I replaced the long screw that holds the pistol grip with a long post with a large washer and piece of scewed rod in the top and a tapped hole in the bottom.
I then cut out the wood on a band saw and then drilled a hole through it so that it was a slide fit on the post.
The next step was to cut out a section on the top so that it slid up around the butt frame.
Then sarted to remove the unwanted wood with a " dremel " and kept checking the fit to my hand ( many times !!!)
Glue on the ally !!
Finish sanding , stipple the grip area and finaly varnish !!!
