Oh, forgot this is a pictures thread. Here's a mod I did with a blemished hammerhead and a bit of Sculpey clay and some automotive primer. Just monkeying around a bit to show how you can take the Hammerhead and with a little bit of effort and fifty cents worth of materials make it your own...



-Mark
How does that clay hold up? Does it harden like polymer? Does it merge well with the existing?

You may sway me back to your grip

Sculpey is actually PVC plastic; it's not really clay. How good a result you get depends on your skill in working the material. It adheres to the existing grip quite well. You bake it in your oven to harden it. It can be brittle when hardened, how brittle depends on how thick you make it and how long you cook it. If done right it should work just fine for range use and plinking. I wouldn't put a sculpey clay mod to any use more intense than that.

When I heard clay, I thought brittle. I run my rifles through course so it wouldn't work for me.

Nice looking concept.

Thanks for the reply.

Could it be possible to make that as a new model of grips, because I would buy one

Is that a Kurts Kustom Fake Flash Hider? I had one on my featureless for awhile and sold it on the trader some years back now. It's a pity Kurt died in that crash.

Here's my AR... It's not quite featureless yet but just getting started. I have had the Hammerhead for quite some time and never really got comfortable behind it. Until one day my buddy gave me his used Mako Magwell grip and I had a bright idea! I just drilled 1 hole and used a screw to hold both together securely. It feels very comfortable now and just wondering what you guys would think about it. Haven't shot with it yet but its quite an improvement overall feel with the just the Hammerhead.

FYI my rifle is not featureless and all I did to it was the grip mod. The stock is not pinned and the Pmag is blocked @ 10, thanks!

Thanks Mark! I actually do have a CTR spare that I am planning on throwing on soon. But the great thing about this setup is that my thumb naturally rests right on the ambi safety switch. Now, I am looking at getting a different ambi switch with a bit larger lever, than the one I have now.

If you are in the PRK, featureless is the only way to go.

Commie CA laws are stupid. If one modifies the grip it make it legal. That just sounds stupid. If only DOJ would realize how dumb their definitions are. Thank God for Ca ingenuity.

I decided to paint my blemished Hammerhead, and for some reason it took over my rifle and never stopped until all the goodies are gone then pulled my index finger to drop my mags.
Now range time will be next to see if he really belongs there![IMG][/IMG]

No, the law only tells you what makes something ILLEGAL. So no, I can't explain what makes something legal except to say "it's not illegal". :P

the fact that you cant wrap your thumb around it makes it legal.

Sure... Finger grooves have nothing to do with the definition of a pistol grip.

CA 11 CCR 5469(d) says "pistol grip that protrudes conspicuously beneath the action of the weapon" means a grip that allows for a pistol style grasp in which the web of the trigger hand (between the thumb and index finger) can be placed below the top of the exposed portion of the trigger while firing.



As long as the grip keeps the web of your firing hand above the yellow line in the picture above, you could have finger grooves or no finger grooves as you like. It's not a pistol grip.

Actually you can wrap your hand around a Hammerhead grip, and the DOJ has testified that it's legal when used on a featureless rifle.

I bought my only featureless rifle a couple of weeks ago. So much easier to change out mags without the radlock/bullet button. Maybe I'll do an AR or AK in the near future.

How does the rifle shoulder when using the hammerhead grip n stock extension on there seems like it would bring the bore axis amd soghts up really high n make it harder to control muzzle rise.

I won't quote the whole thing here and derail the pictures thread but for a discussion of this issue complete with photos, please read our FAQ, item #3. In short, it's not an issue, and muzzle rise is actually 2-3x less with a Hammerhead equipped rifle compared to a free-state AR-15 as commonly shouldered, not even taking into consideration that you use a muzzle brake instead of a flash hider on a featureless build.
