G6R grips on an Alias frame

I had the two together last week but stupidly forgot to see how they fit. I know an Alias frame is a little chunkier than that of a Victory or G6R, but that would just mean they'd need to stretch a little, or not go as far back. The thing that has me skeptical as to if they'll work is the Alias frame isn't rounded off at the front, and newer style frames are.

The frame would need tapping, assuming they line up well enough. But does anyone know if they would work together with a bit of modification? I think the G6R grips look and feel great so having them would be amazing on an old Timmy.

Help is appreciated.

I have a feeling the top of the grips will be to wide using factory made holes. But at work I work can a set of grips on a 2k5'd YA.

Are you saying the top two holes on the grips would be too far apart to fit the frame well?

Yeah, that's essentially the problem as I see it. You could probably do it but it wouldn't be the same quality feel you'd get from the G6R with the same grips.

Looks like they fit pretty nice, thanks for doing photos. I hadn't considered the milling getting in the way, pretty annoying, might be more trouble than its worth getting them to fit.

Just trim the grips with some cutters and just don't screw up when drilling your holes.

if you really want rubber wrap-arounds - try hogue .45s They make some nice ones for reasonable prices. They are also a direct fit And you can pretend you're shooting a real gun.

My first attempt still working on screws have one in now. comment leave your thoughts. Used wire cutters to cut corners then a belt sander for shape then small file to clean up the rubber crumbles

Didn't like the way it looked once I removed the top two screws so rounded till I liked the way it looked probably been better if I had the gun with me at work but I didn't so i guessed I like the way it feels I usually never run grips on my older style Timmy's just my preference.

You used the wrong tools for this. X-acto is the way to go for cutting grips. If you use a piece of wood you can slice right through it and if you are proficient with a blade you can position it at an angle that will taper the edge so it almost looks like it was manufactured that way. then you can sand it with 300grit sandpaper and it will look perfect.

Not diggin' the final product.

Only one of the screw holes overlaps with the milling, correct? I'm assuming that you didn't want to to use the existing holes in the grips and decided to drill your own and use the ones already existing in the body?

What kind of place could I go to have them tap holes to match the grips? I don't really want to buy a set to do it myself.

First off you need the heavy duty blades like on the heavy duty X-acto model below and it takes several passes to cut through the plastic but it will cut through it. Once cut you have to sand it with a high grit paper to make it smooth. you can use a touch of soapy water as well to make it easier to take down and make it silky smooth.




Another way to do it is to use a high speed band saw to cut the initial shape and then use the X-acto to trim the top edge at an angle to created the tapered edge before sanding.

Trimmed way to much. Using gamers picture for a reference, I would trim the one corner and redrill/tap all new holes to fit in the grips.

If you go to a machine shop, it's going to cost you a LOT more than the $15ish it'll cost you for a drill, tap and tap wrench for those holes. DIY and save some money. If you're not familiar with how to do it try checking youtube for demos and practice on some scrap first.

Alright, sounds good. I guess it's about time I start collecting tools anyways.
