The fit is absolutely perfect, the finish is perfect, the feel is great, and can't wait to shoot with it.
A work of art!!!!!
Sincere thanks for the kind words! I'm thrilled that you like it
Nice to know it went to a good home.
I've received 2 PMs asking about fit of the grip for various hand sizes. I thought a few pictures might help demonstrate how it fits better than words.
My wife wears women's small gloves. Her hands are tiny. She's shot my green prototype quite a bit last summer when I was finalizing the design and she thinks the grip is fine. It fills her hand, but it isn't overly large nor is it awkward at all according to her. The pad of her index finger lands right on the trigger.
I wear men's medium gloves, I'd say my hands are average size. I'm able to get a good firm grip, and comfortably wrap my fingers around. It feels secure. The pad of my index finger lands on the trigger if I bend my finger at an angle, same as my remington 700. The trigger is not so close that I have to shoot it with the center of my finger like my AR or AK.
I'll be the first one to admit that no one size ever fits all, but my green prototype has been handled or shot by 7 or 8 people ranging in hand size from small to bear-claws. Completely unsolicited, most commented that they like the grip on their own. None mentioned it being too large or showed any dislike. Some noticed the palm swell and commented that it fit their hand well. Admittedly I havent had any leftys handle it, but its symmetric and should be OK for them too
