Sorry for the late post with the pics. Work has been very busy, and I get home late. Too tired to take pics. And frankly, my pics always SUCK, so maybe I've been intimidated. Ha.
So, I created a PB album and hope this works.
My general use Glock 17 is the green one shown in these pics. It is a Gen2 that I got used about 12 years ago. It came with a .40cal ejector installed, but has never failed. It was beat to snot when I got it and I have continued with the hard use. The green paint is about 5 or 6 years old and shows some wear. The slide shows a lot of wear from being carried in an open muzzle holster in the dez. These pics show a lot of wear and scratches that I left in place when I painted it. They don't look that obvious in person.
The tan 34 is actually one of my Gen1 22's with a G34 top end on it. It has been 100% reliable, too.
The 19 is stock. It is getting Enhanced soon and is used for comparison.
The first pic shows the rounded trigger guards, relieved junction of frontstrap and trigger guard for middle finger clearance and the modified and rounded front straps. Green=smooth. Black=standard. Tan=rounded and sanded. It shows the razor sharp lip at the bottom of the fronstrap gone, too.
Second pic shows the relieved frontstrap from another angle, and if you look closely at the tan frame you can see a flat spot. This is where the side of the trigger finger rubs on the frame.
Third pic shows both the rounded corners of the frontstrap, and the best angle to see the relieved frontstrap/trigger guard junction.
The 4th pic shows the relieved area around the mag button, the rounded edges of the mag button, and the relief inside the bottom edge of the trigger guard. This keeps the finger tip from rubbing and allows the easy use of thin gloves.
Looks like the rest of the pics will need to follow. Don't know how to get them all to post at once. And this Aluma Hyde 2 paint has been on for years and still looks pretty good. It is amazing stuff.
