You got more guts than I do man. No way I'd take a saw to my XD.
He didn't want an SC. He wanted a short grip with a standard barrel. As others have already pointed out, and as I know from personal experience, when carrying concealed, the grip size is most problematic.manygunner said:For gods sake why did you mutilate a fine gun like this? I find that the SC grips are way too small for really useful shooting. If you wanted a SC why did you just not buy one?
At first, I was just gonna use EME's pics he posted of his cut down grip by counting the rows, I guess you would say, of the front and back of the grip. Then after getting the magazines, I just measured the difference of the location of the hole on the mags for the magazine catch, which was roughly 20.5 mm. I measured the difference where the grip is recessed for the grip, which was roughly 4 mm. So I first cut off 16.5 mm straight off. then went up 4mm and cut the recessed part using EME's pics as sort of a guideline of where to cut the angle. Then I cut the chamfered part on the inside of the grip for the magazine. All this was done a dremel using cutting wheels and sanding discs.Ben97XJ said:How much did you cut off? How did you determine where to cut and what did you use to do it?
