Hämmerli SP20 Wooden Grip - Part 7

The Dembart checkering tools arrived from USA in mid-December. Short 5 minutes training with a wooden blank and I finished the grip a couple of hours later.

Many thanks to Oleksander Petriv, who have sent me photos and dimensions of his SP20 grip (made by Nijazi Ibrahimov) and allowed to copy it.

The final photos:

    Very nice grip! With that you will shoot 300 :)

  3. Looks like you ended up stippling much of the grip. I don't see too many well formed diamonds. It is not an easy task to get well formed checkering on the compound curves of pistol grips. Straight rifle stocks are hard enough. I have done a few rifles, so I knew what you were up against. You finished it well. It is something to be proud of to make such a beautiful grip that fits well. I am working on a grip for my air pistol. I am fighting internal stress in the wood that wants to warp it. It surely will not be as nice as yours.

    1. You are right. There are no diamonds. Only grooves perpendicular to fingers in some places.

  4. Igor,
    What particular checkering tools have you used. They have a wide variety of tools on the website. Trying to deside what to order
