    Does anyone know where I can get a grip reduction done in the DFW area?

    I don't think you can just grind down the Glock hump. If you do that, you end up with a hole in the back of your frame, since the rear portion of the Glock frame is hollow. You're going to have to fill that void with epoxy, or something like that before you grind it down, and then follow up with a nice stipple job.

    Youll need to add epoxy to the grip hole. Make sure you properly tape off internal holes, or you ruined your gun. You can dye the filler with graphite powder. Let dry for 24-48 hours, then carefully begin taking material away.

    The grind/fill with epoxy isn't the best solution. Eventually the epoxy is going to separate and leave the gun. They are frequently accompanied by bed liner over the top, which has the same problems as epoxy adhering to polymer long-term, the bonds are poor against shock and impact. It looks sloppy because it is.

    Look for someone who does a good heat reduction. Cold Bore Solutions is one that is in TX. The priority should be getting a quality service, not who's closest.

    I've seen "bondo" jobs by several companies go TU, haven't seen any issues with the good heat reductions yet.

    If it's just the shape you dislike I suggest trying a Grip-Force Adapter first. I love mine and it saves a fair amount of money on gunsmithing.
