Thanks to the few guys who tried to help
This is who I contact to Order Parts from Georgia, I'm sure if you get in touch with her if she can't help you she can surely point you in the right direction.

If your intention is to get Glock to warranty that, then good luck.
It was modified and it's not Glock's fault that there is now a hole in the frame. Most likely, they will tell you that you'll have to send them the gun and pay for a new frame.
But, you never know what they will say until you call.
Best of luck.
Thanks but I don't want to waste anyone elses time with this. I'd just wanted to contact Glock to see if there were any options for a replacement frame.
Everyone always says to contact "warranty" so that's why I'm asking for them.
I want to ask if there is an option for replacement, not for any warranty for the issue with the gun....
This is why I think frame reductions are dumb. They look like a ruined gun to me and are compromising the frame strength. You also void your warranty, obviously.
There used to be an option to replace a frame. I think the cost the last time I checked was $175.00.
I agree with the poster that said grip reductions are dumb.
I never understood the concept of somebody buying a gun and then trying to make modifications to it like I have seen people do to Glocks. Just because it is a polymer pistol and one can make these reductions, doesn't mean that one should.
I wonder how come you don't see people butchering $800-$1,000 HK pistols.....They also have a polymer frame. <shrug>
A reduction done properly would never do that. Pretty obvious that is a bad garage job.
A hump removal like Cold Bore Custom does not remove any material. A reduction like I had done by GripReduction.com fills in the hollow cavity with epoxy then is ground down to size. Neither would effect the strength.
Don't be afraid of things just because you don't understand it.
I kind of figured that but I wanted to pass that along.
put a grip sleeve on it and call it a day....
Maybe they do it because they wish to do so?
Good advice, just shoot it as is and try not to think about the little hole under your palm. If it really bugs you, go get a tube of that steel putty stuff they sell at Home Depot (NOT JB Weld) and stick it into the area inside the grip where the hole is so it fills it in. Once it dries take a small file and smooth it out, then mask off the grip and hit it with some low-gloss spray paint. I did an butt ugly but perfectly functional grip reduction to a G23 ten years ago using the same materials and the pistol has held up fine over many thousands of rounds.
Or buy a new frame for around $200. I'd part out the pistol (upper is worth $300-$325, and someone will give you at least $75 for the lower) and buy another used pistol before I spent $200 on a new frame. I believe early non-rail G30's go for around $400-$425.
Let us know what Glock says, Good Luck.
I love the look of the non-rail G30 BTW.
Oh, I understand it. The main reason I dislike it is because it looks terrible, even if done professionally. Don't respond to posts if you don't understand them.
Now you are changing your story. First it was a strength issue, now it is a "looks" issue.
You should think before you post.
I'm liking the above post more and more evey time I think about it.
It shoots great and feels great in my hand. I just freaked out a little after seing the hole. Not sure what I'll do now..
Thanks for the posts
If you like the way it feels a grip sleeve or the rubberized Talon Grip might be the ticket. Get a bike inner tube and make your own sleeve.
Why not just buy a gun that fits your hand and you shoot well rather than spending money to get it butchered up and when things go bad, have to spend even more money to try and fix it?
I had a similar issue when I stippled my g17.. I cut down the trigger housing and put some play doh in the grip and epoxied the hole shut soild as a rock and you can't even notice!
