|Ah yes, my unrelenting desire to modify. Isn't that one of the things we love about 1911s? So the CO2 cartridge, tiny as it is, is still wider than a single stack .45 magazine, therefore the frame has these little humps to accommodate accordingly. I got these SkinGripz because they are inexpensive and made of some kind of composite that I figured could be modified. Don't ask me why I got gray because I'm not even really sure. I figured the gun would be black for awhile because Durcoating is on my list of things I want to try, just not really close to the top. Gray might still look cool with a brown color, I dunno. Anyway, 5 minutes with the Dremel and we're all set. It's not beautiful but it works. The grips do provide useful traction but they are made from a very smooth substance; if that makes sense. The thumb grove is somewhat functional but honestly, it doesn't shorten the REACH to the mag release ... not really.|
