Re: XP - Center grip or rear grip

Len

I agree with everyone about the center grip but it does
have one drawback (the trigger link) it can be troublesome
with a real lite trigger.

I have a 7-08 with a heavy 16" ss hart and found 3" to 4"
of eye relief was not enough so I went to an intermediate
eye relief 2 x 7 burris, very tough and works great.

I also have a 444 marlin in a 14" barreled contender by JDJ
and due to very heavy recoil I use a 3x burris long eye relief and 4 scope rings(kept shearing off the 3rd ring on a
3 ring redfield set up).

I find both intermediate and long eye relief scopes perform
well so be carefull if you decide to use a rifel scope with
a heavy recoiling pistol.

Just my 2 cents

    This Fajen works well in my .35 Remington. It balances and handles recoil very well. Bill T.

    I too like the center grip, (HS), owned a couple of weatherby rear grips and sold them. just didn't like the feel or the accuracy.

    The only thing I don't like about the center grip is all the spaghetti that connects the trigger to the sear. Bill T.

    Go to a local silhouette match and see if someone has a Mike Dewey or Dell Taylor trigger setup in their gun and I'll bet they'll let you try it, very nice down to 4 oz.
