Incase you didn't see my grips in my TBO trigger review thread, Here they are.




I figured I'd do something different than just a dot for the board LED. And I countersunk the holes, and found some flat headed screws from my old pair of Dye Stickies

Hopefully I will get my laser engraved ones cut out on the engraver Monday at school, the design is sweet.

**TIP FOR THOSE PLANNING TO USE LASER ENGRAVERS: You have to use Acrylic, not the Lexan. The lexan was too hard for the engraver, and if I bumped up the power, it would just start to burn and melt the lexan. Sheets of Acrylic come in 11x14, so you can make even more

Yeah, I saw those. Have you tried using those grips yet in the sun? I would think that the light coming in through that "bar" of clear would mess up the optical sensor for the trigger.

The size of the lexan that I just bought was I think 18x24 from Lowes. I also just found some clear sticker paper that you can print on (you have to mirror the image though so that why when you put them onto the back of the lexan it reads correctly). I am going to either print out the design with the badge and rose and of st. michael, or make some using the image of the stickers I got from Virtue and put them on some new grips I am going to make this weekend with my wife out of town.

This is what they will look like:

Here are the updated pictures. I used Avery #18665 sticker paper from Office Depot ($10 for 10 8.5"x11" sheets). If you do this, the image has to be fipped horizontally so that when you put the stickers on the backside of the grips they look correct through the front. I also put another layer of the sticker paper over the printed copy so that there is little-no chance of the image rubbing off. MAKE SURE IT IS DRY FIRST! Yes, the grips are a little hazy---I need to polish them.

Talk about bringing a dead thread back.

For the smoked mirror, you can buy Lexan with the Mirror backing on it from Lowes (special order). I am sure they have the "Smoked mirror" as well.

Border411, in your first post you stated the sheets from Lowe's were to thin for your liking, Do you know of hand what the thickness was. I found a site that carriers lexan sheets in 1/8", 1/4", and 1/2" thickness, obviously its not 1/2" thick and I was thinking 1/8" would be good but is it to thick!

It was the 1/8" stuff. It worked well enough to the point where I didnt even bother trying to purchase anything thicker. With the 1/8" lexan though, you couldnt recess the holes for the grip screws. But with the stock screws, everything worked well.


On a side note----I cant believe that I have over 2600 views on this thread! That is sick!
