Since the P08 has a reputation of behind the bad guy gun :!: , I'd say it would be the gun to get :? , but the thing is that this gun does not interest me :cry: .

As for the drilling of the handle, I filled up the back of the grip with car putty then proceed to the drilling. I did use a ''emporte pieces'' (in french) don't know the name in english, but you ca see it on the picture with the tool's. It makes a flat hole and come in different standard size, I used 1/2'' (.500) the earing were .550 so a little dremel was needed. The tickness of the grip was enough so I did not end up in the putty but was pretty close, I guess if I had not put the putty I may of get some problem.

Looks great!!I have some gold medallions coming from ebay and I was wondering if you could drill into the grip with out cracking it?Did you put something behind where you drilled?Sweet!The guy says the colt gold medallions are 2mm in height!They don't have a pin on the back though!


2MM thin is very thin, mine were more like 4 or 5MM thick, I had to go deep so they did stick out to much. On the first pict the drill bit I used makes flat bottom round hole. On the second pict you can see how much it stick's out but for no problem it does not affect my grip at all.

I think this is the one , It is 1/2". The bit cut a grove on the outside of the hole so I went not as deep and dremelled the rest to get the right depth. Also I needed a .550" diameter hole so again I demeled the diameter out also. I will check tomorrow the part number and confirm it. The small hole in the middle is for centering purpose only, when dremeled the nottom flat the center hole disepeared leaving the small hole.

OK, got the tool number, CTC 54-9102.

p/s: did fill the back or the grip with car body filler just in case the plastic is to thin.

I am thinking of sanding the trigger down but on the front of the trigger I have groves that run verticaly down!I'm wondering if they will be affected when doing the trigger?

Sanding them will make them less apparent but will be easy to polish, I don't see any problem. Just sand them verticaly, as easy as that.

I know every body are having nail problem/difficulties/pain because of the difficulty of pulling/holding the follower on the KWC1911 mag when loading the BB's in, so I made myself a little gismo to save mine. Made of a small piece of aluminum. I think picture are better then a thousand word's. That plus a speed loader

A good practice is to keep your thumb on it so it does not release by accident and throw's BB's all over the place.

By the way I will include one in my Black Water 1911 Tac that is in the for sale section.
