P83 Wanad grips by Marschal

Post by gman68w » October 14th, 2017, 4:17 pm

The guy that does custom wood grips for your (and mine) P64's also did a set for my P83. It's not a regular option on the order page, you'll have to email him directly and ask about making a set for you.

I got mine made from wattle (Tried doing thuja, but the panels were too thin to work with it), and opted for "groove" checkering just like the original grips. And also a little extra on the right-hand panel. :D

Unfortunately, after taking it out for a test run, the top end of the right-hand panel split. I see immediately what happened. The hammer had been tapping against the tip there on every fire cycle. I had the same issue with the P64 grips he made for me before. Lucky he does replacements for no extra charge.

This will help him to make modifications to a new version to keep it from cracking.

Yeah, sanding that part flat should fix it. Looks that way on the originals
