So I ordered up a spare frame from Bersa. Oddly, they list it as the "grip catch". The mag catch parts are separate, so it must mean the frame, as evidenced by the parts list in the manual as well. I also ordered some Devcon plastic welder. I will post here with the work once I am done, maybe you guys can critique my work as well?

So I got the new frames in. I'm still waiting on the plastic welder, but I thought I would go ahead and start grinding away at one frame to get a feel for how much I can grind away. Below are some pictures detailing the experimentation. As soon as I get the plastic welder in, I can go ahead and start working on the other frame.

I can actually go a lot further than the pictures would suggest. The only reason I stopped was because I didn't have the plastic welder. Otherwise, those gaps you see in the frame would be filled with epoxy.

Interesting. Not to be overly critical, but what are you looking to accomplish?

I am looking to reduce the grip a bit. I find the current shape of the grip to be really uncomfortable, I want to round it a bit more. If you check out the website Polymer Grip Profiling, there is a Bp9cc in there that shows pretty much exactly what I want to do.

Already have those. Still does not completely solve the problem. And at only 4 bucks per frame, why not?:tongue:

I've heard of plastic welding. Can you direct me to any pertinent videos? Also, you have to use glass-filled nylon for filler ideally, correct? How much is a plastic welding setup capable of doing this kind of work? I'm fine with my BP9, but I have an M&P I'd like to play around with.

Hey ruchik did you already finish the grip reduction. If so can you post pics?The bp9 on Paul's site is mine.Before his site went down he forgot to post the pic with the trigger guard undercut.

If the grip was uncomfortable, and slip-ons didn't work, why not sell it and get a gun that fits? Also, what only costs $4?

I think he is talking about the Grip Frame. They were $4.00 now there price is $85.00. When they were selling them for $4, I think someone messed up big time.

If your planing on doing a grip reduction I posted a few items FS for the BP9CC in the classified section. including a Grip Frame. don't mess up your original frame.
