    You know Hawg, one thing I did to my Saber that also helps with narrowing the grip, was that I took the rubber that surrounds it off, cut the rubber off so that just the inserts were left, and glued those back in. It's essentially like shooting of the riser, but there is a little bit of comfort on the sides...

    I did some grip inserts on my Cheetah that was pretty cool. I printed the Martin logo off the computer, traced the grip around it and cut to fit. Then I did the same thing with some clear plexiglass and put over top. Not sure if my pics are still on here or not. I'll look.

    Here's what I'm looking at doing. the red line nearest the left hole closest to the arrow shelf is a bit off. It shouldn't end up being that close,but if it is,I'll just forget this idea or have that hole filled somehow. I won't know until I get it down to bare metal,though. We'll see what happens. No,I'm not crazy. this can be done safely and effectively. I don't recommend doing this without some experience in welding and metal work.

    I hate Dremels. Band saw or flap disc on an angle grinder. I'll be doing a build thread for the Bengal. I'm calling a couple places tomorrow in hopes of having some custom decals done for the limbs.
