PMACA fitment question



Log in to see fewer ads
I'm considering a PMACA chassis, using an all Kidd barreled action.

I have seen some pictures with a very unattractive gap between the pistol grip and the rear of the Kidd trigger guard. I have seen others where it looks great.

Is there a filler that goes between the grip and the trigger group?

What pistol grips will work the best to minimize the gap?

Thanks,

It is not really as bad as it looks, as the one piece AR adapter grip overlaps the AR grip by a bit, thus minimizing the gap:

It is not too obvious because it's black (finely-machined 1-piece delrin), but if you have one up close I am pretty sure you would be fine with it.

You know, that delrin AR adapter also serves as an anchoring point because it presses against a portion of the trigger assembly like a fulcrum.

I noticed the anomaly and was about to sand it a bit, but when I tightened the action screw it was so super solid even with a heavy KIDD barrel.

I remember reading about a guy who dremeled because it pressed against his trigger assembly big time.

To clarify, I use Tactical Innovations trigger housings, so it might not work that way if you use other trigger assemblies, but this is just a heads-up in case you get yours.

Speaking of gaps again, the KIDD chassis is a different story though---too much cavity a truck could pass through it, lol!

Personally, I find those fillers funky--plastic and looks like trash, IMHO.

Oh, I think Grey Birch Solutions did a very good job on that ever-present gap

Perfect photos

See what I mean about the curve of the trigger assembly ever so slightly pressing against the delrin AR grip adapter, thus preventing the action from the phenomenon called teeter totter.

PMACA also utilizes a heavier no-unthreaded neck stainless action screw---bigger head with accompanying washer.

Yes , I see what you mean ! I have a rear tang on my Kidd. I like that PMACA accommodates this .

So with the Delerin piece , you actually get a 3rd point to lock down the action !

So you are getting the Long Nose version?

I think that is their only model with a KIDD rear tang provision.

Thanks,

Iím working on making a Kidd trigger compatible version of my grip. It looks very similar to this one that overlaps the stock Ruger trigger housing, but will butt up against the rear instead of overlapping.
