    Default Bawanna grips

    I got a package from Bawanna (Thank You!!!) today for my EARLY MK9.

    I like them a lot. I didn't take a pic of the other side because someone cross threaded one of the holes, so that hole has a stock slotted screw until I get a tap it fix it. The bigger hump in the back makes it feel more like my Glocks (a good thing).

    There's not much metal in the frame for the screws to thread to. Have to be perfect to use it all for strength but not to long to interfere with the magazine.

    I don't have issue with slotted screws, easier to find a screwdriver than an allen wrench when you out and about and the grip is loose.

    I do like them ones that do both allen or slot, need to get me some of those. Often thought of installing 1911 bushings on a Kahr. I'm not much for metal working and threading and such though. Be afraid I'd mess it up, but that would help I think.

    Glad they work for you, the beauty of wood is they can be tweeked or modified to meet your needs.

    The back could use a little fitting, but they feel good in my hand. I don't want to mess them up. They add a lot of class and a better feel over the plastic grips. This is still a carry gun, so fiction is #1. It's still nice having it look good.

    For the screws, I used slim 1911 screws.

    What kind of fitting does the back need? Matching up or gaps or what? They were perfect on my loaner MK, maybe best I ever done.
    If they don't fit that's unacceptable. Pictures.

    Maybe I made it sound like more than it is, maybe just a little sanding to even the halves up, the right side is slightly proud at the top, but holding it like you would shoot it, you don't feel it.

    You might loosen the screws a bit and they might move enough to line up, then snug the screws back down.
    I try for minimal movement but always seems to be a little bit.
