Phoenix HP22 Grips
Hi all, I'm new here and just getting back into shooting after quite a few years away from it. My son is looking at going into the Navy and realized that I hadn't really got him into doing much shooting, so we've both taken up going to the range and enjoying some plinking.
All I've had for years is a Ruger Bearcat .22 and was wanting a semi-auto, so I picked up one of the Phoenix HP-22's at the local shop. I know some haven't had good luck with these, but I seem to have a good one, no jams and only a couple of FTE's with it, mostly due to the cheap ammo. I ended up buying the 5" barrel for it recently and the slide would jam half way through open and close, so after a lot of filing, I've got it working pretty well and have to say that it's pretty accurate. At 25' all 10 rounds were in a 1" group. I've since picked up a Ruger SR9 and also gotten my wife into plinking.
Anyway, I was looking for grips for the HP22, but not able to find any. Being that do quite a bit of woodworking, I decided to make my own. These are out of tiger maple, finished with lin-speed.
