Hämmerli SP20 Wooden Grip - Part 1

The season 2012 has passed and now I have time to make custom wooden grip for my Hämmerli SP20 .32 S&W. Finally.
This time I plan every step twice (making grip for Feinwerkbau AW93 I did a lot of sloppy mistakes... and therefore spent a lot of time fixing them).

Before the beginning

I cut the plastic frame

Template divided in zones (number in mm means cutout depth and "5" below is the blank price in Euros)

Template markings transferred on wooden blank

Cut off the bottom part (future palm shelf)

Working step by step controlling every cutout with caliper
(such precision workflow is incomparable with my first experience)

First phase - I drill the blank. Second phase - work with chisel. Third phase - control with caliper.

P.S.: Today I have found that Rink makes grips for SP20. In my case I will fix the plastic frame with four screws.


  1. You do know that you need the special frame / adapter in order to use the Rink grip?

    1. According to the info on the website - special adapter isn't needed.

    Looks like the SP20 (and many other guns) may be banned by new ISSF rule on "vibration reduction systems" going into effect on January 1st, 2013.
