    G22 Grip reduction

    I have mentioned this guy before, Lane Owens, of Cold Bore customs: www.coldborecustom.com. I just got my Glock 22 back from him today. His work is at least as good as, and in many cases better, than some of the big names. For $150, return shipping paid, I got a full grip reduction, finger bumps removed, 360 degree "Carry" stippling. This pistol is very special to me, having been gifted to me by my shift mates at retirement, and I wanted nothing but the best.

    I like the grip reduction, but I'm not a fan of stippling.

    Well when you do the reductin, I think the stippling is a must. LOL

    I have been considering www.bowietacticalconcepts.com

    I just looked at the Cold Bore site...I love the fact that you can get varying textures. very nice.

    The first time I had it done, I wasn't sure if I would like the stippling. Let me tell ya', it is INCREDIBLE. It is far more "grippy" than skateboard type tapes. It feels like and IS an extremely secure gripping surface.

    I think your 22 looks great, congrats.

    I tried my hand at it on my G19. I've had a couple 19s and one 23, I just could not get use to them. I've always liked the idea of a G19, but they never felt as good to me as the G17, and I always wound up selling them or trading them off. The arch on the back strap hits my palm too high up, and I hate the feel of it, the finger groove ridges are in the wrong location for me, and my fingers naturally fell right on top of them. Did a little remodeling by removing the ridges (and I never have cared for/nor used, a squared trigger guard, so it went too), flattening the "arch" and did some stippling. The pistol actually feels quite good to me now (for a Block 19 that is ).

    You do some nice work, my friend.

    VERY NICE WORK. Do you "feel" a big difference? Thought of having my Gen 3 G19 done to get it closer to the feel of my 1911's.

    To me, it feels very close to the grip angle of a 1911. I love Glocks mechanically but I have never had a stock one that felt right in my hand. The difference is night and day. I will be very surprised if you regret having it done.

    Looks nice. I guess I would have to feel it in my hand before I took the dive into a reduction.

    100% agreement here.
