Want that bakelite pistolgrip look with out the US parts count hassle. Try painting your pistolgrip with the color of your choice. I degreased mine then applied a couple coats of primer. Let the primer dry a couple days then polish with brown shoe polish to get the proper sheen. Mine has held up pretty good so far.


My second photo shows the slant break I ordered from Global Trades. I cleaned out the inner threads, drilled and tapped for a set screw, then dimpled my barrel. Pressed onto the barrel, then installed set screw with lock tight. File set screw tip to a slight point to get a better grip. File down exposed set screw, touch up with Cold Blue. The brake retaining pin was made from a nail I turned down to the correct size, cut to the correct length, I removed material for the pin to slide back and forth over the front sight base retaining pin. After application of Cold Blue, I pushed out the forward sight base pin, installed a spring from a ball point pen, then installed the brake pin followed by the reinstallation of the sight base pin. I think this gives a more realistic look to the brake. As you can tell the Cold Blue wears off with time giving a nice patina and character to the weapon. This brake install has held up now for over 1000 rds.
