Most of these "reductions", I realize that this is not a reduction, but anyway, tend to look like crap. A lot of them look really bad. This looks like it could be factory done. I have been considering a G30, now I am considering one with this same treatment. Do you mind if I ask what it set you back and the turnaround time? Congratulations on the new gun!!! Looks functional, and good to boot!

Love my 30sf since I took the plunge here, love Lane's work but can't give mine up for that long... :-)

Glocks look so much better with round trigger guards.

That's awesome looking!! Looks like a factory job at its best!! What was the added cost though?

Thanks for the compliments guys. I am REALLY looking forward to hitting the range tomorrow. It's been a long time, but hopefully it will be a good trip!

Guys,

I just wanted to do this quick review of the work and service I got from Cold Bore Customs (http://www.coldborecustom.com/).

I picked up a new Gen 3, G30sf (My FIRST Glock!) back in May. After spending some time with it, I can understand the desire to "dump the hump". The big thing is that the texturing on the finger groves was so sharp that it was actually creating callouses, not to mention turning a fun long day of shooting into a painful long day of shooting.

After reading some posts and doing some research, I decided to send my beloved Glock off to Lane. While the before picture is kind of boring, the after ones are what I really like!


Before: Box stock, plain G30sf (great gun, but needed some details ironed out):

Like I said, there was nothing really wrong with the gun. It shoots great and is very accurate. The texturing and trigger guard are the main things I didn't like. Well, Lane took care of that and more!

Just check out these "After" picks...

This last picture shows a close up of the trigger, trigger guard, slide release and mag release.
http://i33.photobucket.com/albums/d51/bmikel4/Glock/4a.jpg

The work I had Lane do was:

* Grip Reduction with 360 "Executive" texture.
* Undercut the trigger guard.
* Round the trigger guard off.
* Cutout the mag release.

While the gun was apart, I decided to add a few more extra touches. Here's what I did:

* 3.5lb. Wolf Connector.
* Smooth Trigger.
* Extended Slide Release.
* Polish all trigger parts.
* Stainless Steel Pins.
* Frog Lube (yes folks, I drank the Kool Aid too!)

After all was said and done, I could not be happier with my Glock. This is my CCW, in addition to a nice range gun.

Lane did an outstanding job on the frame, and the finished product is absolutely perfect! It fits so much better in the hand, and the texturing feels awesome. It's not abrasive, but still has plenty of "Bite". Great job, and a great guy to boot!

Frog lube looks and feels great so far. I will be heading to the range on Thursday so I'll give a shout back here when I clean the gun. The slide looks great, and I can't put fingerprints on it if I tried. It also seemed to make the frame look a little more black, too. It's not slick, but hopefully will clean up nice and easy after I'm done.



Where did ya get the stainless steel pins ???
I need some to tighten up a pit, mine are a tad to loose...



Thanks

I got the from Glockmeister.HERE (http://www.glockmeister.com/Glockmeister-Stainless-Steel-Pin-Set-For-Most-3rd-Gen-GLOCK-Models/productinfo/GMPINSS/) is the link.

I hadn't planned on getting them, but I snapped the trigger group pin when I reassembled the pistol. I was irked, but it worked out for the best.

Do you have a trigger pull gauge? Would love to know what the weight is now.

That looks great! What does the mag release cut out do? easier to depress maybe?

Sorry but I don't. I would be interested to see what the trigger pull is now, too. It is noticeably lighter, but I'm not sure by how much. It feels great though.

Yes, and the button is radiused, so it's not as sharp. Looks great, too!

I just saw your pics with the mag release cut out. Very NICE. MY 29 and 21 are out to Lane and asked that if he still had my frames, to do the mag cut outs.
Thanks for the pics.

Now that the grip has been reduced, have you noticed that it prints less? Or have you not had any issues with it printing either way?

Awesome. I've been eyeballing that Executive texture for a Glock 32. After reading this, I'm going to do it. I'm thinking finger grooves removed, hump removed, bobtailed and textured.

You may want to rethink the connector if it's a carry piece, especially if it's not actually helping your accuracy (but even if it was, most pros don't recommend going below stock weight for a carry piece).

I haven't had a problem with printing before. I use a Theiss IWB holster, and even with the stock hump it didn't print. If you're having an issue with printing, removing the hump is so slight that you would still have an issue afterwards.

I'm anxiously awaiting a NY1 trigger, so it will be paired with that (a valid combo even for LE). If that doesn't work, I'll probably go back to a highly polished stock with a #6 trigger spring.

I think your 30sf looks fantastic. I personally am not a fan of grip reductions and texturing but yours truely did come out looking as if it were done by the factory. Great job!

I've never seen any mods to the grip or frame I like until now, wow that is very nice.

Lane looks he did a great job on your 30SF, is the "executive texture" aggressive enough vs the "carry texture" ?

Consort
01-23-2013, 14:37
When you sent your gun in for the work, did you have to fully dis-assemble the frame? (I have always had trouble removing the slide and magazine releases) Was wondering if they could be left in.

The trigger guard looks great. So does the rest of the work, but the guard is sweet!

Your 30 looks great ! I had Lane do a pair of G-19s for me. I hope to send off my 34 someday.

Old OP but more props for Lane's work even though it means the next time I need his services I will have wait longer! He worked over my G23 and it is more akin to a XD grip in respect to the reshaping; I had the finger grooves removed. The best feature of the re-texture is when hands are wet or oily the grip is still "tacky" yet when hands are dry it does not feel grabbing a wood rasp.
