X5 Legion grip modifications

Recommended Posts

 

Wondering how everyone is treating the notches left on the grip when the magwell is removed? I won’t bring using the magwell ever so should I just dremel out the magwell or just leave them?

I left mine alone and ended up having Alma Cole do a custom one off build up and silocon/grit job and this rendered the magwell usage impossible.

This is what I do to my grip module magwell. After dremeling, there is a slight divot left, I fill it with epoxy and sand it flat.

So removing the notches seems to be the norm. Any advice on the process would be appreciated. I’d prefer to not have to replace it after I screw it up.

I left mine alone for the most part.  I did lightly file a couple spots.

Do you have any photos of how Alma shaped your grip?

I am going to shoot with Grip Tape for a while to decide if I need to modifying the shape before doing the silicon carbide.

Did you dremel down (reduce) the grip any?  What epoxy did you use?  Looks great!

Thanks! As stated above. I didn’t do the grip work. Alma Cole did. It’s amazing

Grip tape and filed little bit out of the opening for the mags. I can still use the magwell if I want.

Job weld is what most people use.

I use course grip out of a harbor freight  kit.

I've done 5or6 out of it.

Use an. 125 ball type bit and dremelan outline, sand it de grease it several times

Good to go

I am currently running grip tape, I am scared to use a dremel on my grip being it is $200+ to replace it

 

I have the JB Weld, 60 and 80 grit silicone carbide and all the necessary tools.  I only lack courage 😟

Its It's actually hard to screw it up.

Short of dremeling thru the grip.

Even that jb weld would fix that.

Go for it

Practice on AR15 grips. They are cheap.
