  1. Looks a bit like the barrel of an old hammerli model, no? And I very much like the grip(glove)

  2. It is neither a Hämmerli barrel, nor Lothar Walther barrel, nor any russian barrel.

  4. Some of them think that barrel is too tight (about 5.35-5.40mm).

    Last what I have heard Reppich finally accepted critics and new CM84 barrels must be about 5.50mm.

    For example all TOZ-35(M) barrels are different - from 5.30 (most of them TOZ-35) to 5.50 (TOZ-35M).

    One thing I always have been wondering about is that Russian grip makers always use the "thump opening", also when making grips for western pistols like Morini, and in this case Matchgun.
    What is the purpose of that? Manage the recoil correct and steadyness I guess. But in exactly what why does this "opening" support this?

  6. Grips with covered thumb finger?
    It is historically so (traditional look & feel) ... and it does not affect anything.

  7. Interesting grips, where or how can I get one for my Morini? Who can tell me who can make me a grip like the one made for the Matchgun in the pictures.

    Thank you,
