Has anyone had the Barsto grip reduction on a Glock 20?
Damn that looks nice, The 20 may fit my boxing glove hands after all.
Anyone had it done?
I like the look, but wounder how it feels, if it is worth the cost to cut down..I offen thought about it to get my G20 cut down. Id like to feel one in my hands to tell. or know some who has had it done..........
I highly recommend the Robar grip reduction and beavertail for the Glock 20.
The barsto looks much better to me, anyone had it done ?
Echo AWMP's question. Which would you recommend, the Barsto or the Robar reduction?
I don't know, I just had my mitts on a 3 gen G20 and it felt pretty good to me, I normally carry a G22 at work, so it might be a good thing if it felt sort of like that, who knows.
Hope someone in the weekend crowd will chime in.
Still interested in the answer. Since no one I know has either reduction, how would you go about deciding?
I'm looking at getting this done as well, but it looks like many people are looking at it, but few have done it. I guess I would decide by the price and any other work that you wanted to get done on the pistol. If you plan on having a Bar-Sto barrel fitted to the pistol, I guess I'd go Bar-Sto. If Robar is cheaper and that is all the work you plannned on doing, I think that their reputation is very good and you could use them. Just my 2 cents and that is how I will decide. LIV
I called and talked to Barsto about the grip reduction. $145.00 plus 15.00 for shipping it back to me, takes about 7 days. There is no reduction in frame strength.
The only down fall I could see is the price, lol. I looked at Robar as well but just did not like the looks.
Still pondering if to get it done or now. I was hoping someone else would get their pistol done first, lol.
It may end up being my fathers day present, but still up in the air.
I have not seen tha Bar Sto reduction but I can assure you there is nothing to dislike about the Robar grip reduction as far as cosmetics are concerned. The grip needs no add on tape and is professionly done. I shot mine today in 90 degree heat and humidity and it is superb.
Thanks for the info.
I got looking around tonight and went to Arizona Response Systems website. Supposedly the guy doing the grip reductions started them for Robar and moved on to his own business. He has got some great pictures and diagrams and is cheaper than Bar-Sto. Just another thought for those of you who are undecided like I am. www.arizonaresponsesystems.com
Hope that helps, Doug
The Bar-sto is the best looking reduction I have seen by far. The finish and shape of some of the others looks like a amateur did it and that is what kept me away from a reduction. I may now get one from Bar-sto. It doesn't look like someone used a paint roller to finish it and the grip looks even and shaped properly. Some of the others look tapered far too much also.
Thats why I will never get a Robar reduction. It just looks ugly.
P.S. I have seen a Robar reduction done on a 21 and it is a lot more comfortable than the stock grip.
Thanks for another, seemingly good, option. Am also undecided. Do any of you have a grip reduction done by Arizona Response Systems? They have a good web site, but is hard for me to tell the quality, who may well be great if he started them for Robar, from a site.
Worked great on my 23 and 19 . . .
I had a grip reduction done on my G29 by Arizona Response Systems several years ago. The quality was good and it made a world of difference in the trigger reach and the feel of the grip.
