This is what I did to my Beretta 87T target pistol grip. I added a built up thumb rest with industrial grade epoxy putty. Full size Handall slip-on grip installed. Really helps. The Handall has a gap behind the grip when I put it on. Stuffed epoxy inside there too.

Our next match is Aug 2. Hope this helps me do better than last time.

og old!

og is old, 75, and can't focus both front and rear open sights anymore, bifocals don't get it. So reddot makes target shooting fun again.
And, a thumb rest is really a help during our informal competition keeping the pistol steady.
The 87T is Beretta's new replacement for their old 89 model which came with a really nice, custom, large, wood grip with finger grooves and the thumb rest. But the 89 grip won't fit the 87T. And the 89 came with no ramp for a scope. Beretta sells a wood grip without finger groove and only a small thumb groove for the 87T but at $82 it's too expensive for no improvement. One grip source quoted me $200 :p to make a custom grip for it, but wanted the pistol for 2 weeks. :evil:
With all the encouragement here at KTR with pistol mods, I felt this one would be easy. So far so good. Next match is 25yds, B8 target, NRA rules. Biggest competition is a friend with an 8" bull barrel Buckmark with a top quality reddot. Not too worried about the rest of the guys, mostly std. Buckmarks with BSA reddots. And one with a conversion unit for his 1911, with a homemade scope mount.
Plus, my advantage is I know which match ammo holds a group for me. The rest use garden variety stuff like Rem and Fed bulk paks.
Also, I practice. Hope they don't!! :shock:
