DIY - BM Bugout alu frag handle mod

BM Bugout alu frag handle mod

I decided to mod my G10 Bugout clone with these cool aluminium frag handle scales. Since these aluminium scales were made for the original Bugout they needed some minor adjustment to fit my Chinese version. Although the project took more time what I expected I'm satisfied with the end result. These bead blasted alu handle scales feel great in the hand and the knife weights only 2.3 oz (65g)!  

Have look at my video on my YouTube channel:

You can buy them on Aliexpress

Step 3: some minor adjustments
- sanding the head of the female pivot screw to a slightly
 smaller diameter in order to fit the new alu handle perfectly
- replacing the original pocket clip screws to slightly bigger ones
- drilling the middle holes and the stop pin holes slightly bigger on the handles

The middle handle screw and the pivot screw fit perfectly:
