After the Area 1 Championships in Eastern Washington, I discovered a small crack on the plastic SVI grip of my Open Gun. This is from loading to 29 rounds in my 170mm magazines and shoving it into a gun with one round in the chamber. This repeated stress led to this infamous crack in the grip right at the mag release button.
Luckily my gunsmith JPL (http://www.jplprecision.com) has a stock STI plastic grip. Took it home and made the necessary modifications to the magwell to remove excess plastic and make the funnel smooth…
Also took the opportunity to cut two finger grooves under the trigger guard to get a higher purchase on the gun and smoothen out the edges just above the mag release button hole. This is so that my fingers won’t be bruised by a sharp edge.
There we go, all done and back together again.
