Hämmerli SP20 Wooden Grip - Part 5

Today's post covers making of palm shelf.

Working on the grip I had suitable rest piece of wood for the palm shelf.
Drew the contour and started to work with the chisel.

Chisel, rasp and sand paper.

Fits well.

Did two holes (two inox M4 screws). Made desired shape.

Cutouts for adjusting screws (rear sight).

Looks better and better...

I am satisfied.

I expect some work regarding fitting the measurement box 300 x 150 x 50 mm. I don't think, that pistol will fit in it now. Here 1-2mm and there 2-3mm. As always.
Shape is OK, but I will try it in two or three days... the hand should rest after hard work with the chisel before next shape corrections.

Once again about muscle control

Found here (by Alex Kudelin, SCATT co-founder).

Good sight alignment is important but muscle control is more important.

Brain activity.

Top row - beginners.
Bottom row - national team.

First column: eyes are closed
Middle column: eyes are simply opened
Right column: eyes are opened (sighting)

Think about it.

For me - no matter what brain activity is - but I see on the picture above that my feelings during the shooting must be approximately the same as standing with closed eyes.

New Steyr LP10 electronic trigger

Thanks to Elaxandru D., who has sent this screenshot.

I have heard about new trigger in May and now we have first confirmation. Steyr LP10 electronic trigger with USB-charging port. I have heard that new circuit is smaller and shooters, who have small hands, can have smaller grips.
