Customs by Bowie Tactical Concepts

Post by Piero on Wed 30 Dec 2009 - 16:15

One of the pictures I posted in the "Girls with Guns" thread recently included an image of a school girl with a rather unusual Glock. The original pages that the image was cropped from described the weapon as a "Bowie Tactical Concept: Glock 17 Custom." So I decided to do a little snooping around online.



Turns out Bowie Tactical Concepts is a company that specialises in making ergonomic improvements to polymer framed handguns in general, and, from the looks of things, Glocks in particular. Supposeclly most of the work reshaping and retexturing the grips is done by hand, which probably explains why the work is so expensive. Those grip modifying jobs look like a ton of work!

Some examples of the company's work can be found here:

Or for that matter, with what appears to be a 70's woodgrain finish

Pretty cool though, pity I'm not a big fan of Glocks

You're not a gunsmith in today's market unless you can do a quality grip job. Dan Burwell (http://www.burwellgunsmithing.com) is considered by most to be the Smith M&P guru.

Not only does he do grips (back-straps, front-straps, and thumb rests), but does an incredible "melt" job to smooth out the M&P's sharp lines. He also can get the trigger down to a weight that puts it in with custom 1911's. Check out his gallery here: http://www.burwellgunsmithing.com/gallery.htm

I have personally met ten people who have had him work on their guns, and all of them are incredibly satisfied. His prices aren't bad either.

Glocks are not the shit. Glocks can fail the same as any other gun. I've seen it personally, and have even heard first-hand accounts of something as basic as a slide-retaining pin snapping, the slide flying off. Get over the obsession and buy what fits your hand, your wallet, and ability.
