Has anyone sanded off the finger groove of their A2 Grip , if so, what did you use to accomplish this? How did it turn out?

Why not just find a cheap A1 grip?

I did. I just used a bench grinder to take it most of the way down (dremel would work as well) then I used files and then finally sand paper to get it the rest of the way there.

How does it look? Alright I guess but I didn't do it for looks. I do however greatly prefer the feel of it because I hate finger grooves and that was the whole point of it for me.

Just do it, if you don't like it then all it will cost you is $5 to replace it assuming you don't already have 5-10 extra A2 grips laying around.

Why blow $6 + shipping when you can just sand off the hump? Takes 5-10 minutes, costs nothing and no waiting by the mail box

Used a bench grinder....takes 5 min.
Who cares what it looks like if it feels good.

I've done it with a dremel, and I'm about to try another one with a bench grinder.

I also had a buddy glass bead blast the hole grip afterwards to make the finish match all the way around. Looks pretty good to me.

Yup, cheap and easy to do.

Then next one to get the "treatment" is my Sierra Precision SPR grip.

I did the same thing. And I've got extra A2 grips all over the place.

I was going to say the same thing, then I got to thinking how many A2 grips I've got laying around.

I used a rasp and then a mill bastard file. 3M indoor out door non-slip thread tape gives a good grip you can get it a Home depot.

I’ve done it in an attempt to replicate an A1 grip. Used a razor knife, sandpaper and Brasso.
