I just sold a sig 226 because it was to big for me to CCW. I'm back to a snubnose revolver now. I think a Glock 19 would be a great carry gun for me. However, I don't want to wait 6+ months to get a gen 4 (I really want the smaller grip of the gen 4). What do you think about the idea of getting a Glock 17 gen4 now and having the grip chopped to G19 length? I would most likely be carrying IWB so the barrel length should be a minor issue. I wouldn't care about the loss of the extra backstraps. I would still probably pick up a G19 gen 4 when they come out. Who would you trust to do the work on a new Glock?
