    Jeebus, that’s about as stupid as it gets! :what: In no way, shape or form does that look like a good idea.

    Stay safe.

    Problem solved by shooting a flintlock. Then it’s only the guy next to you who suffers.

    Looks like something owned by someone with a nickname like Shotfoot.

    Please see thread titled Negligent Discharges. Looks like the poster child for such a thing.

    Back in the day, say 1960's and '70's there was advice offered in the Gun Digest that is a little...hmmm...head scratching. One was to make your Colt Single Action revolvers more accurate, to bend the barrel in a press. Whole article on it. Different Digest, another guy shows how to bend the barrels of shotguns to make them shoot straighter. I kid you not! The days before instant info from the internet.

    Bubba Jr’s favorite Grand Bubba musta wrote that one... I wonder how many otherwise good shotgun barrels ended up with creases from the edge of the vise jaws after that one came out? o_O
    Stay safe.

    Until I saw that train wreck of a Glock this is what I thought of when I heard “thigh blaster”:
    https://www.amazon.com/1UP-1UP15-Thigh-Blaster-Black/dp/B01LXRMI0Q/ref=asc_df_B01LXRMI0Q/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=216493071057&hvpos=1o6&hvnetw=g&hvrand=5007292037675959133&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=m&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9031595&hvtargid=pla-350259815690&psc=1

    Stay safe... and stay far away from that modification!

    Gunsmiths have been doing such stuff for years. Hell, factories do it too. All it takes in the proper equipment.

    I've seen more than a few; most of which are probably not good fodder for a forum, any forum.

    I was established in 1972 so I get what your talking abot however the revolvers you mentioned and then bending the barrel especially for accuracy definitely made my eye brows raise up lol

    My grandfather was in WW2 in Germany and i believe North Africa earlier. From I could remember he carried a SMITH .38 wheel gun everywhere and Everyday and I'm not sure which gund were being bent but definitely not this one i dont believe. When he passed away he left all his WW2 medals like purple heart etc. and his 1958-1962 Smith model .37 Chief Special aluminum air weight

    My brother is one person who loves the quad rail. He has nothing on it.
    I personally hate it and everything besides a small light and a sighting system.

    There's one more thing that I think needs to be added to the Glock, Just finished doing this thing to two of my Glock's. Replace the factory slide lock-the one that's used to remove the slide. It was hard for me to reach to push the factory latch down. No problem with the replacement. Two of my guns have the factory night sights.

    Trigger Point Technology sells a button for your trigger, so that by pressing on the trigger, you can activate a light or laser.

    Anything a seller wants me to pay for for starters. No, I’m not paying for your hot-needle stipple job.


    In high school, my buddy made his Marlin Goose gun fire when he closed the bolt.

    I gotta remember that nobody ever went broke underestimating the taste of the American public. That's usually attributed to H.L.Menchen.

    That describes ceracote jobs to me. Pay $100 to turn a $500 gun into a $300 gun that you ask $600 for.

    The $1600 Glocks on Armslist just make me laugh. The only factory part is the frame, and they’ve mangled it until it’s barely functional. It’s all I can do not to contact the sellers and ask if they are high on crack.

    What could possibly go wrong? o_O

    It's hard for me to imagine that anyone thought that was a good idea, let alone actually took it to market.

    Kinda like bump stocks. What could go wrong? Yes sore subject, but it does apply.

    Terry, I'd add a third thing. A slightly wider slide release. Too many Glocks I've had come through the store requre me to slightly roll the pistol to get good pressure on the OEM slide release. I have an issue with any pistol that I can't drop it into battery from a shooting grip. I know, the solution is to count your shot and pop a fresh mag in with one still in the chamber, but during a serious incident, that's not always possible.
