Who has had their grips of their glocks chopped down to accomodate the next size down magazine. I have a 17 and would like the smaller grip of the 19 and am not sure if it is something that could be done myself (with great care of course) or if I should send it off to one of the reputable glocksmiths. I really don't feel like paying $60 plus shipping both ways for something I can do myself. Your thoughts please

I wouldn't do it myself,but that is just me.I am a big DIY guy but when it comes to chopping the grip I couldn't do it.
I was wondering the same thing about the grip>I think a g17 with a chopped grip would carry nicely.DO you have any links of glock gunsmtihs that are good?I am thinking of getting some work done to my g17

just use google to find some smiths. I want to try to find someone local who could do it for me since I'm leo and can't really party with my gun for a long period of time.

Why not just get a 19? The difference in barrel length is not significant at all.

Try Lone Wolf and buy the slide and barrel to make a 19L.

Here's a couple that we have done.

We chopped this 17 to 19 for Duane Daiker of Concealed Carry Magazine



This is a 17 chopped to a 19 without reduction compared to a stock 19.



A 22 chopped to a 23.



A 21 chopped to a 30


And a 19 chopped to a 26

that was my same deal. I have the gun for a while and really like. not sure I could sell it and get a 19 w/o having to spend too much $$. Kinda just wanted to modify a gun I was perfectly happy with so I will be happy with it long. That will also make my wife happy.

Don't do it they look bad and accomplish nothing.

sure it looks bad if you have an incompetent smith do it.I see no reason why a really good smith couldn't do this W/O messing it up cosmetically
