Custom Work For Glock™ Pistols
ROBAR is now customizing G42 and can install the Vickers Slide Stop and Magazine Release: the Slide Stop and Magazine Release on the G42 (above) are the first samples on a G42.
Glock™. Fit. Form. Function.
The innovative Glock™ pistol revolutionized the handgun industry. Now available in a multitude of configurations and calibers, Glock™ offers something for almost everyone. Robar® truly takes the Glock™ closer to perfection by utilizing our unique process for reducing the grip size on Glock™ pistols in order to better match the size of the grip to the size of our client’s hands. No longer is the shooter with small hands or of smaller stature penalized by the standard Glock™ grip. Additionally, Robar® offers a complete suite of practical grip modifications, magazine extensions, beavertail fabrication, front cocking serrations, trigger work and complete refinishing for all Glock™ models.

The Tri-Fit NEW!
Completely change your Glock™’s grip angle in less than 60 seconds. This kit includes 3 inserts: 1911 style, Sig style, and Original. This is available on Generation 1, 2, 3; on models: 17, 22, 35, 34, 19, 23, 26, and 27. It is not currently offered on any of the Generation 4 Glocks™. Installation is a snap as these inserts are held in by already existing housing pin and easily removed with a pin punch for rapid interchangeability. Your Glock™ will be modified for installation of all 3 inserts. This revolutionary design is available exclusively through Robar®. Our price of $200 includes the modification of the grip and all 3 panels. Available in black only. Please note: This is in addition to our current Glock™ modifications.
The Frontstrap Reduction is an adjunct to our Backstrap Reduction but may also be ordered by itself when only a small amount of grip reduction is desired. We remove material from between the finger grooves, or remove the finger grooves entirely, and texture the resulting area in our ‘Medium’ grit texture. For the maximum amount of grip reduction possible select both the Backstrap Reduction and the Frontstrap Reduction, preferably without the finger grooves as in the picture below.
Robar’s® Backstrap Reduction is the most popular grip reduction offered and usually is sufficient enough of a reduction for 85% of people. We remove the hollow palm swell on the backstrap, fill the area, smooth it over and texture the back and sides in our ‘medium’ grit texture. The result is a straight grip angle and a smaller, more manageable grip size. If you shoot high with a conventional Glock™ grip you will right on target after the reduction. Texture is not applied to the frontstrap as part of the backstrap reduction but may be optionally requested if desired. Texturing the frontstrap does not reduce the size – if you want more reduction then select our ‘Frontstrap Reduction’. Our texture may also be specified as ‘Light’ if you prefer a finer grit similar to the original Glock™ texture, or ‘Heavy’ if you need maximum grip for damp and wet working environments.
Grip Texture Only
If you don’t require any grip reduction but would prefer a more aggressive texture, select our Grip Texture service. We texture the entire grip with our ‘Medium’ grit texture, also available in our ‘Light’ and ‘Heavy’ grits to suit your personal requirements. Texture can also be selectively applied to specific areas of the grip as required. Typically we leave the Glock™ logo and part number panels intact but these too may be covered if so desired – just be sure to request that when ordering. Similarly, matching texture can also be applied to magazine base pads and magazine spacers.
High Grip Modification
We remove material from the bottom of the trigger guard at the point where it joins the frontstrap. This allows you to get you hand up slightly higher on the grip, lowering the bore of the pistol for reduced recoil while offering improved control.
Adding a Beavertail
For our customers with larger hands who are suffering slide bite we offer our Beavertail Fabrication package. A steel reinforced beavertail is expertly fabricated to the rear of the frame, shaped and smoothed to perfection and finished to look like it was there from the factory. The beavertail not only protects your hand from slide bite, it also helps position your hand on the grip for a faster, smoother draw from your holster, particularly important for competition shooters.
Forward Cocking Serrations
The Glock™ slide does not offer forward cocking serrations. We now offer you the choice. We will add forward serrations that match the size and angle of the rear serrations on your Glock™ slide, essential for safe press checking of the chamber. Our standard serrations, as shown in the pictures on this page, do not remove the Glock™ logo and model number from the left hand side of the slide. However, you can request complete serrations at no extra charge should you wish to remove the factory markings – just be sure to specify when ordering if you want the markings removed. Obviously, when the serrations are cut into the slide we expose bare base metal which will require some form of metal finishing to prevent corrosion. We suggest our premium NP3 Plus, NP3, Poly-T2 or Roguard coatings which can be applied to the slide only or, you can optionally select our ‘Norton Special’ package, which will metal finish your slide, barrel, all internal parts of the slide and all appropriate internal metal parts of the frame.
Grip Shortening Package
This package offers you the convenience of using both high capacity and subcompact magazines in your standard frame Glock™ pistol. We combine a backstrap and frontstrap reduction with grip shortening and texturing to enable a Glock™ 21, for example, to use Glock™ 30 compact magazines. The section of grip we remove from the pistol is permanently attached to a full size magazine, textured to match. Now, you have a truly convertible system giving you the best of both worlds depending on your requirements.
