For readers looking to enhance the handling and “shootability” of their favorite Glock, the January/February issue of American Handgunner identifies a worthy option.
In “Combat Modpaks For Glocks,” Contributing Editor John Connor teams up with Toner Machining Technologies to create the Connor Combat Modpak — turning standard Glocks into agile, fine-fitting sidearms perfect for everyday carry and target shooting.
“Our mission was to produce sure handling, operator-friendly tactical pistols; not ‘safe queens,’ collector guns or weekend-recreation pistols — but sidearms rigged for duty use as the owner’s primary Roscoe,” Connor claims. “Looks don’t count in a gunfight, but if a fighting gun also pleases the eye, that ain’t bad, right?”

In “Boberg XR9-S,” Contributing Editor J.B. Wood explains how this adept handgun is rewriting semi-auto design. This clever sub-compact handgun features a barrel with an overall length of 3.35″ — achieved by extending the barrel back over the magazine well.
“The Bobgerg system is entirely internal, is strongly made and works perfectly. The double-action-only trigger pull is flawless, and it’s continuous, not a reset-type,” Wood observes.

The January/February 2014 issue of American Handgunner also features a look at some of the outlandish guns in Cody’s Dug Up Guns Museum, the “Almost” story of the Double Deuce from Steel City Arms, life lessons taught by a replica Colt Dragoon .44 cap-and-ball revolver and a close look at carry options.
