    I just had my old school 2nd gen Glock 19 texturized because it's really slick by a new NoVA gunsmith (NoVA needed another great gunsmith) he also undercut the trigger guard so I can get a little higher up on the gun. I felt his aggressive grip and it was a little too rough and would catch on my clothes and eat up my shirts. So I asked for something softer for non-slip but something that wouldn't snag. It turned out great.
    The name of the gunsmith who worked on my Glock 19 is Sam Hatfield (yes like the Hatfield/McCoys!). He did a fantastic job, and turnaround can't be beat. I'm going to have him do a grip reduction on my wifes G19 3rd gen with a grip chop so it'll take Glock 26 mags. M4C member Trio had that done to his G19 2nd gen by Hatfield as well. I saw it when I was dropping mine off.

    Sam Hatfield is located in Manassas VA in Old Town. He's a former US Army AMU gunsmith. I've handed some other stuff he's worked on and he does some incredible work. He specializes in 1911s. He can be reached at 703.369.GUNS or on his website at http://www.hatfieldsgunsmithing.com/

    It's actually pretty soft but non-slip. His aggressive one is much more sharper.

    That's a nice looking grip. I've seen a lot over at GlockTalk and I think this one looks the best.

    Yup I saw Trios 2nd Gen 17 chopped to a 26 today. Very slick, I did a double take when I saw the OP's Glock. I'm thinking about having mine chopped to a 19 size and stippled.

    Has anyone shot one of these chopped down Glocks?

    I'm wondering if the alteration may affect the gun's operation.......just a thought. They look neat though.

    I did the same to mine, and it feels 100% better. Great looking 2nd gen you have!

    I had Sam do my 3rd gen OD Glock 17 as well. It turned out very nice also. The last two pics are what the 2-dot Warren night sights look like.

    To gotm4;

    I'm pretty sure I handled your Glock 17 in the picture last Saturday morning. He has my Glock 23 for some smoothing out of the trigger action. I already have a 3.5 Ghost connector on it, but I would like to have the feel improved a bit. I'll report how it is when I get it back.

    Sorry for the necropost:

    That OD Glock 17 is now famous or infamous depends on how you look at it.

    I used that green Glock 17 in the video "Art of the Tactical Carbine 2" by Magpul Dynamics.

    Can anyone comment on his 1911 work? I've had some 'work' done on mine that I'd like to have re-done, and some additional work performed as well.

    I'll be able to soon. He's putting a flat 10-8 trigger in my Springfield Armory as well as a Novak picatinny light rail and stippling the front strap and under cutting the triggerguard as well as refinishing the frame.

    I've had him do repairs on my 1911s twice with no problems. I like how he explains in detail what he did and observed when you get your gun back from him.

    I heard he was ok. However, one of the best ever is right in Springfield. Robert Garrett at Northern VA Gun Works.
