Can someone tell me how to "de horn" a glock?
Ah, you don't.
Why do you ask?
With a file.
Where did you find horns on a Glock? Seriously. . .
"de-horning" is a term used to describe the process of smoothing all the sharp contours on a pistol to make it easier to present from a holster when needed or to make it more comfortable to carry.
what makes you think a Glock needs de-horning?
I KNEW IT!!!!
GLOCKS are the spawn of the devil.
Don't de-horn anything! Being horny is something you miss allot when growing older and I know
CB. .. Help us understand. We are sitting here with a stupid look . . Well at least I am.
There are no sharp corners on a Glock to dehorn.
Ah.... I see ... so what's up with the question.
Damnit I really wish I could have posted that....
A axe said for carry! The corner on the trigger guard is what I'm referring to!
Oh you must be a 1911 guy.
The front of the trigger guard it may not stab you but it has a sharp corner.
You don't know me very well do you? I've carried a Glock everyday on duty and off duty for the past 8 years. I'm a certified Glock armorer. My company specializes in Glock upgrades and modifications. There are no sharp edges on a Glock. To "dehorn" a Glock would imply to smooth the corners on the slide to ease with the holstering of the gun. Smoothing the front of the trigger guard is "smoothing the front of the trigger guard" not "dehorning a Glock".
It also compromises the finish if you were to do it. Not the best idea.
Finally! I have been sitting on pins and needles (it's not just for fun anymore) waiting to know. I once again have a smile on my face. A stupid smile, but a smile nonetheless.
If I were to do this I would use an exacto snap saw, and my copious collection of files. I might stipple / checker to match. All while having access to a nice vice and engineering square, and a pseudo-French-curve kinda thing.
I would also know that resale value might be affected, although it wouldn't bother me.
I could expect that I would not like the result and I can't reverse it.
I could expect that something inside, like a void or fiber might be exposed.
I would also be aware that I could botch it and end up with a Fitz Special
Nothing would say "Glock Leg" more than a Fitz on a Glock.
Saltpeter or Rosie O'donnel pictures perhaps?
that is covered by the holster if you carry. it doesn't really need to be "de-horned".
most part, many pistols are "de-horned" for purely cosmetic reasons, because it looks good. most modern pistols are already pretty smooth for holster carry from the factory.
True cosmetically I would like it much better, but I can feel the corner on my holster as Unholster it. I guess everybody's different.
