    Is there any kind of covering you can put on a grip to reuce the distance between the grip & the trigger, may have to get 1/4" closer. Doesn't have to be a covering, maybe a phenolic extension, similar to the material used on a grip cap. Thanks.

    Bondo could work.

    Copied from another thread:

    I have the conventional MX3 not the Special and it shoots Top barrel first. I don't need a selector or an adjustable trigger but I am planning on trading just the trigger (not the assembly) with a buddy who has a trigger that sets further back in the trigger guard and figuratively reduces the LOP. The LOP is actually just right but the way my hand fits the pistol grip of the stock, sometimes only the tip of my finger contacts the trigger and I don't like that. Does anyone know if this trigger part is available as a stock item ??

    I wrapped some tennis racket tape around the pistol grip and it makes the grip less slippery and provides a 'poor man's palm swell' but does not do a thing for fixing the distance between the grip and the trigger.

    simple answer, yes, their is a grip pad made that glues on the grip. Unfortunately, I don't recall who makes it...

    Lou- You did not mention what type of gun. If it happens to be a K-80, you can loosen one screw and slide the trigger forward of back.

    I used this expoxy to build up my PFS to shorten the grip length increase the palmswell and ended up with custom molded fingergrip to boot. A quality stock man or fine woodwooker could inlay an extension or dove tail joint it. sorry no pics at this time

    also wenig could make you a semi inletted stock with a reduced grip length. Simular<a href="http://s160.photobucket.com/albums/t196/jrm7800/?action=view&current=100_0040-2.jpg" target="_blank">[​IMG]</a> to the New American stock ladies model

    Brownell's used to carry the grip adapter that you are looking for, it comes in several thicknesses. I had them on my Brownings. Call the tech center, and they will help you.
