    Glock Trigger Guard Modification........

    I was getting a finger pinch to my middle knuckle while shooting my Glock 30sf....seems the bump at the rear of the trigger guard was rubbing my finger during fireing...so I investigated....saw a video by Hickok45 on Glock Modifications where he thought by sanding down the trigger guard at the bend that caused the bump was most advantageous and made more room for ease of the grip on the gun....I was hesitant to try this and alter the trigger guard but I figured maybe it will feel better.....I used some fine grit emery cloth and started sanding at that location...after about 15 min. I was finished and what a difference it made.....I love it and it feels great and allows me to gain a better grip in the gun......was wondering if anyone else has modified their Glocks in this way...?

    brace yourself, tho, for those that will rail against altering "perfection".

    Sure did. Glocks are not Perfection" but they do make a nice inexpensive tool.
    My rifle and pistol are tools, I am the weapon.

    Yea, I get "glock knuckle" too. I just am waiting until my 23 gets fubared being carried every day before I modify the frame to my liking. I want to take out the darn bumps on the front of the grip too.

    I had that gun but did not have that problem. However I do have a trigger finger problem with my Micro Desert Eagle as it is so tiny that I can only get a finger and a half grip on it and it took off some skin from my trigger finger banging against the trigger guard. First time that has happened to me in over 40 years but then again I did not start buying and shooting small guns until last year.

    X2. I'm have this same problem right now with my G29, and I can't decide where and how much to sand.
    If you're going to carry one weapon, might as well carry two, because as the saying goes, "Two is one, and one is none."

    Yup, same knuckle problem and solution for me. I'm sure you now agree- sanding is scariest the first time. So after I did the first one, it is just my common procedure when I buy a Glock. I start with a dremmel and finish with sand paper. Next I give the Frog Lube treatment to the slide, barrel & moving parts and it's good to go for thousands of rounds.

    I took a different approach. I just sanded down my finger instead of the Glock. Worked great.

    I've found that stock Glock grips give a perfect ergonomic fit...if you have Lego man hands.

    The mod is typically referred to as an "Under cut trigger guard"

    This is the wife's G19 with cut and other texturing by Bowie Tactical and is one of the best cuts I've seen, if I didn't know any better I'd saw it was molded by the factory that way.
