Just got done assembling a Cav Arms tupperware lower/buttstock assembly. It seems to be a pretty nifty arrangement; although tuning the Accuracy Speaks FCG to satisfaction took a little more persistence and care than one typically encounters with an aluminum lower. Fortunately, that's a one time effort so no biggie.

The problem for me is that this unit seems to be designed for the perceived problem some large folks have with the trigger being too close to the grip. It seems to be dimensionally similar to having one of those spacer thingamajigs that sets the grip further to the rear of the gun. Somebody like InnocentBystander would probably love this setup. But then, his fingers are so long that he gets unsolicited love letters from female octopuses. I on the other hand, have digits probably better described as "nubs" than "fingers" and this arrangement is a real PITA for me. That is; I have to shift my hand around on the grip to either drop the mag or fully disengage the safety; the latter being reminiscent of an MP-5 or an HK-91. That, and the 3.5 lb. trigger pulls feels like about 7 lbs. because my finger has so little purchase/leverage on the trigger.

I'm giving some thought to shaving the back of the pistol grip to get my hand further forward. Does anybody know how much meat there is to work with back there before I end up dremmelling air?

Thanks in advance.


PS: This unit is REAL light. It's more than a little weird to have a rifle with the lightest possible barrel and a featherweight float tube with nothing on it feel nose heavy. But hey, WTF?

Can't say I know how much plastic is back there. Do you think that you can actually remove that much to make a difference?

Yuo may want to post this in their industry forum.

They may be able to get you a pic of one of the halves (before welding) to see what is there to work with.

Doh! Good thinking.
