Changing Glock factory part
« on: June 05, 2017, 07:43:39 PM »
If I change one of my Glock factory parts and let's say down the road I have to use my gun in self-defense, would the prosecutor or the district attorney use that against me? Do you recommend that I do all the work myself or should I have a gunsmith do the work or should I leave it factory Glock all the time?

Thank you for your time.

Ace,

While making minor modifications to a firearm is not illegal (not including changing the classification of a firearm to anything regulated by the ATF), it is always possible that a prosecutor could use that to paint a defendant in a negative light to a jury.

Another potential issue with making modifications to a firearm is civil liability arising from a malfunction or accidental discharge of the firearm. This is one reason why having a gunsmith make any modifications is advisable. Doing this will provide a defense to accusations of negligence in constructing the modification.
