I like this mock up angle, but it may be borderline if someone with large hands and long fingers can activate the trigger.

This one seems safer but not as good looking.

Looks like it will work. You are going to make me have to buy one of those. Nice job

Way too close for comfort for someone with long fingers.

Please reread 11 CCR 5469 definition of pistol grip.

Oh yes they do.

I didn't own one of those plastic HK rifles before I bout that thumb hole filler for it.

Now im looking for one and have spotted one on GB.

Not that im complaining what so ever. Any reason that gets me motivated to buy a new HK rifle is OK with me.


Thanks.

+1.

Push it back as far as possible.

Mock up no. 3

Mock up no. 4. This one should have the same angle as the bottom of the grip, going all the way to the stock.

4 looks safe, and I like how it matches the angle off the bottom of the grip.

How about you put some curve into it. Like so.

What are those brackets for? I guess to hold the filler plug in place. How about just mold it to the grip?

My vote is for either 3 or 4. Play safe.

I simply don't have the artistic skills that you posses. That is truly one nice looking grip.

Your grip filler looks very secure, but the groove I would have to put into the HK grip would probably not support the filler. One good wack and it could possibly pop out. Not to mention cutting into an expensive lower, which doesn't even belong to me would not be good.:D

well once you get the plug made. Take a round sanding block, or a round dowell or something. And just start sanding away at the back to make the curve. I've see the other plugs you made and they look great.

Wanna sell me one? :D Good luck with making it! I think #4 is the best "starting point," but you might want to do some shaping on the back to make it more user-friendly.
