Postby rocco1911 » Sun Apr 19, 2009 3:08 pm

OK here we go you will see a series of pictures of the AR15 Grips on the market I am showing 4 different types that are available out there first up is all 4 in series of usefulness IMO yours may differ but bear in mind I have built quite a few of these I have 8 completed working guns & have assisted others in building them for several years.

Below is all 4

Next up is the Old Style wiselite these were the best for this type build but unfortunatly they decieded to change the design these were a 4 count on the 922r issue as well.

Notice if you will the position of the hammer when in the fired position it will mean a big difference later on...

Next we have the Thompson Machine PPB Grip I obtained this one from a friend in a trade it was originaly an AR15 grip style & it looked like crap on a mg42 in my opinion so I did my own modification & installed an original MG42 grip section on it.

OK if you look close you will see a marked difference in the position of the hammer when in the fired position

Is it possable to remove too much metal from the Thompson grip? Mine doesn't look like yours before you removed the metal. It actually looks close to it after the modification. Can you have too much hammer travel?

Hey Rocco,

VERY useful grip tutorial, such honest and straight-forward public service announcements are vital to good builds.
“… corporations have been enthroned, and an era of corruption in high places will follow, … until all wealth is aggregated in a few hands and the Republic is destroyed.”

- Abraham Lincoln (Republican), Nov. 21, 1864

No you want travel as much as possible & heavy hits...

I only use heavy hammer springs in all my builds you may be hitting the top inside of the bolt extension if your travel is ok out of the gun do you have a viewing slot cut in the top of the Bolt extension that you could see if the hammer is making contact with the FP ???
