This was my weekend project.






I am thinking of finishing the palm rest in Plasti-Dip to give it some grip. Either that or some kind of flat black. Couldn't find the dye today to save my life.

If you mean the tiny spring that pushes the ball detent out on top of the mag?

Yes, that's what I was talking about. I was trying to be careful when I opened it, but it still popped open on me. Now I need to find that spring. I don't suppose anyone has a pic of one?
Edit: well, it looks like it got vacuumed. Any chance I can grab a replacement from a hardware store? If not, I'll just use that mag as the one I start loaded into the hammer.

I used Alumilite's Amazing Casting Resin. It's hard as a rock, sands nice, taps really well. Working it as a lot like working with MDF. The resin is easy to mix; and the viscosity is low enough that it pours damn near like water. This stuff is slick!

I'll do a picture how-to in the Kingman section. I took a bunch of pictures.

Hey Dan is that one of those Hogue wrap around front strap sleeve things. The ones that the panels go over the sides of? Does it fit Ok without that gap in the front everyone is complaining about?

It's part of the Pachmayr Signature grip. There is still a bit of space in there; due to the pinky shelf on the grip. It wouldn't allow the grips to be stretched back any more (actually, they are back as far as would look right anyways).

I ended up taking up the space with two pieces of tounge depressors/popsicle sticks. It comes out to roughly 1/8", which is a little too much (you can see the bulge it causes right below the trigger guard and right above the pinky shelf). I'll find something plastic to make the final piece, just so it stays water proof.

Gotcha gotcha. Yeah Hogue has some sorta insert thingy basically same thing. But if there's still that gap I probably won't bother. I'll just start with Hogue panels and go from there I think it will be satisfactory though but thanks for the info. Mcb is in rare form with this marker. I wouldn't be surprised if u see a sergy frame on there within the month lol
