That's not so much a trigger pull as it is a Vulcan Mind-Meld control. By the time you've given it a serious thought, it's long fired !

You are a lot further along on it than I am. That trigger will need some getting used to.

If you know what you want/where to remove material....... use some 40 grit sanding rolls of varying dia. .
Working from front and rear of grips to form a glove basically .
The course grit rolls will remove material pretty quickly .

Grips OFF of gun of course.



It nice that the owners manual that came with it is in English, too bad the part about test firing was either not recorded just inspectors initials or is Russian #'s !?

Is others the same?

Between 13 mph winds and frozen fingers I think it has potential.

25 yds , 2 hand (sort of lol) left elbow rested.

I noticed rear sight is extremely tight , spring can not hold in position when adjusting elevation so will need some work.
All in all I think once grip is finished , preferred ammo is found and small bugs worked out of sight it will be a shooter.
I' sure the holes in target that is not in x-ring is my cold fingers/13 mph wind and not being used to such a trigger!

I stopped shooting when I dropped the low /right one.

Here is my one handed standing unsupported @25 yds effort after more work on grip.
Be prepared .... this is an ADDICTING style of shooting.
Cold and windy and I'm out shooting !

After approximately 5 hrs total time I have the grip fitting my hand like it grew there.
Will leave this way for awhile to make sure there are no changes needed.

Once satisfied with interior of grip will shape, sand and apply finish.
Will probably make a better looking forend with some checkering .
A gun that shoots this well deserves nice furniture.

I would compare interior shaping of grip to porting a set of cyl.heads for a race engine.
Anyone with experience porting heads will have no problem fitting grip to hand.

At least the inside of the grip don't need as high of polish job as an exhaust port !
No, INTAKE ports don't get a mirror finish, swirl is where your more constant fuel mix comes from ! ;)

I will probably polish the inside of grip as well and apply finish to seal wood.

Will add stippleing in areas needed .
Little bit I have shot it , the rough texture left from shaping grip is uncomfortable in tender areas of hand.


The issue with rear sight was not really an issue. Lack of knowledge on my part( I think). Seems the flat head screw on the windage adj. also serves as a lock to help keep sight in adj. for elevation.
That is how I will use it anyways.
Once elevation is good with above said screw loose will tighten it to help hold adj.

On another note, when you guys go to adj. trigger position , change sights or loosen any screw..... I suggest having a quality thin blade ( gunsmith) screwdriver as the screws on my gun are ridiculously tight!



Shot it a little more today ( addicted already!) Best 10 shot 2 hand group was 3 1/8 w× 1 5/8 h unsupported @ 50 yds.
Can' wait for some better weather!

Since I will not be shooting in 2018 Olympics and like my firearms flexible as possible for WHATEVER I decide to use them for, I am making provisions for better 2 handed shooting.

On those screwdrivers, check at Brownell's, they offer what they refer to as a "thin bit" set, usually they're used on older Browning's & British shotguns, they are the same as the usual bits, except they are in the -1 or -2 series, the new sets start with a -3 bit thickness.
Also, they have expanded their bit sizes a lot in the last 3-4 years, with a LOT of specialty bits now available that needed to be custom ground before.

ps: love the idea of a 2-handed "combat' grip on a Free Pistol ! ;)
