Is there anyone who has an extra set of grips for sale? I found someone to make carbon fiber grips for my Boberg, but he needs a set of grips for a pattern, and I don't want to leave my gun out of…Continue

I had contacted Bond Arms last week to see if I could purchase an XR9-L unlock block. I thought that would be the most likely piece to fail. Just got a response from Bond customer service that…Continue

"After owning over 200 pistols and revolvers and not having this kind of trouble, I just do not expect it.
I shoot Wildey's, Auto Mags, LAR Grizzly's, Raging Bulls, and 500 S&W. All these guns have large grips. I bought the XR45…"
"yupper... there are a group of folks out there that have what we referred to as "tom thumb"
outstretch your hand and look at your thumb... you have two "knuckles" on your thumb. one that is at the very base and one just below…"
"Mark is a good guy and knows what is going on. LRE just were not a problem for me.
As a side note, Mark also told me that the gun beating on my thumb joint is not a problem with the gun, it is a hand problem. Tell that to all the guys on…"
"My LREs seem to be at least partially magazine related. I.e.: no LREs at all with some magazines, more than a few with other mags. Nevertheless it does seem likely that, as Mark has made abundantly clear, the root cause is malformed internal fixed…"
You have more experience than I on the subject but all I know is what has happened to me.
No LRE's with my 9mm Boberg's.
The 5 or 6 LRE's that happened with my 45's out of 800 to 1000 rounds occurred when I am fairly certain…"
"do not forget, the 9mm suffers from LRE just as the .45s do!
the LRE's are not created by grip what-so ever. we have proven this in a test environment. you will not get LRE's if the internal extractor is properly gripping the case…"
"The reason for the hump if I remember right was Arne wanted it there to absorb recoil, I think he called it the trampoline affect.
The XDS45 is actually a tiny bit lighter and even with 230 grain +P, recoil is entirely controllable for me. I…"
We are in complete agreement. My issue with the back strap is to solve the trigger reach problem. It could be solved either by replaceable backstraps like Glock or simply replacement grips with less bulge."
"The pull length of the trigger is just too long for even a person with average sized hands in my opinion. All the major gun companies are recognizing this with replacement backstraps and the government and government agencies are…"
"Just out of curiosity, Bob, what aspects of the 45 do you think need re-design. If It were up to me, I would vote for fixing the LRE problem, a less pronounced curve in the back strap area of the grips, and I see no reason for Boberg's…"
I also sent the grips out to have a pattern made for carbon fiber grips, so it will be a while before I shoot the XR9-L. If that works out, I'll post photos again, and there may be an outlet for anyone who wants custom grips to buy some."
"Just got the parts for my XR9-L back from Robar. The locking block and barrel in the picture were treated with NP3. The short barrel is from my XR9-L (untreated). The cost was $50 for the barrel and $30 for the locking block."
