Hello all,

I like Glocks durability and reliability, but hate the grip angle, so I'm looking to get a grip reduction on my Glock 27; which I use as a backup..... Anyone has experience with gripreduction.com, their work looks good and they have reasonable prices and turnaround times..... Thanks in advance for any suggestions or advice.....

No knowledge of those guys.... I've seen a few different ones and done a few myself, in a somewhat different way, that was about 4X the cost and not better. Mostly I've see the Robar job and they seem fine and very reasonable. I think Brownell's has a kit for DIY Glock grip reductions......

I second Robar...they did a couple for me in the 90's that were very nicely done...

El June.....if you look around in here using the search, there are also some very nice Glocks done by Dave Sams...VERY nice ones! Al Shear has one or two of these and I had the pleasure of handling one of them a couple of years ago (G-23 I think?). I was always impressed by the Robar packages too....but after the Sams Custom ones...I just gotta have one of those first!

Don't leave out Bowie Tactical. His work looks very good.

Thanks to all for the advice, I ended up sending it to gripreductions.... I did some research on the web and found very positive feedback to go with their very reasonable prices and turnaround time.... Sent the pistol out and had it back in a week..... Here are the results:

Wow, that doesn't look half bad as I thought it would be. For the price they really did a good job. Thanks for sharing.

I do agree with previous responses, Robar is a proven company with excellent results.
My G19 and G17 fit those results.

Kent Singletary from kscustom does great Glock reduction work and he was Robars head gunsmith before going full time on his own.

+1. Lane has stippled my G19 and PPQ, and I could not be happier.
