Drilling the trigger guard?

Can you guys give me any advice on drilling the guard for a vert asa?

Use metal drill bits, lubricant, clamps/vices, and drill steady/slow.
there are two holes already in it? you can get a stock vertical ASA direct from CCI? it is not quite vertical, but angled back slightly. can you describe what you are doing more? the DT1 U/C kit has a custom vertical ASA.

In the world I see - you are stalking elk through the damp canyon forests around the ruins of Rockefeller Center. You'll wear leather clothes that will last you the rest of your life. You'll climb the wrist-thick kudzu vines that wrap the Sears Tower. And when you look down, you'll see tiny figures pounding corn, laying strips of venison on the empty car pool lane of some abandoned superhighway.

I guess I should have gave more details. I bought a old unibody and did a body swap on it. Now I'm wanting to switch it over to vsc.

Have you thought about putting a 45 grip frame on there instead and running a bottom line or island style (bottom asa opening forwards to the front of the gun) instead?

Drilling and getting the correct hole spacing for a vertical asa may be more pain than it's worth. Just a thought.

you could even pull it off with a hand drill and bit. use some masking tape over the area to be drilled and mark off centers. go slow and steady.

the holes appear to be 5/16" to me, but someone with calipers may be able to give you a better reading on that.

the holes are not threaded or particularly precise. should be no problem for a garage-mod. But then again, I chop down automag rails and bodies with diamond cut-off wheels and a dremel.
