    Very, very nice! :cool:

    Did you cut it before sanding, or just sand it down from the beginning with the Dremel?

    Wow that looks amazing, I'd also be interested in knowing if/what sand paper you used to finish it off. Very sharp looking indeed

    Nothing like a plastic gun for ease of modification. A pocket knife and a hot needle and yer in...

    I guess they have a place in the gun society. Just haven't figured out where.

    off-line mostly.
    That looks great.
    You did a very professional job on her.

    I just hope that the rounded trigger-guard doesn't cause the gun to "ride loose" in certain holsters designed for Glocks.

    Nice work! I've always felt the Glock could benefit from losing some of the blockiness that was so popular in the 80's.

    To each his own. I kind of like its Glockiness... I mean blockiness.

    I'm not a Glock fan but that looks much better.

    Good job!

    Way to go Smitty.

    My Glock 26 has a grip reduction done by Bowie Tactical Concepts and it also has the trigger guard rounded.

    I've never cared for the hooked guard on any handgun.

    So you did a real good job! Keep it up.

    Purchased used, the previous owner said that the rounding was done by Robar.

    Hooked trigger guards went out of style with the big hair of the 80's!

    Good job, sir. Almost makes me want a Glock. I wish they were still available without the finger grooves like yours.

    Wow, Smitty, that looks as clean and professional as the grip you did on the same gun, IIRC.

    Nice work! What's the next project?

    Thanks DFW!

    I am abou to start on a fellow's Gen 3 Glock for a stippling job, rounded triggerguard and mag cutouts.

    He wants the finger grooves left in place, though.

    Then a standard XD 4" after that.

    Smitty,

    I don't suppose you're in the DFW area, are you:)?

    I'd definitely have a project or two for you!

    looking good

    That looks really nice. I've been tempted to do that but am afraid my luck would put me in some hollow void in the plastic of the trigger guard. :scrutiny:

    Great minds do think alike. I got rid of that ridiculous spike on the front of the trigger guard the day I brought it home.

    I appreciate it, guys.

    DFW,

    Unfortunately, no, I am in Alabama (Birmingham).

    Cocked,

    I have run into that before, but guess what? Save the shavings that you grind off the front of the triggerguard, and if you hit a void, those shavings can be melted into the void with a soldering iron, and then smoothed down just like the rest of it!
