to their unique design, some models are only of limited use for grip
customization, or totally unsuitable, as certain problems arise. These
factors should be considered before purchasing a sport weapon:
- Walther GSP
not suitable for flat angled grips (sloping posture of the hand).
Otherwise the grip becomes too short and the trigger finger has to be
drawn too far upwards. Because of its narrow frame, grips can however
easily be made for small hands.
- Walther SSP
highly suitable for a sloping posture of the hand (flat angled grips).
In addition, the grip may extend far to the back, as the overall length
is shorted by the top loading magazine.
- Haemmerli SP20 and 280
have very low situated trigger areas. Should you prefer a steep grip on
these weapon types, the horn ends up being very thick in the area
between thumb and forefinger and the sight, i.e. sight is situated
extremely high. Due to its relatively wide frame it is not easy to
fabricate grips for small hands.
- Haemmerli 208, Xesse, S&WM41 etc.
to its grip magazine only suitable for steeper angled grips.
Furthermore the hand is only supported by a small metal horn from above.
- FP Steyr
unsuitable for flat angled grips, due to its highly situated trigger.
Otherwise the trigger finger has to be drawn too far upwards.
- FWB P40 and older types
have a rather wide frame at the back. Shooters with short fingers cannot reach the trigger easily.
- FWB P44
has an extremely small frame. Thereby it is highly suitable for
shooters with small hands or short fingers.
- FWB AW93
well suited for flat grips due to its angled frame. Due to its magazine
shaft grip it is also unsuitable for short fingers. Just as with the
SSP the grip can extend far to the back.
- Pardini SP and HP
cause problems to shooters with very long fingers: The area in front of
the trigger is measured very tightly, allowing little space for the
