Pro Tip: Modding The Take Down Lever & Accelerator Cuts

It's no secret I'm a major Glock fan. However, there is a fair amount lacking to that so called Glock perfection. I treat my Glocks like the tools they are. That includes modifying them as necessary to meet my needs. One such mod are the accelerator cuts and shaving down the take down lever. I'll cover the take down lever thing in the video. The accelerator cuts are one of those things that you don't realize you need. If you don't have a pistol light on your blaster you may not recognize that you're allowing your pistol to buck up every time you pull the trigger. The pistol light gives you something to anchor your support hand thumb against, to keep the front end down. The accelerator cuts create a shelf to anchor against to keep the muzzle from flipping up. Without a pistol light on your pistol, or an accelerator cut, you will find yourself constantly fighting recoil. Check it out.
