Reshaped

I reshaped the grip. Took about an hour. I scribed a line straight along the back strap. I started with cross wise saw cuts then moved to a small belt sander and files. I had to take off a bit more than expected due to some casting porosity. Sanded the grips to shape. It feels good. I don't know if it looks more authentic.
