Grips

Can anyone tell me what tool is needed to tighten the grips on a Ultra Carry CDP 11. Thanks for your help!

You'll need a 3/32" allen head wrench but before you crank down on the screws head over to a home center or hardware store and pick up some #60 rubber o-rings. Place an o-ring under the head of the screws and snug them down, don't go crazy tightening them. The o-ring will act like a lock washer and keep the screws from backing out.

Or get the best. Buy set of the Challis grip bushings. Has a oring on bushing and oring for your screws. My G10 grips never come loose.
