    As the title says I sent my beloved G26 to Mr. Owens at Coldborecustom.com I asked for the standard Grip reduction and CARRY TEXTURE stippling. He answered all my questions and stayed in touch with me via email throughout the entire process which only took from Tuesday to Friday of this week, yes I had my pistol back in 3 DAYS!!! The work is incredible and professional and clean. It isnt exactly a grip reduction, as the trigger reach is essentially the same which is ok, i have large hands and the grip was fine before, i just wanted to get rid of the hump as it was annoying me. And now that its gone it feels much better in my hand reminds me of an XD. The stippling is just right, not too aggressive and not too slippery no more Talon Grips for me which are a great product by the way! I kept the finger grooves as they dont bother me at all. I highly recommend Mr. Owens' work to anyone interested in having this type of work done if I ever buy another Glock Im sending them to him! Now for the pictures and theres alot of em!

    Without the "hump", does the G26 now point low?

    For me no it may for others, the grip angle is unchanged so its going to point the same way but some people are just weird like that haha
