claims they need to be glued and locked with the set screw.

On the 27 I generally use the +2 extensions from Glock.
I have read mixed results with the aftermarket ones.
Also I have +0 finger hooks on a couple of 23 mags that work pretty well.

Pops had problems with a Glock magazine with an aftermarket extension on it.
If I remember correctly he replaced the spring and that did not fix his problem.
When he put a standard base on the magazine his problem went away.
He can tell the particulars better than I.

After you get some trigger time with the extension you should write a detailed review of it to go with the pictures and we can put it up in the yet to be created section for tech and review articles.

True, longer springs are a must when going up in round count.
For some reason I too couldn't keep some after market brand +1 or +2 grip extentions to stay put. When I became a Glock Armorer I ordered the Glock additions and have never had a problem since.
