Modify 27 Vert. Grip
Posted 09 September 2005 - 03:43 AM
I was thinking that Dan Block makes a horizontal fore end that is a 1/2" longer to help make the 16.5 barrel appear shorter.
My idea was a new grip mount that had the bolt hole a 1/2" further out, and a vertical grip with a 1/2" extra wood. I photoshopped
my Kahr to make a model of my design. I would use it on a barrel/comp that was cut down to 16.5 OAL.
Good idea? Crazy idea? Or should I go back to sleep and stop bothering everyone on the net? KJ

I'm sure Dan can do the work right. I love my vertical grip I had him do. Along with that perhaps, give this a thought. Theres some folks out here that can shorting the barrel and weld the comp on so the comp will part of the barrel and the barrel after will total 16" inches. I think Doug can do this with parts. Maybe, PK can do or do the work. Perhaps PK can recontour the barrel so theres not so many fins and do the rest as stated before. Just a thought-adlake

After I get done mounting the 28 frame to my Kahr I was going to send it out to PK or Damon to have the barrel shortened like you mentioned. I just haven't decided if it would be worth the effort to make a new grip mount and have Dan make a new grip. Just looking for others opinions.

People also talk about moving the comp back, how about taking it off all together and go for the 21A look?

When I picture a tommy in my head, it is always a vertical grip, drum mag and comp. Just my personal preference.
When I get closer to being finished I will have to talk to you about making a longer grip. Kj
