    Default Frame modification

    I am considering adding a bit of hook to the bottom front of the trigger guard on my CW380. I feel it would help reduce flip with more finger pressure there. Has anyone done this? What did you use to build up the trigger guard. I thought of using JB Weld, but thought someone on here must know of the perfect product to use.

    Interesting concept
    Have you considered something like adding jibbing, like on a knife.
    I have done it for a better grip


    Might work

    If I can't get anything to stick to the frame I may try that. Thanks.

    I like what Tilos suggest.

    I think some other options would be:
    Stippling the front of the guard
    Adding some sort of anti-skid material (such as the tape used on skateboard deck and stair steps or a specialty product such as that offered by Talon grips) to the front of the guard.

    I think I would try the tape or Talon's product first as those are easily undone.

    Regards,

    I put skateboard tape on the side of the receiver where my support side thumb would be on my CM9; my thumb extends beyond the trigger guard thus gaining more leverage on the front of the pistol then at the front of the trigger guard.

    I agree about something temporary 100%.

    I look at anything I put on as being temporary. If I can file and sand it to shape it I can certainly remove it the same way.

    If you need to attach something or just build up Acraglas from Brownells is miraculous stuff. It sticks to near anything, it's hard yet not brittle. Impervious to most everything.
    With the proper amount of black dye (included) it's a near perfect match for a Kahr frame too.

    Will be very tough to remove if you change your mind though. It's hard stuff.

    I will want to file and sand it to shape so it must be machineable. It sounds like the acraglas might be too hard. I'll check out their site. JB Weld isn't looking too bad right now.

    You can file and shape Acraglas. It's very similar to Marine Tech if you've ever used that. JB Weld might be similar too, never used it before.
