    Glock G36 w/ grip reduction

    On 9/8 I sent my G36 to Lane Owens at Cold Bore Customs http://coldborecustom.com for his grip reduction/ finger groove removal/ Option 2 (360 degree) "Carry" stippling. It was back in my hands 8 days and $150 later. It looks like it came from the factory. The stippling is uniform and flawless. It now fits my hand better than any handgun I have ever owned and points naturally without that irritating hump on the back of the grip. I also just received a Gladiator OWB and Infidel IWB from Comp-Tac and a "Zack" holster from One Source Tactical. No verdict yet on the Zack but it looks promising for true "minimalist" carry.

    The '36' looks great, they did very nice work!
    Not sure I would use the 'Zack'.OMO

    The work Lane did is every bit as good as Bowie, Robar and C&S. And he was FAST. Well see on the Zack. I have some hesitancy myself.

    Just curious, if the G36 didn't fit your hand and the hump was irritating, why did you buy it in the first place/

    I also am not a fan of the Glock hump. For me at least the one on the G36 doesn't bother me. My guess is because of its overall thinness. The fatter grip of the double stacks seems to amplify the humpiness.

    I was hoping someone would ask this question. I love the basic Glock mechanics- reliability, accuracy etc. I have bought after market grips for every metal framed pistol or revolver I have ever owned, sometimes spending more than this reduction cost. So now, for a bit less than $600 total, I have an utterly reliable pistol that feels like it is custom fit to my hand and has ready parts availabilty if needed. I can't think of a better bargain.

    Glocks happen to fit my hand very well right out of the box. Actually, the 30 with its wide grip fits my monkey fingers the best. But not everyone has the same hands, so I'm glad that you found something that works for you. I wouldn't use the Zack either. The other two holsters look like they will work.

    Congratulations!

    It is better to have your gun and not need it, than to need it and not have it!

    Sorry I didn't do good closeups before the reduction, but here are the best before and after I could come up with.

    Pretty significant! I'd love to get this done to my 27, man hands are just a wee bit small for it, but like you, I also love the Glocks accuracy, durability, and mechanics right out of the box!
