Glock 48

Recommended Posts

Picked up one about a month ago and like it.

Had Truglo H3 sights put on it.

It had a 7 to 7.5 pound trigger and the rough Glock trigger face.

Well this is the first Glock I have decided to mod.

I used fine wet/dry paper to smooth the trigger face and make the trigger safety lever even with the trigger when the trigger is pulled.

I polished the metal internals with 500/1000/2000 grit polish compound and polishing wheell .

The polishing dropped the trigger pull down about a pound due to removing some very rough edges. You will get rough edges on stamped metal.

I then replaced the striker spring with a Ghost INC. 4.5 pound spring and the safety plunger spring with a Ghost INC. reduced power spring. This reduce the pull down to 4.5 pounds. This is the best and cheapest way to reduce the trigger pull.

All this cost me $10.23 for the Ghost springs and has given me a good trigger and is much easier for me to shoot accurately.

I have shot the pistol after each mod to see what improved and what needs more improvement. I have gotten to the point where I am very happy with this pistol for carry.

I now have about 1,450 rounds thru it.

All I've done to mine is change the sights.  I love Glock plastic sights...because they are so easy to remove lol.  I'll polish the internals sooner or later, but I doubt I'll mess with springs on a carry gun.  

I was irritated that Comp-Tac wouldn't make a CTAC for the 48 and I told them more than once.  One day, I realized that they make a 43 CTAC.  I bought one and put the Dremel to work.  Now I have the best carry gun I've ever bought with the best IWB holster made 😀

Just a FYI. Ghost inc. has dropped the prices on the reduced firing pin springs and reduced power safety plunger springs so with shipping they are under $9.00.

      Hi all. Recently started becoming interested in the reflex red dots and bought the Walther Q5 Match and mounted a Vortex Venom on it. I took it out to the range on two occasions now along with a few other 9mm of mine. 
      First, about the pistol:
      - Great striker fired pistol. I own dozens of guns and only two are polymer, this and my Springfield XDS 3.3. I have shot many, however. Best striker trigger out of the box that I have fired. Granted it’s not my Kimber Aegis Elite but that’s not expected. 
      - Nice balance in my hand. Comfortable grip. 
      - Holy muzzle flip. Not an issue for slow shooting but follow up shots take some work. 
      - Flawless operation out of the box. Can’t say that about a lot of new guns I’ve purchased in the last year sadly. (Looking at you Ruger and S&W)
      The sight mounted easily with the number one plate included with the Walther. It came with three different mounting plates. 
      I had been practicing dry fire and presentation with the sight and find the dot very easy to find. No issues with “searching”. While this is my first sight of this nature, I do have a rail mounted Browning Red Dot on two Buckmarks.
      I used the sight in “auto” mode and found the brightness very good for the range I visit. It was easy to zero in. 
      Shooting with the dot:
      I shot this gun today along with my Beretta M9A3. At close range I found my Beretta much easier to group nicely and tighter. Close range is 5-7 yards. 
      Beyond that, out to 25 yards, is where I saw the huge benefits on the dot. It improved my accuracy tremendously compared to the open sights of the Beretta (a gun I have tens of thousands of rounds experience with). My goal is to continue practicing speed and accuracy with the optic mounted pistol at the closer ranges. My confidence at longer ranges has gone through the roof with it!

      Is there any dealers in the tri-cities area that stock Glock 48 night sights?

      I found a really good deal on a DW Guardian in .38 super locally. I have been searching for a Guardian in 9mm for awhile and haven’t been able to find one. I Have never shot .38 super. Would it be a good carry round? I’m assuming it’s way more expensive than 9mm. Wonder if you could swap barrels and bushing to 9mm if you wanted
