It looks great. How does it feel?

Pretty cool, you do have the stones... or at least faith in sandpaper.

Any tips on technique? How hot, what tip, etc?

Do tell...

I don't care for it, but it isn't my gun. Way to be daring.

I like the feel, not as abrasive as grip tape, but sticky. I just used the standard pointed tip, 30 watt iron, just be sure to keep the tip clean. Make sure to work in a well ventilated area, the fumes give you one hell of a headache.

Pretty good work man. It has a chia kind of feel, but I actually like it. Hell a Glock chia pet, I bet they would do pretty well.

You gave your glock a goatee! Niice. I actualy like it. Chewbaca's glock.

Nice uniform job. I wouldn't have the nerve without practicing on some plastic first.

Macjockey that looks awesome! Who did the machine work and refinishing on the slide?

Is that a belt clip on the glock

I was told that is a NY bobby-pin.

What type of finish did you use? I am interested.

Final finish is Gun-Kote.First the slide is blasted with aluminum oxide.A black phosphate finish is applied then the Gun-Kote is applied and baked on.

I like it, myself. I'd like to get rid of the finger grooves on my 21. Any suggestions for a do-it-yourself project?
Link Posted: 1/25/2006 2:39:51 PM EST
I took the grooves down with a file, it is a little too easy to get carried away with power tools. I practiced on a mag for 10 minutes and hit the pistol. Slow and steady, don't rush.

Hour and a half maybe two hours.

Braver man than me too! Looks great though! Good work.

Looks a ton better than my 22 I did with a dremal tool. Mine isn't bad, I will get the wife to take some pitcures of it so I can post them in here. My 22 is an old Glock though, but still my duty weapon. I have a 27 I just bought in Nov. I filed the finger groves off of it the other day at the PD on a whim. The other officers like ot of died that I did it??

Heck it isn't pretty, it is a Glock. It feels 100% better without those finger groves though. Used a bench grinder and emery cloth to smooth/touch it up.

We all freak out about doing this stuff, but I won't sell my Glocks, they will always be mine, if you plan on keeping yours modify the son beech. BradleyW hats off to ya.
