Arrow Warped Grips?

Has anyone tried and had any success with taking out the warps in the brown one piece grips on an old PPK? I have repaired a few plastic items using a heat gun before but do not want to ruin a perfect set of grips that are just slightly warped at the top. Also what do most use to highlight the walther markings and S/N's in white on some of the pistols I have seen here? Thanks for any information, TJ

It seems to me that there was some discussion of the topic of repairing warped grips on the P.38 Forum awhile back; you might want to drop in over there and run a search on the topic.

OK, three minutes later and I just checked and did find the thread, but I can't get the specific link to it, for some reason. So go here ...

... and then run a search on PPK warped grip repair. you might just find something that will help.

Thanks, Me109G4 ( I am probably one of the few who know what your handle is and what it refers to.)

Thanks again Searcher 451, Found the thread on repairing the grips. Just as I thought, A very careful use of a heat gun and clamping in a wooden form, both inside and outside will take care of the warped grips. Just have to be careful about the heat. I have done this on fiberglass fuselages for my model airplanes with good results in the past. TJ

Excellent. Do keep us posted on the results. Post a photo or two if you can, in fact. We always like to see pictures.

Good luck.

The Me109G4's a WWII German fighter...is there something else we're missing?

Oh...the pilots carried PPK's too...

Handle for Me109G4

Me109G4 must be an airplane nut as I am. There were very many Variants of the Me109 or Bf109 as some call them. Many people do not know what a Me or Bf 109 is. And Most German Pilots carried the PPK or PP.
