Anyone in Northern California have a Glockworx grip job?
(Silicon Carbide or Stipple)

I'm thinking about sending a G20SF frame to Glockworx, for a finger groove removal & very slight reduction. This is for a USPSA Limited gun. I can't decide on the Silicon Carbide or stipple, so I'd really like to feel both before I have it done. I'd prefer a G21SF or G20SF, but any Glock will do. I can meet anywhere from the Modesto, East Bay, Stockton or East Bay areas (California).

If you have either grip texture, but are too far away, any info regarding the grip job will help out too.

Both grip jobs are fine. And neither add to the circumference to the grip.

Thanks, I did see that video the other day.

I guess my main concern is about the aggressiveness of the Silicon Carbide. I have Tru-Grips on my G20LS, but a tech @ Glockworx told me the SC texture is WAY more aggressive. It's for a USPSA gun, so carry issues don't apply. My other concern is durability. The same tech said he uses it on his 3-Gun pistol, and it's held up for 5 years (IIRC). I just want as much info as I can get, since I haven't found anyone local that has it.

Meathead, did you ever have the stipple job done? I'm considering sending two frames to them soon and was going to get one of each. I'd be interested in input as well.

I went with the standard stippling, and I'm glad I did. It has more than enough grit, and the ability to be sanded down in certain spots if needed. I could not be happier, and I had my gun back in less than 2 weeks. Craig @ Glockworx is an "arteest". If I could afford it, I'd send every one of my Glocks in for the same treatment. Not only is the stippling absolutely money, the double undercut trigger guard & finger groove removal make the best feeling Glock grip I have ever owned or shot.

I planned to just do the stippling and double undercut. I dont think I want to reduce my grip or remove the finger groves. I have large hands and the factory ergonomics are great for me. But I do get "Glock knuckle" after about 150 rounds.

I didn't have the grip reduced. If you have them undercut the trigger guard, it will stop the Glock knuckle, but your grip will automatically want to shift higher. At that point, the finger grooves don't line up like they used to. I never understood why some guys prefer GEN 2's or to have the finger grooves removed, until I held this gun. I had never held a Glock without FG's, or one that was stippled for that matter. I get it now. Either way I'm sure you'll be happy with their work, post some pics here when you get them back.

Do you have small hands or large hands? Their site mentioned the finger groves would still be OK with large hands after trigger gaurd undercut. I have large hands and that's the only reason I wasn't going to remove them. And it's been at least 8 years since I've held a gen 2 Glock.

I sure which I could hold a few sample before making up my mind. That would be ideal.

I'm somewhere in the middle. The GEN 4 G17 grip feels really small to me, and the GEN 4 G21 (or G20SF) grip feels perfect. All I can say is I have absolutely no regrets about removing the finger grooves. Like I said earlier, if I could afford it, I'd have the same work done to all my Glocks. After I shot this Glock for the first time with no finger grooves, I finally realized how much I don't like them.
