Not sure what else I am going to do. Enough for today!

smokin, i took mine all the way down to include those little recesses between the bumps then smoothed the front and stippled the whole grip. you would be amazed at how much better it feels. those little squares aint crap compared to a stipple job. yours looks good but IMHO would look better without the breaks in between, to get it even just run your dremel across the whole thing and restipple, should take you 10 minutes to remove it and 2 hours to stipple it!
i just got done stippling a new G78 field knife handle.......talk about taking forever! i finally switched pens from my fine point i use on guns to my round point i use on everything else. sped things up a bit!!!

Yeah, I am thinking about it. I did a full 360 stipple on my Fullsize M&P9, so I know what you mean about the difference it makes.

I personally prefer the grooves, but you did an excellent job removing them. If you like YOUR pistol more now than before, it was worth it. Good Job.

Thanks. Pics don't do it justice. Not sure what more I'll do just yet.

What would be cool is if Glock would offer interchangeable front strap pieces like the Gen 4 back straps. With finger grooves and without finger grooves.

Stippled. Went heavy on the front and back, left the middle of the sides alone, and went lightly around the sides. Feels so amzing now!

I also removed my bottom bump because it got on my nerves.
I used a dremel, razor blade, and file. It took me about 1.5 hours.

Looks good, you can hardly tell there was a bump ever there.

Thankyou. I was happy with the way it felt in hand with it smooth but but my eyes kept going towards that part of the gun. I then did some more work to blend it in. Im pretty happy with it.

I really like the way you did your backstrap.

I just ground off the finger humps on my Gen 3 G23. At this point I'm trying to decide how I'm going to finish it.

Can anyone tell me if it's okay to grind where the humps were all the way down and smooth off the little plastic nubs that are in between the finger humps so that the whole frontstrap is smooth, will there still be enough plastic left to stipple it without weakening the frame? Or, should I go ahead and stipple over them?

Have an FDE G23 (my first Glock) coming and if the grooves aren't in the right place they're coming off, but the first thing I'm doing is rounding the front of the trigger guard. I don't use this feature and see no point in having it. Besides I think my new Block'll look better without it .

You guys are good. Bought a G19 Gen 4 and my middle finger has been killing me after I shoot it. Can see now after your post it rubbing the trigger guard. Need to get the right size sanding drum for my Dremmel tool. Can see that is definitely the problem. Notice all my other make guns do not make contact with part of the finger that hurts after shooting my Glock.

You should be good to remove them, I did it on my 26. I wouldn't be too agressive with the stipple job though.

Great job on the re-stipple. I have mine set up the same way (but still has the finger grooves) with the aggressive stippling in the front and rear with light stippling on the sides. It's very very effective and I love the way it feels. Once again, good job.

I guess it depends on your hand size, how critical a high hold (or whatever you consider a good hold) is out of the holster, and which exact Glock you are using.
