Have been having lots of fun with my little CPM-1 .22 CO2 pistol, recently purchased from Raman @ CSS. Only thing I don't really like about it is the bulky oversized grip which is neither aesthetically pleasing or ergonomic to use (IMHO). Decided to take my spindle sander to it for a few modifications ....... being a hardwood, beech I think, it was a PITA to sand down, but with enough time and patience I ground her down to something more comfortable to use. Rounded off a few of the hard angles as well, which softened the overall look. Being a hardwood, even sanded bare this material doesn't take stain very well at all, so to get a dark finish, I used a satin stain/sealer all-in-one and gave it three coats of dark walnut. Mounted everything up again and here is the result ........ what do you think? I may attack my PP800 Grip as well on a rainy day, when I have some time on my hands.

Cheers!

Thanks everyone -this was an interesting project.

It's not actually an optic Rocket, it's a green laser sight. https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B01LPI ... UTF8&psc=1
