    I've searched and admit I've found some stuff that say "just do it yourself" but I am not comfortable with that. I'd like to send it out and have someone do this work for me.

    No special stippling or anything. I'm not worried about resale value as I don't plan on selling it and we all know it's a glock so it's not exactly collectible. :supergrin:

    Anyone have this done or can give some contacts? Or does anyone is CT want to do it for me for a decent price. :whistling:

    Thanks :wavey:

    Thanks for the quick response Fire_Medic, I'll check into them.

    Found a pic of something similar on GT (not mine obviously). It's a g22 with a g27 grip it appears. Very nice looking.

    Might as well throw in an XD. This one was chopped, reduced and re-stippled.

    I'm starting to like the idea of a G23 with a G27 sized grip. Hmmmmmm..........

    interesting idea. this comes up every once in awhile.

    this is the one idea i wish glock would borrow from springfield armory. their XDs can be had with a subcompact grip on their full size or tactical models

    Just curious why one would do this? Is it just to get the best of both worlds? Longer sight radius and barrel but still have the smaller grip? Also how would the balance be, wouldn't it be top and forward heavy?

    Seems to be a viable idea.

    Buy a G26! its my only Glock and im very happy with it. and the gun shop guys (well like they dont have an agenda) more then one told me it is just as accurate as the full size models. I don't know how that could be, with a 3.5" barrel, but it still seems pretty accurate to me.

    I can see this being done on fullsize guns but I really don't see the point in compacts like g19 or 23.
