    Lightbulb Glock knuckle fixes

    Glock Knuckle

    Again, this is what it looks like (click on pics to enlarge):

    Glock Knuckle is caused in part by the wide trigger guards we see on the Glock pistols. It can also be caused by “OVER GRIPPING” the pistol as shown here:

    Wrapping your fingers around the front strap too far will cause Glock Knuckle for sure. The photo below shows the correct Glock Grip:

    Notice that the trigger guard is centered between the 1st and 2nd knuckle.

    But sometimes even with a GOOD GRIP you can slide into overgrip during rapid fire with sweaty hands. Relieving/reworking the underside of the trigger guard REALLY helps. Here’s one of the Glocks I just finished for a customer with BIG hands:

    Can someone please PM and tell me how to get rid of this barrel picture?

    By a wide margin. There's a reason the relieving of the Glock's trigger guard is a staple with the polymer customizers such as Bowie etc.

    I don't think it makes me any less of a man because I want my gun to be more comfortable in my hand when I shoot it. My job requires me to use my hands to repair very small electronic and mechanical parts. If my hands are sore or otherwise torn up because my gun injures me when I shoot it, I'm not going to shoot it.

    I don't really believe that being a MAN means that you have to use something that doesn't fit your hand any more than I believe that it means driving a big pickup truck.

    Amen, it doesn't, it shows intelligence in my opinion. I can't honestly say I know anyone that is better with an uncomfortable feeling firearm than they are one that fits them. The fitting of a handgun to me is no different than the fitting of a quality shotgun or dangerous game rifle.

    Well, now you do, although I wouldn't say Glocks are downright "uncomfortable," I'd just say it was like comparing the comfort of a seat in a Toyota Corolla (Glock) versus the comfort of a seat in a Bentley (HK P30 in my case).

    I mention this because I shoot my Glock 19 better than the P30, the Sig P226, the 1911, etc., just basically any gun I (and most others) would consider more comfortable.

    I've heard of the "Dremel fix" before for Glocks (and other makes) that rub that spot.

    That's why we customize them and make them fit our hands better. Then we add all the creature comforts, all the bells & whistles, etc. we want. Some guys like stock guns, and that's cool, but I find them boring. You just have to personalize them to make them your own.
