    If I bought a Glock (not going to happen) it would be a Wilsonized one.

    Meh. Everything they are doing for action work, sights, extended slide release and mag release etc. can be done yourself at a fraction of the cost. For grip enhancement you can get some Talon grips for 12 bucks. As far as slide coloring/treatment and fancy stippling goes why bother; a Glock is a tool that can take a lot of abuse and not affect it's appearance much. That's the "beauty" of a Glock it is an inexpensive self defense tool that I can sweat all over, drag it through the mud, take it on the boat and not worry about scratching it or having the finish corrode. Why bastardize it and turn it into a $1000 plus gun? Stippling job and modifying the trigger guard can also be done at home. As far as accuracy is concerned Glock's are plenty accurate for a close quarter defense gun and more. Do this work yourself, get to know your weapon (how it works and how to fix it if needed) and spend the money saved on something else.

    I think they are way to proud of them thats for sure pricing is a little crazy IMO. They are selling a gun with a replaced trigger connector and vickers sights for over 900. Thats a total of about $120 worth of parts and 30 mins of your time for an upcharge of close to $400 doesnt make any sense IMO..

    I don't know how to say this without sounding overly critical. If you like something, great. But this is such a waste of money. If you take anything Hackathon or Vickers says as anything other than a commercial for WC, you're getting snowed.

    I've tried several different aftermarket barrels for multiple Glocks. The WC has always been the worst in my experience. I've tried factory ammo and reloaded ammo and the Glock OEM barrel has always been the best.

    Everything else offered in this commercial is personal preference but know you're gonna pay a premium for anything WC (or any other custom shop).

    Buy an A-zone grip decal. They stay put better than Talon grips. Buy whichever sights you like. Buy whichever connector you like. That'll save you $400!

    Now, saying all that, we've all spent money on nice stuff so,... If it's worth it to you, that's all that matters.

    I like my Glocks. Have 2. One is a range gun, the other I carry. They fit me, and I'm good with them. Plus with all the after market parts, mostly drop in unless there is some minor tweaking that needs to be done. Like my Brother got a ZEV slide for his G34, needed fitting.

    So this post is really redundant, everything was been said more wisely than me.

    The money you save, buy ammo or take a class.

    I think I've seen one, maybe two, custom Glocks that I really liked. They just aren't for me. To answer your question, I don't think I've seen a worked over 43, but I'd call and ask to be sure.

    A Zev streetfight G43 is around $1,500 so I'd rather have something WC worked on for the same money
