    Contemplating the 360 texturing package, finger hump removal, undercut trigger gaurd and magwell cutouts for my G19. I'd be going with the carry texture. I absolutely love the looks of this but, I've never had an opportunity to lay my hands on a glock with custom work of this kind.
    Looking for a few friendly opinions on doing this or not.
    This is my EDC weapon if thats a factor.

    100% yes. I've never seen anyone complain about his work.

    I've had several guns done by Lane at CBC. Great work. Great price. And great turn around. :cool:

    I should have yours finished tomorrow.:supergrin: I have been swamped this summer between my full time police job and shop work. I have been trying my best to get my turn around time back on schedule. I appreciate everyone patience with me. I could half azz the work and get them out a little quicker, but I will not turn out a pistol that doesn't meet my standards.

    With the end of summer things should get back on track. Thanks again everyone.

    On a side note, I have switched hosting companies for my website, and that has thrown my email system into vapor lock. If I haven't responded to your emails, bear with me as I am getting this issue worked out as well.

    To the op

    I've had the same work done on my Gen3 G19 except I went with executive texturing for exclusive IWB carry.
    No regrets. 100% satisfied.

    His work is top notch from what I've seen around here. If I was going to get any custom frame work done, I'd use him.

    I have had hump removal, trigger guard undercut, and texture done on two pistols. The work done on both, a 29 and a 30, were better than anticipated.

    Turn around time and pricing was very reasonable.

    In the near future I'll be getting in line for a third time.

    While I don't have any CBC work done(I like the factory feel), I think his work is about the best out there. If you decide you really want that done, he is the one to send it to.

    Never heard of him but now that I've seen this thread I'm glad I have. The work looks beautiful from the images provided. One day when I get the chance to buy my duty issue Gen4 17 this would be the perfect thing to have done to it. I planned on having the finger grooves removed one day already as they don't fit me perfect on the full size guns.

    I just got my G29 and G21SF back from Lane today. They feel great in my hand. I now can grip the frame, eyes closed, raise the guns up and have a perfect sight picture (if I open my eyes:rofl:). I was very pleased with the reduction of the G29 and really surprised at the reduction on the G21SF. I wonder if Lane does a "rounding job" on the small caliber frames where the 2" x 4" feel goes away but not necessarily grip reduction. If so, my G19 and G34 will go out to him.

    Lane will definitely get one of my G19 sometime soon. I just keep getting sidetracked on other projects, as in Red Dot Sights (RDS) and custom leather holsters. Cold Bore Customs is definitely on my list, and getting closer to the top!!! :thumbsup:

    They seem to do very good work, kind of pricey but I guess you get what you pay for. My G27 really bothers me the way the backstrap kicks out and the trigger gaurd pushes against my middle finger. It's odd, the G19 feels so much better just the way it's slightly different in shape.

    Also, I'd like to get a reduction on the grip size of the G20. The G21 is alright but I've read they can get the G20 down to G17/22 size, which would feel great.
