    :shock: The only time I got a mark like that was when I was purposely limp wristing it.
    How may rounds did you fire for that to happen?

    Over on GlockTalk, there are some pretty good threads on how to mod the frame with that putty.
    Works good if prepped properly.

    dang, looks rough.
    i've never had that, but I've never shot 310 rounds in one sitting, usually i shoot 80-120 rounds, after that I start getting sloppy.

    I wouldn't have a clue. I would recommend some grip tape and see if the pistol doesn't shift in your hand. Even when I shoot with sweaty hands and about 250 rounds, I have never had that experience.

    Sorry,

    Steyr has such a large gap for the thumb web, it is unusual to get that......make sure that your hand is all the way in the space before shooting. People with very "fleshy" hands can have this happen. The number of rounds you shot shouldn't make any difference. Focus on not letting the hand recoil upwards when shooting.

    Wow, that looks weird. Never had any irritation of any kind shooting my M9. Now the Colt 1991-A1 with 45 Super, that's a different story.

    The more I study your photo, the more it looks like the distance between your "Steyr Bite" wounds is slightly longer than the distance between the lugs of the Steyr grip...

    ..tell us the truth.....

    ...you were bitten by a real vampire, weren't ya?

    :wink: :wink:

    concerning the bite

    I let a guy at the range shoot my m40a1 yesterday and it seemed to flip real high in his hands, which it does not do when I shoot. Maybe its a shooting style thing?????

    about the link

    Wow that actually quilifies as the ugliest gun I have ever set my eyes on

    I have a G29 with a grip reduction, but I have no idea how it was done. A Glock armorer in Kansas did the work and I got the pistol from the guy who bought it from him. He told me it was to reduce it to 1911-angle, which is 111-degrees, which is incidentally the same angle as our beloved Steyr MA1s.

    It's probably due to my large hands. Lets put it this way, I find the DA trigger distance on a CZ-97 nice and comfy...

    I had Robar do the grip reduction on my Glock 27. They also NP3'd the slide and barrel.

    Looks like the bite my friend got when he came down here to FLA. Hes a big guy and being from NY he dont shoot much. I think its a combo of shootin style and hand size. try makin sure you get the web between the thumb and index finger nice and tight under the back of the grip.
