My Dog Used My Glock As A Chew Bone

    Yes, it is true and I suppose the particulars aren't important at this point. One of my dogs got a hold of my Gen 2 Glock 23 and chewed/shredded the bottom of the grip. She managed to change (slightly) the internal dimensions of the mag well as well as the space in the back of the grip where many of us use a plug from Scherer, et al. In addition to the obvious damage, the bottom of the grip now bites into my palm. While I can still seat and extract a magazine, firing the weapon would definitely be uncomfortable!

    Is this a job for Glock USA? Maybe someone who does grip reductions/repairs? Is a repair even possible or do I have to locate a new lower for my Gen 2 23?

    I love how a GLOCK can get dropped out of an airplane, frozen, run over by a truck, left in a mud puddle for a week, banged with a hammer, etc, and still be in good shape... And a dog manages to make it need repairs lol.

    On a serious note, I'd guess its a job for GLOCK if they'll cover it as the part you're describing is as far as I know part of the same mold as the rest of the frame so no easy swapping of parts there. A replacement frame runs in excess of 200 IIRC. Just an uneducated guess though.

    I'd just send it to a custom outfit and have it re-molded into a shape you like.
    I've had to replace frips on my Ruger Sp101 and a nice set of hogue wood on an N frame because of 'pit bull attack'.:supergrin:

    Gotta love dogs.

    German Wirehaired Pointer. Unlike most dogs, there are spaces in between each of her teeth so each tooth acts like its own chisel. She easily destroys the Kong for power chewer toys and even the Galileo Bones the stores say are indestructible. Several years ago she earned the name, "Sadie...Spawn Of Satan".

    She doesn't know how lucky she is that the price of a good German Wirehaired Pointer puppy could buy a number of Glock 23 lowers......:steamed:

    i think you can ask every gunsmith in the world, and you won't like the answers.

    just my .02, i'd contact glock on this one.

    I understand the desire for pics! Unfortunately, I dropped off my Glock at the local gun store where there are several Glock master armorers and asked them to research the options, including ordering a new lower from Glock. Depending upon the answers I may still be contacting Glock myself.

    These are not my pictures, but they are almost identical to what Sadie did to my Gen 2 23.

    Best response in the whole thread. :rofl:

    One of my officers has a G22 that munched on by a mutt... cosmetic damage only in that case.

    Perhaps a steel-framed pistol has a place in your inventory.

    I'd contact a reputable company to chop it to the size of the g27 grip length. Hell that's what I'd be interested in (except with a g19 upper).
