I like longer sight radiuses. I have a better chance of hitting what I am aiming at with a 4" barrel, but with the glock, I get stuck with a grip that prints when I carry as I am only 150 pounds soaking wet. Do I go with a Glock 19 and print the grip through my shirt, or loose sight radius and go with the sub-compact? I chose to go another route! Before you all yell at me and say that my warrantee from block is dead, I didn't care. I took a gen 2 G19, carefully as I could cut the grip down to a Glock 26 length! Now I have the best of both worlds! My first time I got a little off with my grip angle so there is less material on the front of the grip than the rear, but it still works great! I am thinking of producing a product that you could put a Glock into, slide the assembly into a cut off saw, and cut the grip down to the right size and angle. Then it would need to be finish sanded and away you go! Have a G19 and cut it to a 26? No problem. Have a G17 and want a 19 length? no problem, add a spacer. I am trying to see if there is a market for something like this as the prototype will be spendy. Shoot me a note and tell me what you think. Pics coming soon!
