I've been trying to find it as well, but it is no longer found on their website that I can see. Only search result using Google that I get is the video review on YouTube, but that is from quite awhile ago.

Well, I purchases a 1/4" thick piece of steel flat bar stock from Home Depot and cut it down to the right dimension. Made sure to file it down to tight tolerances. It actually fits VERY securely just as a friction fit, but I'm not trusting just that with the recoil forces acting upon it. Secured it with a little epoxy.
It does provide a just noticeable difference in the normal gripping and handling it. Makes it feel like a Ruger American pistol regarding the weight.

Going to the range next week to test it out. I have high expectations.

How did that work out for you ??

Works surprisingly well. Feels a smidge better balanced. I decided to use a few drops of loctite super gel instead of epoxy just incase I needed to remove it easily. Sits flush with the frame and the recoil spring/guide bar easily clears it.

There is a smal gun club where I live that has a bunch for M-a1, and at least 2 for L-a1. Could not find any for S. (I just bought an M one to modify it). Dont know if they will ship but if anyone is interested I'll get you the number or get it and send it your way. They are selling at $30.00 + 11.5%tax = $33.45(about). Plus whatever shipping which should not be more than $5.00 to USA. The place is called "Executive Gun Shop" in Guaynabo, PR USA.

Thanks Nandopr, I'll ask but most stores in the US will not ship to Australia.

All the best for the season

Hey Mike, Rafa, the owner is kind of eccentric so I doubt he'll ship to Australia. If you ant to take the chance with me I can get it and ship it your way.... don't know how much shipping would be. if you get me an address I can find out for you by next week and let you know. I just bought another one to modify it for my S40 but I can check before I do any of that.

Hi Nandopr,

Thank you for the response, I appreciate your offer a great deal it's very kind of you to make the offer to help me out. I have decided to make one of these myself as I have the measurements and tools to produce one pretty easily and that would save a lot of mucking around on tour side. I may add it has nothing to do with taking a chance with you as I trust any fellow forum member.

Take Care and all the best for the season

Mike

I'm definitely interested- I can't seem to find them anywhere! Let me know how you'd like to work it out, but if you could grab 2 of them for me, that would be awesome!
