    Any Glock owners that have had a grip reduction done on their handgun in the Lane County/Eugene area?

    I am considering this modification but would like to eyeball one in person.

    Thanks for looking. :thumbup:

    I had my G27/33 done by Arizona Response Systems,and I bought my G32 with a Robar reduction already done...

    As you can see,the ARS reduction was more involved,they rounded the trigger guard and inletted the gripframe a bit where the second finger goes,resulting in a slightly lower bore axis in relation to the placement of the hand...Plus the stippling is much more aggressive,definitely necessary on a gun that size in that caliber...

    Nice pictures kirkcdl.
    Did your accuracy change for the better on the 27 and 33?
    I imagine the lower bore axis would help with follow up shots.

    Because I cannot stand the "Glock hump" I never tried the G27/33 with the stock grip,so I can't say whether accuracy changed.I bought the G32 with the grip reduction already done.I actually searched until I found a grip-reduced G32,so I can't help there either,sorry...

    I also sent my glock 20 to gripreductions.com. Dale did a damn good just and it's my permanent nightstand gun. I'll be making a youtube video of the gun and what was done when i get the time.

    Wow, now that's a beavertail! I ordered mine with a carry beavertail, about 1/4". I'll post a pic of mine when I get it back.

    Here's mine I just got back from Dale at gripreductions.com

    He did an A+++ job with the reduction. Excellent "hybrid" 360 texture, in between carry and tactical, off hand finger frame and underside trigger guard texture and relieving to lower axis of bore, carry beavertail, removal of fingergrooves and hump. It's like a brand new gun, made for me. Now it points like a 1911. It has Ameriglo tactical green front/yellow rear nightsites you can read a newspaper by. Cost? Traded the used P99 for the NIB G23; the sites were $79 with the online discount and the grip job was $170. Now I have the best fitting and looking combat carry weapon I am willing to take into the Northwest's weather.

    Perhaps I missed the information on the Grip Reductions site but just how much thinner does the grip become? How does it, for example, compare to a 1911?

    If by thinner, you mean the index - front to back, the amount of material removed is significant, making even the smaller hands able to emcompass the grip, perhaps even more than a 1911. I now have a slight problem - the fingertips of the right hand now imprint on the palm of my left hand in a Weaver stance due to the reduced circumfrence. With regards to width, it's minimal since all that's done is to melt/retexture the smooth Glock sides.

    I think i'm going to send my Glock 19 to dale too. It's going to be my daughter's gun and i think the reduced grip will fit her smaller hands better. drstrangelove is correct the actual width of the grip doesn't really change, but the removal of the glock hump does make a difference. It's like changing the backstraps on a XDM or M&P or other handgun that has the interchangeable backstraps.
