Looks like you did a good job there.

Nice :cool:, A Glock with no finger grooves and rail would be nice for Gen 5

Looks good!

gumbee 03-28-2012 18:25

Looks great! How did you do it(dremel)?

rilkil23 03-28-2012 18:41

How you do that?

smokintonye 03-28-2012 19:44

Thanks guy's!

I started with a Dremmel to take the bulk of it down, then pretty much used whatever I could find to finish it with. Used some 60 grit, 600 grit, 2000 grit. Also used a flat file a little. Used some cloth, and #0000 steel wool too.

It's not perfect, but looks Damn near factory. I wish the pics were bigger.

Nice work

Nice! I love compact Glocks, but hate the finger grooves. I own a 19, 23, and will hopefully be picking up a Gen4 32 tomorrow.

gumbee 03-28-2012 21:30

Thanks for the info. Now to try it on my 30.

ChrisYZFR1 03-28-2012 21:38

Why the dislike of the finger grooves?

SK2344 03-29-2012 00:00

Very Easy to do!

I have 4 Glocks and the first thing I do when I purchase a Glock is to remove the Finger Grooves. I do it very carefully with the Dremel Sanding Tool, then finish it off with sandpaper, then I stipple it with a wood burning tool and thats it! With my small hands they all feel great and I shoot much better.

This is basically the first thing I do to every Glock i acquire. The "humps" do not fit my fingers at all, and must go. The top hump crowds my middle finger, and the second hump hits dead square in the middle of my ring finger every time. I just take the angle grinder to it until the front strap is straight like a Gen2. On the large frames (20, 21) I take all the checkering off the front strap, down to smooth plastic, and apply 3M tread tape to the front strap. This reduces te overall size of the grip a little, and the tape gives superior grip.

Happy shooting, Tom

Looks great. How does it shoot?

Shoots great! I put on some Trijicon HD sights, and I love'em! I have them on my Gen 2 17 also.

Someone asked why remove the humps? For some people like myself, depending on your hands, the humps end up under your fingers, or forcing your fingers into a position they don't naturally want to be. Especially if your hands are large...Which is my case.

just did my gen 3 G19, easy to do and you did a good job. i didn't finish it to a factory finish on the groove area since i knew i was going to stipple and it didn't matter. now fits my hand perfect. i took mine off since the crimson trace add a little width and length to the handle, now it is good to go. i'm a 'dremel professional' actually a Foredom i used so i just switched to different grade sanding drums until i got it where i like it and then under cut the trigger guard to chock my grip up a little more.

once again good job!

Thanks alot! I keep thinking about undercutting the trigger guard too. I keep thinking about stippling to, I have done alot in the past on my M&P's and do a pretty good job of it......We'll see:cool:
