  1. The GlockStore has this NOTICE: “The MCK Stabilizer is not legal for sale in California. Please consult all applicable laws in your state before purchasing.”

    Survivalblog has information about relocating within the USA. = “The American Redoubt — Move to the Mountain States.”

    The MCK Stabilizer retails at a very affordable price.

  2. A shell for a pistol seems like a plausible alternative in certain situations. I still think having a pistol caliber carbine is a better compromise (if I need more than just a pistol in a gunfight, I’d rather have my MBR or at least a shotgun). My Keltec sub 2000 uses the same mags my Glock 22 does. It stows well in a briefcase, and can be equipped with sights when deployed that make it a 100 yard shooter fairly well. I don’t like that it folds over the top of itself, requiring that I remove and reinstall the “other than factory” sights if I want to use it at extended range, but it is a compromise I have learned to live with. I wouldn’t turn my nose up at any advantage, so the MCK seems to be worth the investment if you have the need. If I am going to carry more than just my pistol and I need something easy to stow, the Keltec is my go-to. I bought mine NIB for $300 about a decade ago, and it is still performing as expected.

  3. I always love Pat’s reviews. He has plenty of experience to form solid opinions. I would just say that the item does not make the Glock more accurate, but rather helps the user exploit the inherent accuracy in the pistol more fully.
    Sometimes, one must use a handgun for home defense rather than something better. Just remember that no matter what you attach to your pistol, it’s still just a pistol, and they are not particularly decisive in ending confrontations (compared to say, a shotgun or centerfire rifle). There are many officer-involved shootings to document dismal failures associated with pistol and SMG rounds.
    For my own money, anything with nearly the bulk of a rifle for serious purposes will BE a rifle (or shotgun).
    As a recreational toy, they look like a lot of fun!

  4. The old version had a trigger cover. This newer version doesn’t have a trigger cover, and Glocks don’t have a safety. Therefore, carrying with a round in the chamber is very dangerous, and putting it down or picking it up could very easily result in a negligent discharge. I could have had one at 50% of the sales price, but passed for safety reasons.

  5. I’ve had one of the older versions for quite some time, and tested it extensively with seveal PD’s I train. It is a niche tool, but serves very well in a couple of areas. I highly suggest them for school resource officers, plain clothes officers, or admin police officers who don’t have long guns in reach. Also viable for a get home bag when your edc pistol fits the chassis. Without a gun installed, it’s just a hunk of plastic that can be left unlocked in a desk drawer, vehicle, etc. During a critical incident, your edc can be locked in the chassis in under 5 seconds. And yes … zero is repeatable with a red dot. I’ve found this tool increases the effective range of a glock to around 100 yards, and allows average police officers (not high end shooters) to make consistent head shots to 30+ yards. Even in use with simmunition guns, effectiveness was greatly increased over the pistol alone. All of this at minimal weight. This is a cost effective, light weight chassis that brings out the most of the pistol you already have, but is not intended to replace a rifle. With a white light on the side rail and a single point sling on the chassis, it really is a unique tool that is very effective.

  6. Pat,
    Any idea if the MCK will work with a SIG P226/MK-25 or a P220? I know Sig has the same type of product (or did) called the ACP/Adaptive Carbine Platform, but wondered if one was available from MCK.

  7. Ehhhhkkkkk, there’s so much wrong with this article I don’t know where to start. So I guess I’ll just start from the top. The argument that you will be raked over the coals and prosecuted for using a custom gun or reloads is old mythical bs. Any halfway decent defense attorney can squelch that argument in a heartbeat. Of course if someone was dumb enough to have literally a hair trigger or turn their gun into a full auto, that’s a different story. But customizing your weapon to improve the trigger and make the gun more accurate and reliable by changing out some parts is not something to worry about if you should shoot someone in a justified shooting.
    The same can be said of reloads. I personally reload and I will carry my reloads without hesitation because I know how accurate and reliable they are. “No your honor, the perp didn’t die because my reloads were more deadly than factory ammo, it might have more to do with the 5 round burst he got to the face, in which if I was shooting a .22 the outcome would be the same”.
    Night sights. Night sights do NOT help to identify your target, in any way. The author states he likes them because he doesn’t want to shoot at a person that isn’t the intended target. If that’s the case get a weapon mounted light, not night sights. Again, they do not help to identify the target in any way.
    Fiber optic sights…are useless in low light/no light. Not to mention, somewhat delicate. They’re great for competition shooting because in daylight the fiber tube really lights up. However, I’ve shot in competitions where the tube broke and fell out. I don’t use them on any fighting pistol.
    There is no need to settle for a “mushy” trigger. Doing a custom trigger job on a Glock consists of not necessarily making the trigger lighter, but making it cleaner. Only a fool would carry a defensive piece with a literal hair trigger. A simple trigger pull gauge would shut up any over zealous prosecutor. A 4 pound pull is a 4pound pull. If the take up is smooth, up to a pronounced wall, then a clean crisp break, it might feel lighter, but the scale doesn’t lie.
    The roni kits, in my not so humble opinion, are gimmicky. Substandard fighting gear. However, the author is worried about putting in an aftermarket trigger but wants to run a stocked/braced pistol with 33 round mags. A weapon that the damn atf can’t make up their minds on whether or not it’s legal to shoulder this week. Not to mention vertical fore grips are illegal on pistols without a stamp and I could see a prosecutor going after you for breaking nfa laws.
    Me personally, I don’t see the need for a weapon like this. I would rather a 7-8” barrel AR 9 that takes Glock mags. This contraption might help you shoot a little more accurate because you can get 4 points of contact on it as opposed to the 2 you have on a pistol. I don’t think the juice is worth the squeeze because while you might get a negligible increase in accuracy, you not gaining anything on velocity while handling a larger package than just the pistol. An AR 9 with a 7-8” barrel will significantly bump up your velocity AND accuracy. I prefer 7-8” barrels on the AR9 because if I’m gonna carry or use anything bigger like 10.5” and longer, I’m gonna have a rifle caliber. And anything smaller, I’ll just carry the pistol.
    For me, these things just make no sense. YMMV.
