    will this effect the grip structural strength? How bout gun function? I like to modify and smith my guns , but not on my carry guns. Hope it works out well for ya.

    Thanks guys!

    Rocky,

    Should not affect anything. The grip has not been reduced enough to matter. Robar has been cutting grips down and thinning them for some time. Marty Hayes started the trend years ago and I have not read anything negative about it yet.

    The grip feels just as solid as my G23. Actually it feels stronger, as the bottom is thicker than the G23 where they are factory relieved quit a bit.

    Thumbs up Fantastic Job! ~ Great Thread.

    Nice Crisp Instructional Photos Also.
    Any "Brave Souls" here BRAVE ENOUGH to chop their GLOCK!

    GLOCK QUESTION: Slightly Off Topic.
    Are the finger grooves on the GLOCK Grip frames Solid Material?
    In other words...can the finger grooves be removed without adding any "filler material" to the frame?
    If the only problem in removing the finger grooves would be the "strictly cosmetic problem" of making the removed area look "presentable"...then I might consider doing a "finger groove removal job" ~
    I hate the doggone finger gooves...well, (the bottom groove anyway) does not fit my gun hand correctly. Just curious.

    Great job Jim, and great instructional pics. But I'm still gonna have to report this to Gaston.

    Won't that void your warranty?

    QK,
    I have heard and seen pics of the finger grooves machined off of gen 3 Glocks; hence I presume they are solid. I don't like the grooves myself and have been tempted numerous time to remove them. However, if it matters, that would probably void the warranty also.

    That's right! They still keep the freshness in, even with a grip reduction. :)

    I don't know guys, I spend a lot of time on GlockTalk and among other issues, they've got, or used to have, a sticky listing serial numbers of Glocks subject to rail breaks.

    I had one Glock that needed the frame rail "upgrade". I sent it in during the intital mad rush (big mistake). It took me a few months to get it back. I should have waited till the mad rush died down.

    lol!!! There are some thoroughbred idiots there, but there is some civil stuff too, and I enjoy reading some of the Glockaholics comments. There was a surprising thread entitled, "What's Is So Special About H&K" and you would have thought you were reading a thread from the HKPRO forum. I mean guys that have and had Glocks that were praising and defending H&K as a top quality gun.

    I think what happens, some think that Glock Perfection is real and if anything is said to indicate in any way the Glocks could have any deficiency, they instantly loose it.

    Your point well taken though! And let me get back to this thread and re-iterate - good work on the mod!
