    Is there anyone who removes finger grooves from Glocks that does top notch work ? I looked for a post but was unable to locate.

    Several people herehave done so just with a dremel. Not difficult to do at all, and it ended up looking not too bad. Dremel the finger groove bumps smooth and follow with fine sandpaper to make it smooth.

    Another guy, mad scientis I think it was stippled a glock grip with a soldering iron. It looked really sweet. I think he charges $75 to do it.

    glockrockin: I have another solution for you. I like the grooves in third gen frames. I have a couple of second gen, non-finger groove, Glocks in excellent condition. I might be interested in switching frames with you. Send me an email or PM me!

    WHile I love glocks with a passion, they do not fit my hand as well as they could. I would rather attempt to remove grooves and shoot the guns I love, versus having to buy a different brand.

    Sounds like Glockster might have a better option.

    My only concern is it will most likely void your warranty if the frame cracks.

    Another suggestion would be to sell the 3rd gen gun and buy a 2nd gen gun. It souldn't be that hard to find one.

    Which model do you have?

    G 32. (.357 Sig). I am also on the hunt for a good deal on G 34 or G 35 as well.

    I am uncomfortable with the possibity of voiding frame warranty on the 32. I am unconcerned about the 34 or 35 as I want to build a sissy race gun. ;f

    Are their still nice clean 2nd gen's out there to be had ?

    The models you are looking for would be harder to find, than say, a G19 or G17.

    I'd do some looking first. Maybe post a WTB?

    Ill bet a mill would work great, maybe a machinist in your area. I have access to one, but I mostly do metal work on it, never thought about plastic.
