The Glock Guy

On July 25th I posted a photo of a Glock grip. This was a personal gun of Steve Johnson at Hornady and is the best feeling Glock I’ve ever fired. (I carried a Glock 22 or 23 for 13 years and hated it.)

Steve advised that this customization was the work of Don Ellis, also know as The Glock Guy. In addition to the grip work, Ellis fixed the trigger too. I’m telling ya, I’m not a Glock fan but I liked this one!

    Did he do the peening by hand?! My wife has a .357 Sig Glock and the handgrip was too small and hard to hold, but adding a clip extender did the trick. Now we can both handle it easily. Not sure I could bring myself to let someone peen the handle…but I bet it does improve the grip.

    It looks like the work on the Glock grip was done with a soldering iron. Just guessing.
