2KS trigger guard, Sharp

My trigger guard digs in to the fingers I don't have on the trigger. Has anyone else encoutered this? Seems like edges of the guard are rather crisp. What can be done to round the edges?

Ok, So what I did was, bought some of this (Home Depot $5):

Followed the instructions, dipped it twice and end result was:



You can see the visible signs of the paslti dip are subtle and barely visible unless you are up close with a flash. Should be enough to keep that edge from taking off the skin! It is a psuedo soft plastic coating for hammers and tools, so we will see how it holds up.

Re-done

OK, So ultimately I wasn't completely happy with the results from just adding some plasti-dip, it was a little softer on the fingers, but i continued to have a finger try to slide behind the trigger guard and rub the skin off. I thought it just needed a support beam there to stop that and give my hand the best leverage with the marker when, running, aiming and shooting.

So I bought some Steel Stik from Home depot and moulded a support beam with round edges and an arch for comfort. It probably would have worked fine, just making it straight, but the grips would have to be cut too much without the arch as well.
So here are some pics, remember, I'm not a pro at this, I made it for comfort, with my hands and some sand paper.




Structurally it feels solid, real solid. I havent had a chance to get out with yet, but will update how it goes.
If you have any thoughts or have done anything similar let me know.

Just an update to this mod.

It has held up perfectly.

Yeah, that is my one complaint with that frame. I wish that corner was slanted instead of square, so I could comfortalbly fit a finger behind the frame. My kapp hinge frame on my cocker has that little extra space, which is nice.
