Gun Review: Race Glock – building bigger with Grey Poupon

It seems that no matter what you do, someone is always complaining about looks like there is a mandatory art appreciation class given to all mall ninjas to get their CCW sash. I ask Fred, “is there any way to please all the ladies?” Fred hangs outside of Walgreens, bums cigarettes from passers by and advises on life between puffs of smoke.

I started with assemlbing Marigold-1 kit, and flared the mag well. This will accept any G17/22/31/34/35 slide and will send a bullet into enemy’s body to pierce and destroy tissue as it would from any other Glock. But is not look good for people, it is “crude” and must be inferior?


First step to solution is to either get hard or to get wood, or just hard wood. That’s what Fred says. Also, once you get wal-nut, back you go not!


Wood can get shaped by hands or by mill, just enough to fit the frame.


Apply glue of choice and let dry. Then shape some more. The smaller hands you have, the harder you have to work.


Since metal parts are exposed, I decided to paint them with truck bed liner paint for truck beds to line them.


Is good paint, durable and strong. I wish it come in different black though, not shiny or not happy black, but more solemn or angry black colour.


As part of the build, few things were made custom to accomodate my freakishly big hands. Mag release was filed from scrap steel to make it useful again.


It comes out longer and stronger than ever.


Also slide catch needs to be bigger too.


Because stock slide catch spring could not handle the increased girth, I use a magnet to keep it down instead of spring.


Over breakfast I wanted to paint so called “Shelby racing stripe” over the pistol with Grey Poupon to make it “faster”, but changed my mind.


Cat prefers the look of G17 slide instead of G34.


I finally had to uglify this pistol with useless accessory: dust shield


Now Igor demonstrate:

One cat was mostly ignored during making of this build.

    This is actually kind of awesome. That walnut grip is gorgeous, even if entirely weird. What’s up with your freakish freak hands anyway? XD

    I like manly writing style. Is good!

    • Anonymoose

      I wonder if he’s related to IVAN?

  • UD

    I really enjoyed this.

  • Best article ever. Next review from me will have a cat/gun combo pic. Yep, I just brought it.

  • Vhyrus

    This article is much better if you read it with Borat narrating in your head.

  • Frosty_The_White_Man

    Now this is fab.

    Boris is internet-famous again!

    In the beginning, I was wondering what exactly this article was going for…. but in the end it all made sense.

    I think it would have looked even better if the wooden stock was extended all the way along the slide… or perhaps somehow having a wooden “forestock’, as it were… would have made it look… “Blade-Runner-y”.

      Ooooooh nice idea.

  • hami

    A great article from a very funny and obviously very talented guy. More please!

  • Daniel E. Watters

    The next logical step would be to create a stamped/folded slide with pinned-in breechblock like the original SIG-Sauer P220-series.

  • Blake

    Nice article.

    I must ask: what’s with the mustard?

  • Nicholas Mew

    Shout to the cat.

  • DiverEngrSL17K

    Funny, informative and a great showcase for Boris’ obvious firearms-building talents — great job with the “Glock”.

    By the way, Boris — you have a beautiful and obviously very patient cat who also likes to be there to “help” :).

  • JumpIf NotZero

    Interesting build and write up, but annoying and hard to read writing.

    Step away from the gimmicks please.

  • Gunhead

    Is Boris related to Ivan Chesnokov?

  • Graham Ringer

    that has to be one of the ugliest guns I have ever seen but, very interesting build and article.

  • the_duck

    Fantastic article, love everything about it!

  • MaryK Kirk

    Love the article, and the kitty too.
