Anyone have reliable instructions on how to chope my G19 to a G26 size grip?
You'd probably have to have that professionally done. Cold Bore Customs might be able to do something for you. Never used their service myself but I've heard good things. I think the owner is a member here as well but I'm not sure...
My questions is why would you want to?!? It can't see it making it that much more concealable. I would think the reduced stability would outweigh any improved concealability.
I would rethink that decision if I were you. But I'm not you so have at it! If you do why not take some before and after pics so you can post or remember what that beautiful 19 used to look like.
That looks like a teardrop on my keyboard.
Buy a 26 or trade the 19 for a 26.
buy a 26 and keep the 19 , can't have to many guns
I have done quite a few 19/23 to 26/27 chops. It's easy to chop off the grip. The hard part is making it look like I wasn't cut up. Here is a 23 cut to 27 dimensions that I did for a local detective. This one just has the standard texture job to keep it looking close to factory. TXPO
CBC does great work. I've sent Lane 4 of my Glocks and will be sending the rest eventually.
Pretty slick Lane. Another job well done.
CLEANEST chop I have seen yet. Very very nice work. I'm impressed.
Amputate your little finger. The G26 will feel better and the Glock 19 won't know the difference.
Beautiful work! Just one question, why didn't you undercut the trigger guard below the mag release to get a higher hand hold?
Good job! Did you retexture to cover up that it was cut or could you do one without stippling it too?
Because the customer didn't want the undercut done. TXPO
Yes it can be done with out the texturing. It doesn't look near as nice and finished. The patent stamp is visible on the right panel and part of the glock logo is cut on the left panel. The front and back would be fine with the stock grenade left in place. This customer wanted it to look as much like a factory job as possible. It did hate the factory grenade checking and wanted it replaced as well. TXPO
Can you dump the hump/grip reduction without texturing or changing the factory texturing on the sides
I just don't get it? I wouldn't want to give up the grip length... that's the whole damn benefit of the compact size...it sure as hell isn't the extra minute barrel length...
I will never understand the chop... there isn't anything difficult about concealing a compact..
Just my $.02 I guess...
Oh, but regardless of my opinion of the chop I do think Lanes work does look great.
