How Our Glock Upgrades Can Improve Handling, Confidence, and Accuracy
The Colt M1911 was once uncontested as “America’s Handgun.” That laurel might be fading to the popular image of the Glock (regardless of the model.)
Glock has become an icon among handguns. Easy to load, charge, and fire. Glock handguns feature straightforward, intuitive operation that is remarkably popular with gun owners around the country.
Glock also offers compact and subcompact models that offer impressive standard capacities and very lightweight designs. With their polymer frames, Glocks are not only strong and lightweight but also corrosion-resistant – basically corrosion proof.
That said, any good thing can be made better, which is exactly why we offer the following Glock upgrades.
1. Glock Compensator
Our Glock compensator is easy to install and available in five different colors. We also offer compensators compatible with Gen 3, 4, and 5 Glocks, including the Glock 17, 19, 19x, and 20. But that’s not what makes a compensator a great Glock upgrade.
Our precision-engineered compensator mounts to your Glock’s muzzle and redirects ported gases up over the top of the muzzle – pushing the muzzle down during firing.
A compensator like this is one of the most effective ways to cut felt recoil – by as much as 50% without sacrificing any shot power. Compensators like these keep muzzle jump down, keeping your sights on target, reducing shooter fatigue, time to follow up shots, and potentially improving accuracy.
A compensator may be a great Glock upgrade for fighting muzzle flip – but it’s not the only way you can help control handling and wrangle muzzle jump. Check out our recent blog, Five Ways to Fight Muzzle Flip, for more helpful advice.
2. Glock Magwells
Our Glock magwells are made from 6061 aircraft-grade aluminum, and like our compensators, are available in five colors. They also require no modifications and easily attach to the gun via a single screw.
They don’t damage the frame of the handgun, and serve as an effective way to funnel the magazine into the well, reducing fumbling between shots and most importantly, slashing time between reloads.
This makes them highly functional Glock upgrades that are perfect in high-stress environments, especially among those who carry for self-protection or home defense, or for those who compete and are scored on time.
3. Glock Extended Magazine Release
Like magwells and compensators, our Glock extended mag releases are extremely functional Glock upgrades. They add personality to your handgun while improving the shooting experience.
Install an Anarchy Outdoors Glock Extended Mag Release and fumbling with mags will become a thing of the past. Shave time off reloads and drop mags confidently with speed and ease.
Not only will an AO extended mag release for your Glock enable quicker mag drops, you can use one to add some color to your gun and even coordinate with other upgrades to personalize your firearm.
4. Night Sights
Night sights or WMLs are a must for anyone that carries for home defense or concealed carries away from home. You never know when you’ll need to draw – it could be dark, inside or out, and preparation saves lives.
Our Trijicon Bright and Tough Night Sights (for Glock standard frames) are shock resistant and don’t require batteries. Instead, they feature lamps made with Tritium phosphor-filled glass, which glow in the dark. Each lamp also features a white ring to increase visibility in the daytime, too.
They are covered by a 12-year warranty and protected by metal housing and silicone rubber. Long-lasting, durable night sights like these can potentially improve your nighttime accuracy by a factor of up to five times.
5. Red Dot Sights
For instinctive or reflexive shooting, red dot sights reign supreme. They free you from the need to line up iron sights, don’t create parallax distortion (like some other optics) and can enable faster, more accurate follow up shots.
If you prefer red dot sights to iron sights, you’ll love a Trijicon RMR Type 2 Red Dot Sight. They are versatile, easy to adjust, parallax-free, and feature a battery conservation mode for long red dot light.
They’re perfect for other pistols, too, not just for Glocks.
6. Streamlight TLR-1 HL WML
The Streamlight TLR-1 HL WML is the perfect shooting accessory – or Glock upgrade – for self-defense minded shooters that are aware of the dangers of what goes bump in the night.
This WML platform provides 1,000 lumens of light via a C4 LED, featuring a strobe setting. It has an ambidextrous switch, which enables it to be activated and deactivated with ease.
It’s also extremely durable and can withstand hard use and demanding conditions, thanks to its construction from aircraft grade aluminum, chemically-resistant laser housing and Borofloat glass lens.
Best of all, it’s easy to mount and compatible with Picatinny rails and Glock-style rails. If you upgrade your Glock with one of our compensators, you can mount this light right to the rail slot on the bottom of the compensator – the perfect combination.
7. Timney Alpha Glock Triggers
Nothing against stock Glock triggers, but Timney Alpha Triggers (compatible with Gen 3, 4, and 5 Glocks) are easy to install, crisp, reliable, and durable.
They break crisply at three pounds, feature smooth, corrosion-resistant Teflon Nickel (NP3) trigger bars, and sears with straight aluminum triggers and anodized safety bars. They don’t require a gunsmith for installation.
If you’re looking for a smoother, crisper, tougher trigger, with a light, reliable trigger pull weight, you’ve just found it.
