View Full Version : AR & AK Modified pistol grips, in progress

02-14-2007, 9:02 AM
Well I started on my modified pistol grips for my AR & AK. I have MM Grips for both, but since I had these lying around I decided to see what I can come up with. I much rather prefer the pistol grip over the rifle style grip. But since I can't have that with detachable mags I decided to modify these pistol grips. They basically keep the same angle but just are going to have the back section filled in to meet up with the stock so my thumb can't reach around it.

This is just the start. Used a piece of press board or something for the filler piece. Cut a notch/channel in the back of the grip. Green 3M taped off grip where I don't want the glue. Used Duramix 4058 to glue the filler piece into the notch. Green 3M taped up the receiver and stock. Then attached it to the receiver. Then used Duramix 4058 to fill in the gap from the filler piece to the stock so it will be all flush.

The next step is to drill some holes in the filler piece and fill the middle in with more duramix, either 4058 or 4040, or maybe some Everglass. Also gonna add to the rear some more. Then sand and shape and paint.

I'll do some more work on them this weekend.

Id be carefull with that. From those pictures, it looks like I could still grasp that the same way I would a normal pistol grip. It would fit a little different.. but I can still grasp it

Edit: I know you said you were gong to add to the rear a little more.

Yeah I am adding onto the rear more. Enough so someone with a larger hand can't get their thumb around it either.

I was considering something similar gluing a piece of kydex in place.

Another thought, for the AR15, was creating just the U15 pistol grip portion, keeping the hand above the line.

Updated pic of the AR grip. Got a little more filling in and sanding to do in some areas but it's close. AK grip is in the same shape just didn't have it with me to get a pic of it.
