Picked up a 19 and the finger grooves have got to go. Has anyone filed theirs down with a dremel? There's a few guys on the net that say a gunsmith can do this, but I'm wondering why I can't just do it myself.

Just find a gen 2 or send it to Robar.

I went after mine with wood rasp. I think I need to follow up with some heavy grit sandpaper and a shoe shine technique to smooth it out even more.

I hit mine with a Dremel sanding drum the instant I took it out of the box. Took about 10 minutes & looks professionally done.

Did you grind down just the 3 lipped grooves? How's the finish look and feel afterward?

You can take them off with a file or a dremel. Just go slow so you don't take too much off. Getting the remaining surface to look like the rest of the pistol is the challenge, if you care about that.

I used a Dremel on a G30 I owned. Go slow. I used the 120 grit drum but ended up recessing the area where the finger grooves were to allow 3M tape to be placed on the front strap.

Not that much better but here are a few before final finishing.

Cool!
Thanks!

I really like the inset tape idea (like my MIAD)
To me, it's a bit more subtle than stipling...

Man, curare don't post that without details. I would really like to know the process that you used.

I think I recall reading that you did this yourself?

Glock frames seem to fit me fine as they are, so I'm not a huge fan of grip reductions. However, in my opinion, your's is the nicest I think I've ever seen (professional or otherwise).

Very nice work Curare!

Curare...
Please tell use how you did it.....
Don't leave us hanging........
It does look like an engraving pencil with a blunt tip set to vibe at a slow speed...
Is that it???
Please tell us...Even though were not worthy....

I used a bench grinder to grind off finger grooves on a G27 just on a whim one day. The guys there thought I was crazy, but it looks ok. Most importantly it feels good.

I've been meaning to ask you about your work. The frame pictured above, it looks like grip angle has not changed but it does look the the hump has been removed off of the rear grip strap. That's exactly what I would like to do to mine. Do you fill in the rear cavity to do that or is there enough extra plastic there to remove the hump without any filler?

Thanks
