how did you guys do it?

Ive been looking for a way to custom one and make it really secure, other than wrapping with kydex material.

Has anyone here made one or is it better to just buy one....?

I DIY'd mine using a peice of sheet PVC and a heat gun, then riveted it into place.


No way I d pay 50 bucks for 2-3$ in materials and about 10 minutes of work.

I've made a few.

I purchased my kydex here:

I also bought these screws:

Comments:
- The Kydex I bought (.093) was too thick. Still useable, but I'll buy a thinnner sheet next time.
- The screws are too long, so I used washers as spacers.

What other materials are you considering, since Kydex is not an option?

+1 A cosmetically blemished model will set you back $14.99 (https://www.exilemachine.net/shop/exile-machine-hammerhead-ar-15-grip-blemished-285.html) plus if you're really feeling the need to DIY something you can hit it with some automotive primer or do a custom cammo scheme.

that might be an option if you are dealing with an AR-pattern firearm, but that won't work for any of the featureless guns I am interested in.

which kydex sheet did you get (Thickness wise?)

looks like they have a huge selection...

Im just wondering if anyone else did a diy other than kydex....
I have nothing against kydex, but ill use kydex if that's the only options really....

My custom grip. Cut offset slot in rear of grip, near left inner sidewall. 12 gauge steel fin was cut from the skid that a gunsafe came on, then painted with truckbed liner spray coating. Inserted fin into slot and drilled holes thru grip and fin. Bolted it together using locknuts inside the grip. If I ever run into an aggressive LEO who thinks he'll just unscrew my fin, it won't work. The nuts just spin in space when you turn the screw. Requires a hemostat to access/hold the locknuts deep inside the grip.

A scrap 14x14 sheet of 1/4" ABS runs about $2.50 from TAP plastic. Cutting into a grip handle and shaping ABS with a dremel is fairly easy.

That is awesome Jack! Thanks for sharing, FWIW the solar tac a2 wrap fits an ump pg and is held in place by the bottom part of the hk grip. I would start with that wrap on each of the items you have in hand and then using a heat gun and cutting tool you can iterate a pretty good fit.
