7 Surefire Ways to Customize Your Glock

7 Surefire Ways to Customize Your Glock

Glock is one of the most notable handgun brands on the market. It’s user-friendly, reliable, affordable, and available in multiple calibers and sizes. That makes this notable handgun one of the most widely owned as well.

Glocks have a distinct look shared across all models. Making your Glock standout will not only set your firearm apart from everyone else’s at the range but will also help you identify and manage your own inventory of Glocks if you own several models.

We’ve compiled a list of the best ways to make your Glock stand out.

Aftermarket Sights

The Glock is built to be easy to handle and reliable. This leaves most of the parts with a no-frills feel and style. While the factory sights are great, there is some room for improvement both in performance and in looks. Upgraded sights can be subtle customization and with any number of available options on the market, you’re sure to find something that fits your style.

One of the most common additions to a Glock is the addition of Night Sights. these allow for better experiences in low light and night target shooting.

Grips – Enhancements

One of the many things that make Glocks great is that they are so universally used that many aftermarket products and solutions exist. You can upgrade the look and feel of your Glock grip by ordering different types of grip enhancements. A number of different options exist, ranging from grip covers to custom-cut adhesives, and of course, you can find these in different colors and patterns.

Grips – Glock Stippling

Stippling is a process that involves modifying the grip through heat application in which patterns and designs are melted into the polymer material of the Glock grip. Stippling can be applied in popular patterns or custom to your own design. R&B Arms provides custom stippling for firearms and can help with the customization of your Glock.

Custom Blackpates

One of the most popular and easiest ways to customize your Glock is with a custom Glock backplate. Glock backplates, also known as slide plates, are interchangeable and can be swapped out as you see fit. We create a number of popular designs and create custom backplates to order. (In many cases we can provide these in bulk orders as well.)

Similar to Glock backplates, Glock magazine base plates are easy to swap out and can be found in a variety of styles as well as be custom ordered.
