CPM: This is the nicest reduction/chop job on YT by far but that external safety
is questionable at best.
CPM: Why store ur gun unloaded??
Alan Lias: Love it!
Draco Masters: Very cool, except for the external safety. I don't understand why people
are so afraid of not having an external safety on a semi-auto pistol, when
people have carried double action revolvers for decades.
Jtgarner07: When you chopped the grip did you use an aftermarket grip sleeve to fill
the space on the full size mags or did you use the leftover part that you
chopped off? I am interested in doing this but I would also like the full
size feel without the gap when i use full size mags (ok so I know you are
using compact and sub-compact size mags but I would be using full and
compact size mags because I have a G22, hence the possible confusion in my
word choice above)
Rossm812: Accessory Rail
Charlie Jones: Damn you did a kickass job
dakine425: Great job on the video, Dale does do great work. I'm sending my Glock 19 in
to get rid of the hump. What texture did you choose? Also good info on the
slide release, didn't know there was a match grade type made.
Philip Ramirez: Nice safe...
eldogg4life .: Nice!!! Dale's website doesn't show the cost of the grip chop so I wanted
to know if you recalled the pricing. Thx
Gary Gutierrez: I like it...nice job, I could not do it to my 23 though I have had it too
long and I shoot well enough with it as it is. Never liked an electronic
gun safe, with my luck the battery would bitch out right when I need it. I
also don't have kids or a pet monkey so I can keep mine in a matress
Airborne80: Nice video. How much did that safe run you and where did you get it? I like
rolling9657: Why not just get a G27!
jkeys251: That looks like very good work. I wouldn't choose those mods for myself but
they are well done.
Mr1bigsexy: you should have just got a 27 dummy,who needs a rail on a compact?if you
put a bulky light on it its not a compact anymore,its to hard to conceal
patman0455: I like them because they offer the best of both worlds for daytime and
night time sight picture. Some people argue that FO sights are fragile and
break easily, but I find that these having been shrouded, are pretty tough.
I have no problems with them. I don't even fear breaking them with normal
MrUtubegunner: @Mr1bigsexy guess thats why xd 40s arent very popular...who would want a
light on there gun on the nightstand?
tacdriver22mk2: pritty cool ill give u 600 for it ha ha jk ill bet that is ur pride and joy
u look at it and reminice thats what i did to my ruger mk II tricked it
made it my own good work and congrats
patman0455: @jaundibalm ,mostly because I really enjoy tinkering and customization. I'm
an engineer by profession, and always tend to analyze and tinker with
everything. It's what makes me happy. Another hobby...
Maxwelshouse1: Thank you very much for your time and response.
MrUtubegunner: @1TacticalMedic SIDERLOCK...check there site
90foxfreak: Thumbs up on everything except the external safety! There no need for it.
tronclay: you can take stock sub compact mags for regular carrying and keep a sleeved
19 or even 17 mag as a spare, you get a whole slew of new options when you
do this mod plus you get the longer sight radius of the 19 and the
accessory rail. Dont be a fag about it.
adalynn111209: external safety? why even own a glock, buy a smith if u need a manual safety
nio619: i'm in the navy and we use the 9mm beretta so im already use to the
external thumb safety. ill be getting a glock 23 here shortly and will be
going with the cominolli safety. I fell in love with the styling of the
glock. the only thing i didnt like though was the fact that glocks do not
have an external thumb safety and luckily for me i found a way to get a
thumb safety put on. so a glock 23 will defintely be my first handgun for
home defense. thought?
Andy Martin: Dude, great looking 23. I would like to connect with the guy that did
shortening of the frame. I really like that
hathcocked: Very nice. I am considering a grip reduction but I might wait and see what
the Gen 4 Glocks look like first.
AndrejPetro: I did not have a chance to go through all the comments, so I apologize if I
have repeated this question. Did Dale Hunnicutt also do the grip chop also,
or just the reduction?
jaykbrake: Great vid. Can you give the specifics of the external safety, and where
purchased? I am waiting for my 27 to come in, and would like to add the
extra safey to my weapon.
Mike Smith: While Glock is the SAFEST firearms with built in safeties (NEVER)
accidental dischargers to date the external safety is SUPER and EVEN looks
great! Glad you feel comfortable with those mods! Glock is excellent and
never let me down in 20 years under HEAVY usage and dirty. Not the
prettiest gun, like a SIG SAUER P, so what!
Nicho2177: I have never seen an external safety on a glock thats pretty interesting.
You kept refering to the slide lock you replaced that marked the barrel up
and gave you better patterns but you were pointing to the take down levers.
Were you speaking of the actual locking block??
Ronald3570: you pretty much turned it into a glock 27 with a rail haha. not counting in
the safety of course.
patman0455: @ABorell12 - You could technically just take a saw to it, BUT... I wouldn't
do that. The best thing to do is look at a "Stock" Glock 23, and the way a
magazine fits. The idea is to create an identical shape to the Glock 23. I
would first cut it a little bigger, and then CAREFULLY shape it with a
Dremel tool. It takes a lot of patience if you are going to do it yourself,
and make it look "Right". My grip is identical (in shape, minus a back
strap) to a Glock 27.
tfineis: Can you hit a torso sized target at 100 yards?
tysonb209: @mrtrayblizz I was thinking the exact same thing
Tacoma78: Anyone know if CW9 mags would fit the PM9?
MrMiltheman: why did you chop it if your going to use grip extensions.
1TacticalMedic: Can you do the aftermarket Safety on a Glock 19? How much was it?
patman0455: @MrMiltheman - I can conceal it easier like a 27 (No printing), but also
use a grip extension later if I want comfort. The best of both worlds. I
didn't buy a 27 because it didn't have accessory rails.
patman0455: @Redcaster916 - Yeah, I love it. I'm glad I did it. I have all the
confidence in the internal mechanisms, but I like the idea of safety
insurance. Just my preference...
Jackal's Outdoor Channel: @Lonewolf6565 Sorry I replied to the wrong post. Mate see above re why the
external safety is desired.
Lonewolf6565: @AusJackal why are you guys so paranoid of guys with no safety selector.
just dont pull the trigger and it wont go off... glocks will also never go
off if you drop them.
Jackal's Outdoor Channel: I carry a M23 @ work and one thing I don't like about it is the absence of
an external safety. I like yours. Where did you source the modified frame
Diesel Tactical: How do you like the plus 1 mag extention? I just ordered 2 pearce's from
cheaper than dirt. I have a G27.
Bradley Melnyk: when i first starting watching i thought this was a 26, but then i saw u
had a handle reduction lol boy im glad i didnt open my mouth until i watched
Jtgarner07: @patman0455 - Ok yeah I have seen those sleeves but I also saw the texture
on your sleeve and that is why I wondered. Thanks for the info I might be
trying this soon.
Chris Rider: you actually mentioned two things that i haven't seen out of the hundreds
of glock vids ive watched. good video.
scottmercado: I like how you have a G23 w/ a 27 grip. I always imagined that to be the
ultimate CCW. Awesome.
Glenn Lachance: I DO THE SAME STUFF TO MY GUNS. I THOUGHT I WAS THE ONLY ONE HAVING
PROBLEMS WITH THE GLOCK TRIGGER GUARDS. BUT I DO MY OWN CHANGES, MAY NOT
LOOK AS GOOD BUT JUST COST ME SOME MATERIALS, BUT I WOULD NEVER TACKLE
SHORTENING THE GRIP. PAST MY SKILLS BUT GREAT IDEAS. THANKS. SEMPER FI.
