    Glock Grip Treatment - The OS Way!

    Thought I'd share. :)

    I really like the grip on this gun now, and dropping the mag no longer requires me to shift the gun in my hand. I still need to use a cut down extended mag release though.

    Thumbs up oregonshooter ~ Nice Job

    You've got some good guts pal.

    Jumping right in there on that pistol w/ the ol' soldering iron!
    Very nice job. Looks really good too as well as being super funftional.
    I never liked abrasive tape & I refuse to use it.
    You are correct that Glocks are very slippery shooting when wet.

    That might be the perfect modification for my Glock 36.
    I wonder if I'll honestly try doing it though.

    That looks really good-I would definitely be doing some serious practice work first though...

    That is a extremely nice mod for a Glock! I'm still a coward about mods, but your results are excellent. A lot of attention to detail shows!

    Great job OS!

    But I kinda wish I hadn't seen this; it makes me think I can/should do it.

    Couple of questions if I may,

    About how long did it take?


    What watt solder iron?


    Round tip?


    How do you prevent sharp edges from developing around the "crater"?


    Then, I'm not sure I want to know this; that just tempts me more.

    I Am Thinking that something that would add a bit more control to doing this modification would be the fine Variable/Adjustable Heat type soldering irons that are used for doing stained glass work.

    Believe it or not I have absolutely no problem at all with taking a file or a Dremel or any other "material removal tool" to a metal firearm. Doing this modification on a plastic frame would seem totally alien to me.

    Nice job.

    I can only imagine the time, and attention to detail it took. I just cut up a bike tube, slipped it over the grip, and called it good.

    Me too, QK. I seem to be braver on metal than plastic.
