Glock Picture Thread

Recommended Posts

I'd imagine its easier than shooting a C-more though. I've been shooting Hi-capa on C-more before and that requires a different sight alignment completely being so high off the bore axis. The RMR being as low as they are the position won't be as specialized....

It's kind of bizarre... I'm still getting used to the RMR. My splits are identical to regular irons for some reason.....

 

Then again I'm very used to the high bore axis of a c-more on a racegun and even more so to regular irons. I keep catching myself putting the glock on the same height as my 2011 racegun and wondering where the hell the dot is....

Dunno if anyone's posted on this, but has anyone used a stock WE G19 (with no light) with a Safariland 6280 for a real-steel G19 (with no mods)? I know definitively that a WE19 will NOT fit a SERPA for a Glock 19, but will fit a SERPA for a G21.

QUESTION(s):

Magpul PTS made 2 types of Glock 17 speedplates, one for KSC/KWA and one for TM. The TM ones are sold out worldwide (I've spent considerable amount of time looking for the dark earth ones). What is the difference in fitting between the 2 types/mag base plates? Are they really that different?

 

The reason I ask is that I've found copies of these speedplates from another manufacturer, who say that they are made predominantly for the KSC mags, but will also work with standard TM Glock mags.

 

I'm thinking of buying them, but thought I'd ask for people's experiences first.

Should I buy the ones that claim to work for both or should I buy the KSC ones for my TM G17, if they'll fit?

 

Thanks

I can now definitely say the Safariland 6280 for the Glock 17/22 will be an extremely snug fit with a WE19 (WE G19). However, using some painter's tape, five minutes with a hair dryer, and 15 minutes inside a freezer, the WE G19 will fit PERFECTLY. YouTube video on it is here (Tactical Gear Tip - How to Fix A Tight Kydex Holster by Reality Survival).

Iv been thinking about this also. On patrol base's website they have pictures of both the KSC version and the Marui Version. With a bit of hole making and adjusting they should fit a marui mag. Gonna be buying a Pack of KSC versions to mod to fit a Marui Base will let you know how it goes.

It's the way the baseplate sliding dimensions are different - I do not think they are interchangable, nor could you use RS ones on either mag type. I recall the KSC speedplate lips being ridiculously thin, and as a result I broke all 6 I bought within a few months lol.

Thanks for the info. I managed to find some TM ones on Ebay in the US and should have them within a few weeks.

EDIT. ive just noticed the set of sights I want are actually for the Salient G18 slide. Does that mean that they wouldn't fit on the G17? Do these sights fit on ANY stock TM slide?

I've never seen it.  Not to say it can't be done.  G17 sites to G18 might be hackable.  I'm not to sure on the other way though as the G17 sites have a longer base that slots into the slide.

Don't forget ... after putting in so much effort into reshaping the frame, you may want want to do a mag release scallop too. Look forward to seeing the finished work.

 

Might just be because there weren't 9Ball gas buckings on them, but Echo1 Timberwolf mags do not work well with TM+AKA BBH+AS Nozzle.

 

Just sayin'.

Echo1 Timberwolfs are made by WE. I've had issues with compatibility between WE and TM/VFC parts and guns.

I really want tall irons on a TM G17. I think I might just araldite a set of Ameriglo sights on

I had this issue also, so i had a couple of spare sights so i decided to try and make some myself.

there not 100% finished but it works despite how rough they look

The process includes using 2 sets of sights, sanding one set down to be a good fit on top of the other set. then melting the plastic to create a nicer surface and sanding it down. not a great job but it works.IMG_1175_zpsb32524c3.jpg
