    Glock grip texturing

    I know many people complain about the grips of Glock pistols. Particularly the gen 3's and before. Their slick grips have even spawned a niche aftermarket for add on grips. I tried a few of those, but ultimately decided to go a more permanent route by texturing my G19's grips with a run of the mill soldering iron. Here's how it turned out.

    Glock grip texturing

    I just textured the existing side pattern and the upper portion of the back strap, but it holds like velcro to my hand now.

    Glock grip texturing

    A lot of people just stab rows and rows of tiny holes into the pistol to create the grip texture, but I personally don't care for the look of that particular technique.

    So, I used a lot of short squiggly lines over one another to create a faux wood grain.... It grips well.

    Looks good! With all due respect this is why I have migrated all my Glocks to Gen 4.

    I've not had a problem with my Glock 30 grip even on the worst hot, humid, sweat-dripping-off-the-nose days here in FL. I suppose I should coat my hand with blood and oil before i claim it's a waste of time.

    Nearly every stippling job I've seen looks like it was done in a garage by someone with shaky hands. Yours at least looks decent, so you get a couple of OldVet points for not performing a hack job.

    Looks good! Getting a Gen 4 solved the grip problem for me!

    Glock grip texturing

    I hadn't had any problems with my grips either until I took a force- on- force class. Exertion and sweat made my Glock quite slippery. The slip on grips tend to migrate under that kind of action too. You could end up with mag release covered or just simply an awkward grip position under stress.

    It's not for everyone, but I feel like it gives me a few more degrees of control over my pistol in virtually any scenario.

    I prefer smoooooooth naked polymer....and a pair of shooting or weight lifting gloves. Not quite so "permanent".

    Looks good though. I've been shooting Glocks for 20 years and have yet to have one jump out of my hand in iDPA matches or range sessions.
    I must have "frog" sticky hands.

    Looks good, I bought the Talon Grips for my Glock and XD-S just incase I would ever want to remove the extra grip.
