    CZ 75 ASG Aluminum Grips

    I shot some steel with them on and they stayed put. Not too shabby Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Issue Shooting Left

    I have this problem once in awhile and I attribute it to my grip, but haven’t pinpointed it yet. Sometimes after shooting for awhile or when shooting rapid strings, I group left. I relax my grip and focus on my trigger control at the break and just let the gun recoil, and i come right back to center. It still happens, and I’m not sure what I’m doing, but it’s something with my grip pressure. I’m also a righty. I noticed it seems to happen a bit more often on guns with smaller (less width) grips Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    New Franchi Affinity + Parts vs Used Benelli

    Ya but the girth of the oem nut fills the entire void inside the forearm and it can’t budge at all. With these aftermarket nuts, the forearm can pivot down away from the barrel a touch. Just enough to kinda suck Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    New Franchi Affinity + Parts vs Used Benelli

    The extension nut from Nordic allows the forend to move a tiny bit but it’s annoying. I can’t take it anymore. I either have to rig it or replace it. The MOA one looks more true to from of the oem shape which I believe will keep the forend from moving. Can you confirm this? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Amazing work. I went on MOA website and sent a message requesting the new safety. Thanks for sharing! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    New Franchi Affinity + Parts vs Used Benelli

    Nice! It’ll be good for stashing something. I have the compact stock also and I guess I’ll go that route. It’s just I have to add a spacer to get desired lop with that one. Not the worst thing I guess. Don’t want to accidentally trash a perfectly good full size stock Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    CZ 75 ASG Aluminum Grips

    The KJ Works website seems to be Japanese. So your explanation of country of origin determining price point seems to be a reasonable one. Also, the part about them not fitting could very well be the reason they stipulate for Airsoft Gun use only. I believe you are right again. I have to correct you on the Airsoft guns being toys, though, as they are extremely competitive just like sport shooting. They are very expensive, high quality “guns” also. Not that I’m into that stuff lol. I personally use palm swell grips on my CZ Shadow so in essence I wasted money on this, I didn’t save any. I just was very curious about this and whether it could work... maybe I need to find better things to do Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    CZ 75 ASG Aluminum Grips

    I simply placed the grips on the gun and then traced inside with a pencil to get the bottom line. Here’s the problem: the top has to be cut also, because the screw hole is about 1-2/16” low on the ASG grips. I couldn’t see this until AFTER I cut the bottom already. So it’s best to cut the top down FIRST, and then measure for the bottom cut. Or just make a template or measure everything the right way. The way I did it, I was left with a gap on the bottom. So I placed the grips in a clamp and used steel pieces to form a guide for cutting the backs of the grips. Once I had lengthened the notch at the bottom and got the top cut enough for the screw hole to line up, I filed down the remaining metal to flush it up with the recessed part of the grip. Heres what the back looked like By now you must have realized I’m no pro with a dremel. So I think if you have dremel skills, you can do this very well. What would probably be the best way is to make a real template from the back of some other aluminum grips, and make the cuts as precise as possible. I messed up the top part and nicked a tiny groove that is visible in the picture below And here’s the finished grip on the gun. You can see on the bottom I made another little mistake when the carbide cutter ran away on me. The screw hole is lined up perfectly for sure. Once they’re on the gun (especially if you do a better job than I did with the dremel) these grips seem to be no different than the ones made by CZC, except I’m not sure if theylll allow room for a decocker lever to be pushed down. May only be for safety models. Takeaways from this little art project: 1) the screw holes do NOT line up. If you measure from the top recess to the screw hole you will see the very small difference. The grips have to cut on the top to allow them to fit high enough. Take this into consideration when planning 2) one mistake with the dremel can reduce the $35 grips to scrap. Must go slow and be precise, and should not even attempt this unless one has good dremel skills 3) the grips are solid, grippy, and the finish looks great! I don’t see any difference whatsoever between these and CZC grips, and cannot explain why these are only $35. Either they are losing money on these, or CZC is making huge profit margin. The value is definitely there imo. 4) these grips are for Airsoft guns ONLY... I don’t yet know why... I can’t really recommend doing this, since for some reason you aren’t supposed to Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
