Nice, I'm sure it feels way better.

Could you give details on the process you used? Do you really like it better than the stock feel?

Looks damn good around the grip there, although I personally wouldn't have made that notch in the underside of the trigger guard, or stipled the side of the frame above it. To each his own though, if it fits you better that way, good deal.

when I saw who posted this I was hoping for something a little more artistic

I'm with VVV on this one.

I love the grip area and am pretty cold on the trigger guard area.

I love seeing these pics people post as it gives me ideas of what various stippling jobs will look like.

I really like this one the best and this is what I want my 23 to look like ultimately.

That looks almost factory original

Looks pretty good. It seems a bit rough. Is it as rough as it looks in the pics?

This one looks awesome. I see lines as opposed to dimples, how is that done?

Link Posted: 6/15/2009 9:59:03 AM EST
Looks good.

Can I ask what the purpose of the second notch in the trigger guard is for?

Seems like it would be for the index finger on the support hand.
A pretty interesting idea, strange that I've never seen it on a production pistol.

I'm not sure how that is done, but I see the lines vs. dimples from time to time on Glock forums and I really like the line way of doing it.

I'll have to do some research to figure out how these guys do it like that because I want mine like that badly.

I had not thought of that, it seems to make sense.

I think it is pretty obvious what that is.

I think we should all cut the OP a break. His Glock looks better than mine would have come out.

You can't figure that out? It's a "pull tab", it's an aftermarket baseplate like a Ranger Tab for AR mags. Not sure if it's made by Magpul or Arredondo, someone like that.

It is failry obvious what that "goofy shit" is.

Overall the OP did a great job, and now HIS pistol conforms better to HIS hand, which is very important.

Sig_Fan is right.

How does it feel IWB? Does it rub your side raw?
Link Posted: 6/16/2009 3:55:40 AM EST
Stippling is the only way to go. Does not peel off, and allows you to flatten the hump, for that Perfect Glock feel. And just for information, im doing this type of reduction and stippling for anyone located in the Houston area.

Very, very agressive!

I remember seeing you post this a while back. You said it doesn't feel as abrasive as it looks. The end-user was happy, that's what matters most.

Is there a tutorial for grip reduction?

Search the Brownell's website. They have a complete tutorial, including adding a beavertail, there.

I open carry as of now (waiting for CCW) but when the CCW goes through, I'm buying a MTac Minotaur, which has a large leather paddle to prevent just that.


The paddle on the MTac only covers the slide- not the grip.... just a heads up


looks damn good though, perhaps when I finally get a smaller Glock to match my 35 I'll do something similar.

"Pull plate" still looks goofy.
