Grip Reduction on Glocks

OK groaners and moaners not allowed.
How many here have had a grip reduction to their Glocks?
Why did you want or have it done ( curiosity, small hands etc)?
Which Generation Glock?
What model Glock ( 17, 21, 22 etc)?
What did you have done ( ie: texture finish changed, grip reduction etc)?
Who did you use?
Where you satisfied?
Any recommendations concerning grip reductions?

Mine is a 21SF. I took out the big checkering between the finger grooves and rounded the four corners of the grip so that it didn't feel so squarish. My son fine stippled the areas between the finger grooves. He also did an undercut on the trigger guard so that it sits lower in my hand.

I had grip reduction done by glockgripreduction.com on a G19, two G 21's, a G23, G27 & G35.

The G23 and one G21 were Gen 2's the rest were Gen 3's.

I had the finger grooves & back strap hump removed ( more 1911 shaped), trigger guard rounded and under cut, small beaver tail added.

Yes I would do it again. Using the same vendor.

I guess I fit this thread.


I undercut the bottom of the trigger-guard on my G23(3) just to fit the finger groves better. I also took the sharp edge off the bottom of the guard while I was at it and I am very happy with the outcome.


Go slow, check for size often and finish with sandpaper for an OEM look.

Sure thing! Mine's a Robar, but Cold Bore tree bark looks much better than rhino-liner.

Used heat (a candle) to flatten the backstrap on my G19.
Did so because I have little-girl hands.
That g19 fits me now like it was custom-made.

When I get time I'll do the same with my G23.

I did some work to my frame myself. A little of the ol' kitchen gunsmithing if you will..

I double undercut the trigger guard. Took the finger grooves off and made it smooth. Wrapped it in grip tape. I actually cut the large back strap in half at the point where the meat of my hand is still on the back strap itself. (I have small hands) This actually changes the angle of the gun in my hand quite a bit. I'm very, very happy with this right now.

Sorry not exactly the best pic's of the frame but it's all i had at the moment and figured i'd post it so you can get an idea.

  1. I wanted it done because while I always liked my G20s they never pointed naturally for me due to the large grip. btw I wear XL gloves.
  2. Third gen G20
  3. I had the maximum grip reduction, finger humps removed and fully textured.
  4. Lane at Cold Bore Customs did the work.
  5. I am VERY satisfied with the work. It made a range only gun into a carry gun because now it fits my hand so much better and it has a straight backstrap, which I really prefer. Now it points naturally and that is important to me.

Glock 30 with grip reduction done by Boresight Solutions. The sides of grips are done in light to medium stipple and the front and back strap are done in a more aggressive stippling. BSS did a great job all the way around. I would use Ben again.

I really want to try Cold Bore Customs for next Glock grip reduction. It might be a 17 to 19 grip length chop with reduction.
