      Question Can polymer frames be modified?

      Can the corners of the grip on a polymer frame, i.e. Glock be rounded off without compromising the frame or finish?

      They sure can, and no problems generally result. You can even go further than just rounding edges if you want, just don't cut into any area that supports the slide rails.

      Attached is a pic of my Glock 23 with substantial frame mods, including a grip reduction.

      Everything on a plastic framed gun can be modified just like their metal cousins. Bowie Tactical Concepts specializes in these mods http://www.bowietacticalconcepts.com/index.html

      Robar and many companies alter frames. There was one at the Houston gunshow I went to 2 weeks ago..

      Just have someone do it who knows what they are doing...

      Thumbs up

      OUTSTANDING! Thanks gentlemen! I'm now more confident about purchasing a G26 and making it fit my hand better. The information and encouragement I've seen on this forum is indescribable. Thanks again!

      I don't know if this will go through to the right thread, so please bear with me. I was interested in Glock frame reduction and stippling and tried it on my 27. It took about 3 hours I went slow and took my time and the results are amazing. You can surf the net and find good how to sites.

      Thanks...1st try...removed finger humps too, because my fingers rested on top of them.

      Next time I'll do a better job as with the truck bed liner, less is better.
