After a lot of (very fun) shopping, I bought a Mod 2 .40 this summer. I just finished modding the grip and decided it was time to stop lurking.so I could share (AKA show it off!). It was a fun project, but I'm glad it's over so I can go back to actually shooting the gun!

Nice choice..

However...

Zone B has been disfigured. Did you check your ZONES before picking it up? I'm not sure what happened... but it appears someone took a mold of my ex's stomach and intentionally transferred the cesarean print pattern to your ZONE B.

I'd call Springfield.. or the cops. You may have a potential burger planning an attack on your compound, knowing that when he strikes... you won't know where to grab the damn gun.

@BetsyB, please excuse @Minkman555...he is our resident Grip Zone satirist who has even gained notoriety with Springfield Armory Staff :D good stuff

@Minkman555, yes, I filled out the manufacturer's application (in triplicate) for special zoning dispensation, which is available to persons who meet certain (top secret and highly doubtful) criteria.

@R3dbull4dd1kt, thanks for the warning- people sometimes mistake my smart-ass remarks for snarkiness, too. Conveying sarcasm online requires special skills, but apparently Minkman555 possesses those (in triplicate).
Nice to know I'm not alone in my grip-zone gripes.

Yeah, you seem like you'll fit in just fine 'round here. Welcome aboard.
How did you obliterate the Grip Zone with such artistry? That's pretty impessive.

Don't fear the goats. They're mostly harmless and if ya haven't been goated, well...yer just not trying hard enough. :)

The short answer is "epoxy clay and experience." The long answer is, well, long. I'm putting a DIY on my website, I'll post a link here if anyone's interested.

AND what's up with the goats, goat farm, etc? If there's a relevant acronym, I'm missing it, and goat has several meanings in my neck of the woods.

Ahhh..... @BetsyB I didn't know anyone on this forum (of course, besides me.) actually went through the zone modification procession application with Springfield... I honestly am quite happy to see such a custom modification (SANCTIONED modification.) of Zone B... it looks great, and my the grip be with you.

(PS: The feather (in all seriousness) looks great how the hell did you pull it off?.)

We release the goats when posts or threads get out of hand or go full-retard.
Thanks for the reply- that's what I was getting from context, but I didn't want to embarrass myself (more than usual!)

I put a DIY on my website, which is probably way too much information for you, but - short version- I used epoxy clay to fill you-know-what, then added more clay for sculpting the feather and plain patch on the other side. It worked out great- the flat patch fits my right (dominant) palm perfectly, and the feather falls neatly between my fingertips and the base of my palm. I'm extremely happy with the results- I'm thinking of doing another one, whether there's a stupid logo on it or not!

Link, if you're interested in the TMI version :)
