Just copy the original panels and you wont have any problems...nor will I.
    Awesome thanks for the reply and knowledge. Good thing I was planning routing the inside of.the.panels.

    Ditto this for me (same question posed on p.1). I just looked over my stock rubber grips tonight and noticed the recess for the solenoid mount screw. I don't quite understand why there's the necessity of the tiny lip around the edge of the panel, but it's not that difficult to replicate so I'll just play it safe and add that feature into my wood grips when I make them. Thanks for the heads up Tuna.

    The emag panel is raised a bit. It provides clearance for the parts inside the frame. As long as a cover is built so that it does not apply side force and interfere with the free operation of the moving parts in the grip, it will be fine.
    Except for the Automag in front, its usually the man behind the equipment that counts.

    This is way more than necessary, but all you need is a cavity on the in side of the panels, they dont need to be raised like the stock ones.

    2- Grip makers! If you cannot copy the specs of an Emag Grip Panel then please do us all a favor and stop making them....
    I had issues with DarkSeoul back when he was making his grips.
    They were really nice grip for a lot of guns.
    I picked up a pair of see thru blue grips for a blue fade anno xmag I have, and the grips didn't have a pocket in them for the bolt head to stick up, making the whole grip panel stick up. I ended up having to hollow it out to get the panel to sit flat. Complained to him, and he ended up ranting at me that he'd tested it with some other AOer and that they were fine the way they were. Which obviously they weren't or I wouldn't have had to modify mine.

    But very nice grips other than that.
