    I'll let the pictures do the talking, they can explain the process better than I can.

    We started this project with a beater glock 22 police trade in, This has been one of our "beaters" for a while. You know, the type of glock that you throw down range or shoot at to piss off the glock fan boys :lol: glock hat, shirt, range bag, lanyard, tattoo........pocket protector, bumper sticker.... you know the type. Great office manager, not so good soldier of fortune......

    im pretty sure that the entire purpose was to cut it down to sub-compact length on the handle. basically make the handle end short for easier concealability? i guess. i dunno. that doesnt really make sense to me why you would do that though. that is sacrilege right there.

    They were my late grand fathers. That "work area" is pretty much junk storage right now. It used to be a finished basement, we started a remodel then my grand father died and grandmother got alzhimers and moved in with us. We had to clean her house out to rent it. We tossed out what we could but alot of stuff ended up in the basement. Slowly sorting it all but it takes time.

    No excuse for the bench except lazyness, its where everything gets tossed.

    ANYWAY.....It's not like it's a foreign concept.

    It's to make the pistol more concealable. The full size slide provides a longer sight radius, slower cycling speeds, and makes the pistol able to accept any .40 cal Glock mag I can lay my hands on. It's the grip that prints, not the size of the slide. I could do the same chop to a 17L and I could still conceal it IWB just as well as the 26 or 27. There is NO downside to a chop unless you're anally concerned about capacity and even then you can ALWAYS keep glock 22 mags as your spare mags.

    I can wear this pistol IWB and not print even with a tight shirt using glock 27 mags.

    I got some range time this morning with this pistol and my 27, its hands down a better pistol.

    People cut these guns down all the time, this is nothing new, google it......

    Aside from the fact that glocks are ugly (in my opinion) why all the hatred for them? They go bang when you pull the trigger, and seem to be reasonably accurate. IS it the gun itself, their owners, or something else?

    A glock is good at what it does, there tough and dead reliable.

    I believe alot of the glock haters truly want one but cant afford one;)

    Cheers for the info cooper , learned something there eh ,

    my dislike for glocks comes from a dislike of plastics as a material for guns other than in incidental roles ( grips , stocks etc) , thats all .. i like the designs, they function as spece'd but when they start playing up and its not a metal item , throw it away , you'll just be fixing it over and over , the MGB of the handgun world ... that said i've had 2 MG's so wont bag anyone for choosing a glock , just would not really choose one for me .. at least the MG's where metal ..

    and yes they are not the first late 70's POS they used to be , but my concern about plastics stays , sorry all brands not just Glock ..

    Although not a fan of Glocks, I do appreciate the detailed pics and info on what you're doing. Good stuff to know if you're a Glock fan. The only thing I'd recommend is putting it in the vise instead of your left hand while doing the knife trimming; probably steadier and safer.

    Kudos,

    I dont think a glock is compairable with a MG. I was a BMW tech for years and worked on my share of MG's that came through the dealer. tempermental little cars.

    A glock is one TOUGH pistol, the chop glock has been shot 3 times with a .22 once in the frame. Weve even shot a 19 with a 10mm and it STILL functioned. A friend of mine shot one several times with a 12g and once with a 7.62x39. The x39 round hit the barrel and cracked it along with breaking the trigger. They replaced the trigger and the barrel and the gun ran FINE, no damage to the frame. We run out glocks HARD and only had one fail because of dirt, We urinated on it and it functioned fine after it was "washed" out.

    I've got videos on youtube that would make a glock purist cry.

    Besides a occasional KABOOM(usually related to unspported barrels in the 40 with the use of reloads) I've never seen a glock fail.

    IF you destroy your frame somehow you can send the pistol to glock and they will replace your frame and upgrade it to the newest model.

    I'm not a huge glock fan boy, I think there ugly and they lack the class of something like a 1911. I carry them inplace of my old 1911's because IMHO its a much safer pistol to carry.

    How common are glocks down there?
