Weighting a Service Pistol for CMP

Post by Soupy44 on 11/2/2018, 10:34 am

I'm curious as to the limits of increasing the weight of a service pistol. I've read the rules, but am unsure which of the following crossed the line:

- Lead tape on the grip externally
- Lead tape on the grip slabs internally
- Wheel weights on interior of the grip
- Weights in the magazine

And does anyone have any other methods for increasing the pistol weight?

Thanks!

I'm sure there were those that felt it necessary to try and increase the weight when we had to shoot hardball, but since the rules allow reloads of just about any configuration, I don't see the point.

I'm 6ft 2in and about 210lbs. I really enjoyed the extra weight I put on my 22 when I added a dot and ergonomic grip with weights in it. I also have a 1/2oz wheel weight in each magazine and I'm in contact with someone to possibly cast weights that will make better use of the space in the magazine below what is needed to load 5 rounds.

I'm sure some of my want for this is partly due to my grip being a bit weaker than recommended. Just want to give it a try and learn from it...without breaking any rules.

What you suggested in your first post is really contrary to the spirit of the rules.  Metal grip panels are still not allowed.  Bumper pads were not allowed until recently because guys could add weight to them.  Putting weights in the bottom of your magazines would be frowned upon if you were caught.

g) Pistols must have standard, symmetrical grips of wood or synthetic material with no palm swell or thumb rest. Weighted grips, metal grips and Pachmayr-style wrap-around grips are not permitted. The stock must be functionally identical for right or left-hand use.
