Voiding Glock Warranty

I was just wondering what upgrades can you make to a Glock without voiding the warranty? Like extended slide stop lever, extended slide lock lever, ect.

As far as I know if you switch all that out you can still send it back to GLOCK, but it'll come back with stock parts in it.

My first and last Glock was so screwed up with BTF and Glock customer no-service so uninterested in admitting two years of problems that I had no interest in maintaining the warranty with more parts that cause the problem. Added new extractor, springs, steel guide rod, extended slide release, extended slide stop, and extended mag release. Cost a lot more than I'd planned to but at least I can work the gun now and not be assaulted by my own hot brass. Make the gun work right - or better. Warranty, with Glock's current level of imperfection, just ain't an issue. Lots of friendly, talented folks are making better parts to fix the problems that Glock isn't even interested in addressing - let alone fixing. I'll take the talented fixes and improvements over the warranty any time. Your mileage may vary if you've never ever had a problem with your Glocks. Me...mine came out of the box with a bad attitude. Much gratitude to Glockmeister, Gun Goddess, and Apex Tactical for fixing the problems and giving me a problem free, easy to use gun that I originally paid for but didn't show up.

Generally speaking, you can add stuff to your Glock without 'voiding the warranty'. If you install aftermarket parts and screw up the gun doing so, they will 'repair' it, but aftermarket parts will be removed and returned to you, they are only likely to do so one time though.

If you alter (screw up) parts, and they have to fix/replace them, they are likely to not do so 'under warranty'.....you'll have to pay for said repair/replacements.

Any modifications that are irreversible will make that part non-warrant-able. Irreversible mods to the frame generally void the warranty - but they have been known to overlook some mods if there is no impact on the functional issue you are having.

So for example, if you port your Glock factory barrel, that barrel is no longer under warranty, and if you are having barrel related issues, they would sell you a new barrel.

Everything else others have said prior is also accurate.

cutting anything comes to mind. They seem to frown on cut frames, slides, barrels, trigger group parts etc being cut on.

If you are having an issue put the factory parts back in and test. Then if the issue still exists you can send it back to glock without worrying abobt the warranty issue or losing your parts.
