View Full Version : My Dog Used My Glock As A Chew Bone

Yes, it is true and I suppose the particulars aren't important at this point. One of my dogs got a hold of my Gen 2 Glock 23 and chewed/shredded the bottom of the grip. She managed to change (slightly) the internal dimensions of the mag well as well as the space in the back of the grip where many of us use a plug from Scherer, et al. In addition to the obvious damage, the bottom of the grip now bites into my palm. While I can still seat and extract a magazine, firing the weapon would definitely be uncomfortable!

Is this a job for Glock USA? Maybe someone who does grip reductions/repairs? Is a repair even possible or do I have to locate a new lower for my Gen 2 23?

I love how a GLOCK can get dropped out of an airplane, frozen, run over by a truck, left in a mud puddle for a week, banged with a hammer, etc, and still be in good shape... And a dog manages to make it need repairs lol.

On a serious note, I'd guess its a job for GLOCK if they'll cover it as the part you're describing is as far as I know part of the same mold as the rest of the frame so no easy swapping of parts there. A replacement frame runs in excess of 200 IIRC. Just an uneducated guess though.

I'd just send it to a custom outfit and have it re-molded into a shape you like.
I've had to replace frips on my Ruger Sp101 and a nice set of hogue wood on an N frame because of 'pit bull attack'.:supergrin:

Gotta love dogs.

German Wirehaired Pointer. Unlike most dogs, there are spaces in between each of her teeth so each tooth acts like its own chisel. She easily destroys the Kong for power chewer toys and even the Galileo Bones the stores say are indestructible. Several years ago she earned the name, "Sadie...Spawn Of Satan".

She doesn't know how lucky she is that the price of a good German Wirehaired Pointer puppy could buy a number of Glock 23 lowers......:steamed:

i think you can ask every gunsmith in the world, and you won't like the answers.

just my .02, i'd contact glock on this one.

Pictures please!

I understand the desire for pics! Unfortunately, I dropped off my Glock at the local gun store where there are several Glock master armorers and asked them to research the options, including ordering a new lower from Glock. Depending upon the answers I may still be contacting Glock myself.

These are not my pictures, but they are almost identical to what Sadie did to my Gen 2 23.

Perhaps a steel-framed pistol has a place in your inventory.

I'd contact a reputable company to chop it to the size of the g27 grip length. Hell that's what I'd be interested in (except with a g19 upper).

If the slide rails screw in then just order a new grip. If not, send it back to Glock, They might take pity on you.

It can be done fairly easily. Some call them a long 26 or 27. They seem pretty cool. Basically , have a gunsmith chop the mag well off to the mag length of the 27

While I'll grant you they're hell on furniture, I don't think a cat could destroy a Glock.


I don't blame the dog it doesn't know any better, the person who left it where the dog could get a hold of it is the one who needs a kick in the butt.

Keep the gun just like it is. Every time you want another one, just show this one to the old lady, and tell her the dog ate another of your guns. You will need to replace it.

If you look closely, I think he cut a little too much off. He can barely get two full fingers on the grip.

Lesson learned?! Keep your guns out of reach of children AND dogs...It would of been even worse if your pooch was chewing on a loaded G23 and it went off..Explain that one to the police AND your insurance company...)-:

1. Make some pictures and post them.
If you don't know how or can't, send them to me and I will post them.
2. Call Glock and send the gun in, there might be more damage you don't see.
The power of a dog is quite a bit, so maybe even the rail is off.
Glock will replace the frame with a Gen3 frame and they charge somewhere $50 for the job.
I would ask if they can actually even install a Gen4 frame.
On the good side, they will replace all the internals in the slide and magazine as well.
On the bad side, the frame will have a new serial number not matching the slide/barrel.

One thing here, the particulars ARE IMPORTANT! I'm glad nothing was hurt but your pride and your grip, but you really need to work on keeping your gun out reach of dogs and children! It happened and there is nothing that can be done about the past, but you need to pay attention to "the particulars" and prevent something worse happening in the future.
Hope you are able to get your gun straight. Take care and BE SAFE!

How do you people know he has children? I do not have kids and Ive been guilty of leaving an unloaded gun on the coffee table if im messing with it or cleaning it while watching tv or something. Loaded weapons are a totally different story but never did this guy say it was loaded. My pit knows exactly what she can chew and what she cant so this never even dawned on my as in issue lol. All Im saying is he put this up to share his story, not have you guys read him the riot act on something you dont know the details of.

Like the "chewed up grip mod" added any value. Chopping the grip wont lower it from where he's at now.

I would take the lower to a plastic welder guy and just have him patch it all up then I would just dremel it back to where I wanted it. Piece of cake!

Depends on the guns use and how you carry. A shorter grip can be more concealable all while having a longer sight picture.

As another poster mentioned, resale value has already taken a hit if it's chewed up.

I like ugly guns and I think you'd be showing some major character and class shooting a chewed up Glock.
