Aimtech grip mount/trigger questions

Post by hp246 on Sat Oct 07, 2017 5:52 pm

I just put an Aimtech Grip mount on my 52 no dash.  Didn't want to cut up this gun.  Put a Matchdot II on the mount.  The mount installs in place of the right hand grip panel and one screw replaces the trigger pin and a second screw replaces the mainspring pin.  When I first got it together, I noticed that the trigger was affected by the trigger screw.  The trigger locked up.  I backed it off a turn and a half, and no problem.  Went out to sight the gun in this afternoon and about halfway through 50 rounds I had a pair go off.  Never had that happen before.  It was not uncontrollable and did not run  through a full magazine, just the two rounds.  It did not happen again the rest of the way through the box.  I guess it could have been me, but I don't think so.  Is there any known issue with this mount having that effect?  WIll give Aimtech a call first thing Monday, but thought I would throw it out here for discussion.

You may also want to be ready for disappointment if you have one with a nice finish.  I know several (mine included) that ended up with blemishes from the mounting points.

Not worried about that.  This gun has been heavily used since it was built in 1963.  I just find the dot easier on my eyes.

I had one on my 52-2 it was a Leupold it put the dot way to high above the bore.  Using a B Square mount that fits in the rear sight dovetail cut.  I really like it.  Don

I still shoot a couple matches that require iron sights at 25 yards.  I'm only shooting at 50 with the dot.  This way, I don't have to put the sight back on and re-sight.
