Upper Frame Width:



Lower Frame Width:



Frame Thickness (No Grips):



F8 Frame Thickness (Stock Grips):



G3 Frame Thickness (Thinner in the Middle):



G3 Frame Thickness (Dark Seoul Grips):



I was AMAZED to find that the F8 frame is actually a tiny bit smaller than the G3!

But you do have to realize that many of the differences are on the range of
0.05" (aka 5 hundreths of an inch aka 1/20 of an inch). This is smaller than
the smallest marking on a ruler (1/16"), so is very hard to notice.

I think there are two reasons the new frame "feels" smaller:
1. The trigger is much closer to the frame. Hand feels less "stretched" to reach it.
2. The thin part of the new grips are almost 2/10" thinner than the old grips.
This is noticeable and it is basically the only point in which your hand is really
grasping the frame.

The rest of the grip is more contoured to the hand. Making it wider at the
bottom (in both directions) really fits the hand well. The DS grips are even
thinner than the thinnest area of the stock ones, but I am still not sure which
I like the "feel" of more.

The stock grips on the G3 are VERY nice, and completely change how the gun
feels. If DP offered these for their older guns I think they would be a "must
have" upgrade.

Hes basically saying even though the the f8 frame is thinner, but the g3 feels thinner because of

1) the trigger is closer to the frame
2) The grips are thinner

at least i think thats what hes saying

I just updated the original post of this thread. It should be much easier to find
your way around all the G3 info now

I think we could sticky it if the title was changed to avoid confusion. Or it could be added to the ultimate sticky.
