4 Handgun Upgrades for Experienced Shooters
Finding handgun upgrades for experienced shooters can be tricky. When you’ve got some experience down, and you want to try new accessories that can help more nuanced details, where do you start? There’s plenty of options for need based upgrades that will make a big difference. Let’s take a look at some of the most popular handgun accessories at Milspec, that are helping people shoot better!
One of the most common issues that shooters encounter as their proficiency grows, is grip changes. As you become more advanced, you may find that the standard slide release doesn’t work as well. The standard slide release has innate limitations that can hinder performance. Though this doesn’t apply to everyone, if you do find that grip changes are uncomfortable with the standard slide release, you might want to consider an extended one. That’s where Kagwerks steps in.
Their extended and raised slide release offers a unique advantage to trained shooters with a proper higher-position grip. This slide release makes it more comfortable using a higher grip, and thus helps reduce slide override. As you become more experienced, you’ll notice the performance difference with this grip, big time. This is an excellent upgrade for the more advanced shooters who want a more comfortable grip.
Killer Innovation’s Velocity Glock Compensator is truly an innovator in handgun accessories. To start off, This compensator significantly reduces recoil and muzzle climb. Not only that, it attaches in an innovative new way that is completely different from any other compensator on the market. This is super important as you leave the beginner phase, as you want to decrease recoil as much as possible. It also features some key advantages over the traditional methods. First: You can install and remove it without using tools when using their velocity Mod 2 barrel. If you’re using it with other brand barrels, tools will be required to add or remove the comp, but accuracy will be maintained. Second: The compensator pushes all the way back to the thread shoulder when installed. Overall, like all good handgun accessories, this will help make things much easier.
This provides a superior bore alignment to other comps that are timed short of the shoulder, then set screwed or clamped to the threads. This bore alignment accuracy ensures the bullet is passing directly down the center of the comp with equal air gap around the bullet. This equal air gap eliminates the air pushing to one side and wobbling your bullet. Accuracy down range is the ultimate goal! Many professional shooters who’ve used this compensator during testing said this was the flattest shooting comp they’ve ever shot. If you want a compensator that is extremely accurate and installs easier than any other comp on the market, look no further, we’ve got you covered!
The last thing anyone needs on their Glock setup is extra, useless weight. As an experienced shooter, having minimal weight is and a reliable magwell is extremely important. The Reptilia Black Hole Polymer Magwell for Glock pistols’ reinforced polymer provides ultra high strength durability. The Black Hole’s enlarged magazine well opening helps facilitate more efficient reloads without adding unnecessary bulk to your carry or duty sidearm.
This is crucial when you need it most! It’s a versatile magwell, as it’s compatible with 9mm & .40-caliber Glock pistols. Additionally, it’s super easy to use and install, as the Black Hole utilizes a unique rear spacer to ensure seamless fit and compatibility with both Gen 3 & Gen 4 frames. All in all, this is an awesome magwell option for anyone looking to improve their Glock 19 or Glock 23 builds.
We recommend the Esstac KYWI to anyone who’s looking for a massive upgrade in their pouches. Its straight forward, user friendly and highly intuitive design makes the single KYWI mag pouch unbeatable.
With its hybrid kydex and nylon design, you get all the rigidity you would expect from a kydex pouch and the lack of noise you want from a nylon pouch. These pouches feature a kydex wedge insert (KYWI) that provide the needed retention to secure your magazines without the need for bungee cord for rapid mag changes.
