That might be a valid option, I just can't finance it.

You also may consider dremeling off checkering (and maybe a tad deeper) and stippling or grip taping it to regain some texture.

I have a standard Glock 21 and am considering dremeling the top part of backstrap where the web of my hand fits to alleviate some of the 21's boxy feel; however, I have not figured out how to do this cleanly. The trigger undercut is easy since the Dremel drum fits nicely in this space.
Thanks SpaceMonkey. I've already been considering doing the undercut. In fact, that was one of the mods I did on the lower that was swapped out. I mentioned that the GR was one of the mods that I didn't regret. The undercut was also a mod that I didn't regret.

I undercut (rounded) the trigger-guard on my G21 where the bottom of the trigger guard meets the frame, as well as taking off a little material on the bottom rear side of the trigger-guard (rounded it) where my middle finger rests, and that does make a BIG difference in the "feel" of the grip. I used Swiss hand files and 600 & 1000 grit wet/dry sandpaper.

Thanks for the replies. I actually solved the "grip angle problem" by installing a smooth Grip Force adapter. I love this thing. It feels much better than I anticipated. The GFA (imo) is perfect for solving the problem that a percentage of glock owners experience with the glocks. I recommend trying this before doing a GR.

Just got it back, haven't had time to shoot it. The grip is very nice, no more hump, feels like a 1911.

What was the turnaround time? I'm at 5 weeks so it's gotta be getting close.

That sounds about right, it was 4-6 weeks.
