    What is your experience with removing the 6 o'clock bump on the bottom of the trigger guard? I know that a moto tool will do it, but I'd like to hear from anyone who's had some experience with this particular operation. Thanks!

    Do you use tape or white-out to mark your course? Has anyone made a metal jig for such an operation?

    I did it once for a friend, I eyeballed it. It came out nice. The key is, go slowly because you can always take more off. A Dremel should be issued with your Glock upon purchase.

    I've done it and prefer it to a stock grip.
    Actually,I only remove the 'bump' at an angle across the bottom.
    I grip the pistol and tape off right ahead of where my knuckle rides and sand it down.It looks diagonal,from one side it looks stock and from the other side you can see materail removed.
    Go SLOW and BE CAREFUL.

    I have done this to many of my Glocks. Don't know why they have the silly bugger there in the first place. All it does is create a callous on my ring finger. I use a dremmel with a sanding disc. I remove the hump then taper the side of the trigger guard for my trigger finger. Sand front to back with some 180 Grit to even out the lines and color and then I hit it with a lighter flame to soften and smoth it. It has worked well for me. J.Michael

    I use Dremel tools when I'm in a hurry and when I'm working on something inexpensive.

    That doesn't apply to my firearms. Use a wooden dowel of appropriate size wrapped in fine sandpaper at an angle. Pretty hard to screw up your frame that way. Remember you can always take more off if you go slowly.

    Is this "bump" located where the trigger guard meets the grip?

    I did not do mine that extreme. I just wanted the anoying hump gone. I get bit by Glocks so I didn't want a higher grip. BE CAREFUL. J.Michael
