Fancy custom grips for IZH 46M
« on: February 02, 2021, 04:32:08 PM »
While preparing to fit up my funky IZH grips to my hand, I came up with this.   Wrap a bunch of rubber bands around the grip and wedge some random objects under the rubber bands to fill in the low spots.  Also jammed some coins between the shelf and grip to widen the shelf.   It actually feels pretty good like this.   Maybe I'll leave it and let the guys at the club drool over my custom fitted grips.

Fit is definitely the most important. But what are the actual wood grips that are underneath? They don't look like the blocky chunks of wood that came on mine. I did a lot of sanding and shaping and I like how mine fit now but they don't look as nice as what wood I can see on yours looks.

I bought it used so I don't know if the previous owner modified the stock grips to suit him but there are no obvious signs of owner shaping.  I'd say the grips are on the large size for the average hand and the thumb side of the grip looks like it was shaped on a tablesaw.   The shelf definitly does not suit me and I will carve some finger grooves eventually.   I also don't like how slippery the finish is so I might stick on some self adhesive grip tape.   Or just leave the rubber bands.
