Pictures of my new IZH 46M grips

Hello everyone,

I've been working to customize the grips on my new IZH 46M pistol and finally finished them a week or so ago. Thought I'd share the results with you.



I finally got the grips done on my new pistol. I used my Dremel tool to customize the grips, then used my Wen engraver to stipple the grips. Finished that off with a little 180 grit sandpaper. Stained it with Red Devil English Walnut stain, three coats of Birchwood Casey Tru-Oil, she's a beauty. I'm really happy with the way it turned out. I'll let you send some lead down the barrel sometime. She's extremely accurate at 10 meters as she's a Match Pistol. If I do my JOB, she'll put pellets in the same hole over and over! I LOVE IT!



Now here is what I turned her into...

I finally got around to getting some Chrony numbers for my IZH 46M also. Here is the results

R10 Match Light 7 gr.

498.3
496.4
497.3
494.9
498
496.9
495.1
498.1

Meisterkugein Pistol 7 gr.

499.6
490.9
489.2
495.3
494.3
495.1

My IZH 46 seems to like the R10 Match pellets the best. I didn't do any extreme spread or standard deviation as I'll sort my pellets by weight at that time. I did want to get some Chrony numbers posted as you had asked. As I mentioned earlier I'm really looking forward to this winter shooting it in the garage.

Thanks!

I made a couple mistakes that I'm aware of, but the next time I'll fix it.

Thanks, I'm happy with the results.

I cannot express how much FUN it is to shoot this IZH.

good work try RSW hobbies.....

November 26 2010, 5:59 PM 

my 46 love them and every thing up the ladder too but that is for when points count.

if you do not know NT then try to figure it out in context, do not ask as you look the fool for not bothering to read much at all.

Nice Work. Also...

Nice job.  Isn't it surprising how many people have their grips still in original form?  I can't believe they like them like that since the block shape from the factory is intentional because you are supposed to modify them!

I've tried Vogels, CCS 4.50/4.51, R10s, H&N Match, Meisters, Hobby and pretty much all wadcutters.  I can honestly say that my shooting isn't to the point where I see a huge difference.  Quite honestly my favorite wadcutters are RWS Basics for my pistols and lower powered match rifles.  They are just as accurate if not more so and 1/3 the price.  By the sleeve I'm getting them for $4/500.  Can't beat that!

If you haven't tried them you should give a tin a test drive.

They look great,, good job!!

I cut mine too, figured I could build them
back up if I had to. I figured that was why
they made them the way they did. Or that
the eighth graders at Moscow Middle School
#213 had really big hands.

The finish looks good on yours, the stain you
chose, and the tru-oil really brought out the grain.

I did not bother putting any additional finish
other than to rub some walnut stain where
I stippled them. I didn't really want to seal the
stippling.
The original finish kept it from soaking
into the other parts of the grips.

Like Andy, I too shoot the RWS Basics.
Matches and practices. The only difference
is I will sort for defects when shooting
a match. Not that there are that many
in a tin, I think they are a bargain.
Just as the Izzy is.

Brushy Bill,

I never thought putting "initials" on the grips. Good idea! Your Izzy looks very nice.

how I contoured my grips...

Tom,

I use my dermal, but used small sandpaper discs to do all the contouring on my grips. I use the Wen engraver to do all the stippling.

You can also use these...

They are carbide burrs-rotary files with 1/8" shank. I purchased mine from MSDS which is a supply house for machining supplies although many woodworking dealers, like Traditional Woodworker, sell similar burrs.

I used the sanding drums,

November 27 2010, 1:24 PM 

They cut slower than the burrs,
makes it easier to not remove
too much material.
I started with a 1/2 inch and
also used a 3/4 inch where a larger
radius was needed.

Brushy Bill,

I used the same thing as you did. In my prior post I called them sanding discs, but you called them by the proper name. I liked them as they aren't overly aggressive and as they wear, you can do some pretty fine sanding with them.

Regards,

Great Job

November 26 2010, 8:22 PM 

I am still working on my grips, but I am having so much fun shooting that I haven't found the time to put the finishing touches on the grips. My Izzy seems to like most wadcutters, but the RWS Hobby is the best value per shot...........
