    If thats your thing OK I guess . I never understood why any one would want to mess up the clean lines for that effect . Educate me .

    it give's more control of the weapon, the gun does not move in your hand. Either firing or just holding it. In LE work sometimes you might have sweaty hands and factory glocks can get a little slippery. And a grip cover just makes it bigger some times harder to hold.

    Now i know that i'm NOT going to use this one for LE, but it's a small frame with a big bang, so more control means no chance of dropping it or having to hold to tight. IMO.

    I am assuming you are an LEO by these statements.


    Your department allows the use of personally (user) modified handguns?

    Some people view their Glock's as tools and not just something to look at. Assuming that is the case, then stippling much improves the texture of Glocks less than stellar grips.

    Even Glock knows there was room for improvement, hence RTF. Think of it as DIY RTF. And it's much cheaper by the way.

    Good looking work. Most LE agencies that I know do not have an issue with texturing the Glocks as long as they are not department issued. Alaska PD at one time even sent thier issued G21's to Robar for grip reductions if requested by the officer. I carry a modifed G23, my dept has no issues with it. It is no different than installing different grips on any pistol. Texturing and grip reductions do not effect the mechanical function of the pistol. Yes they in some cases may not be asthetically pleasing, but it does serve a useful function. During extened shooting sessions espcially in humid climates like here in Texas, Polymer pistols get very slick. The texturing minumizes the pistols movement in your hand. It does the same thing the grip tape type, and slip on grips do. However it provides a permenant grip surface thatw ill not wear out, or move. Even Dave Sevigny has used a textured Glock for some competitions. I have done many officers duty pistols, XD's, Glock, M&P. It is really just preference of what different folks want. I love showing off my ugly G23, plus gives me free advertising.....:rofl:

    i used a small tork bit and a torch. long.. long... process but i think it came out well. After it was done i hit it with a little heat to round off the edges. Not to rough and still alot grip with out being like 80 grit.

    I think it looks clean and functional. I have an rtf2 and LOVE how it feels in my hand compared to my buddies g21 rtf. Maybe you can make some cash from your fellow officers :)
