Well for those who own one of these cool little guns I'm sure you can attest that the grip on these are not very comfortable and where made to short "small" for my liking after shooting this gun for a while its a bit uncomfortable. So I decided to do something about it after looking at some of my paintball parts guns I decided to swap out a grip from a PT-Xtreme very comfy little grip so here is what I did....

P.S. I also decided to polish the hammer,sear,and trigger lever now the trigger is very smooth no more gritty feel to it.

So here is the gun in its original form.
Image

Remove grip frame and cut finger grooves out and file down on an angle.
Image
Image

Next file back of frame to conform to the new grip.
Image

Mock up to see how much more to file down looks like its about there.
Image

Now to fill in the 1" space from the short grip frame.
Image

Used a peace of wood to fill bottom of frame filed it down to fit frame and held in place by drilling two holes and placing two small coat hanger rods
Image
Image
other side
Image

Cut two small sections of wood to place into grip frame and drilled and placed mounting threaded pin so I could mount new grips.
Image
Image

Used some plastic putty similar to JB weld to fill in the gap of wood and frame filed and sanded down.
Image


After it all looked good and I was satisfied with the filing sanding I gave it a coat of flat black enamel paint.
Image
Image
Image

Finished and mounted in place.
Image
Image
Image

After all that work I decided to do some shooting with the new grip design and what a deference a comfortable grip can make here are two targets at 40 feet out semi rested open sights 10 shots on each target with three pumps its now one of my favorite go to guns lol...can't Wait to mount a scope on this thing.

Those are nice looking airguns and they seem to be accurate too!

:shock: ...Excellent work on the grips, Ace! They came out looking great! 8)

Sweet shooter for sure, and accurate too. Is that the one that was for sale here awhile back?

Congrats on a job well done!

Cheers,
Todd

Thanks for the kind words guys i appreciate it. :wink:

Thanks Todd i got the gun from Sniper Dan it was new in the box. 8)

There are two downsides to this gun that Ive noticed one of course is the grip frame the other is the valve seal :(
other than that its one very nice gun very compact and strong. :D

Little update i decided to add a trigger shoe to the not so nice original trigger and it definitely complements the the new grip frame its so very comfy to shoot now. So only one thing left to do to this little beast and thats add a scope rail. :wink:
