    Custom Glock

    I have mentioned my reduced grip G23 on a few occasions. I wanted to show a couple of pictures of it. Here is a comparison to a Gen 3 G32. They have the same basic frame. Arizona Response Systems did the work.

    Change the square trigger guard to a round one
    Fill the curved cutout on the bottom rear of the magazine well and extend the new grip surface over it
    Bevel the magazine well to a funnel
    Trigger Guard relief for higher grip
    Refinish slide in METACOL III™

    Yea, it was the runner-up for the ugliest gun in the world award. Of course, it was all Glocks that were up for the award.

    Man I don't know if I could do that to my G23. That thing is ugly, I actually enjoy the grip on my 23. Does that make it more enjoyable to shoot or carry or something?

    Reduced grip Glocks all look funny... smaller at the bottom than the top? or just an illusion?

    Since I broke down and bought a glock-30 I have toyed with doing a small shrink on the grip.

    What does the texture feel like? In the pics it looks close to a sandpaper style.

    I guess that if your gun is wrinklier than you are, it makes you feel young. That's the only reason I could see for doing that.

    I dont know if they can put that many wrinkles on it for you Zhur. I can ask...

    The texture changes from place to place. Heavy on the palm and light in the trigger area.

    I have odd hands. Wide palms and short fingers. The reduction aids my grip. All of my 1911s get slim grips and flat mainsprings for the same reason.

    Hmm.. great start getting rid of the finger grooves and rail (IMHO, rails are superfluous on a carry piece).

    Now how about getting a fully supported barrel from Briley, Jarvis or Wilson?

    Whatchoo talkin' 'bout Willis?

    You got 11 years on me hehe

    Besides, don't hate me because I'm beautiful!


    Nah.. in all seriousnessnessness, if you shoot it better, who cares how ugly it is...

    but if ugliness means accuracy, I think the phrase about a gnats arse comes to mind.

    I like Bill's gun, too, but I'm a bit worried about it functioning reliably.

    It has no ejection port!!!
