Point blank measurement chart

Postby 5bites » Sun Sep 02, 2018 6:53 pm

Am I loosing my mind or was there a diameter chart somewhere that listed the diameter at different places down the blank?

:roll: Oh i misread topic! Still havent seen any others than MHX and it's not 100% proof either.. If you want to get right size seat/winding checks, you need make two orders. :? 1st measure blank, then order parts.

At one time point blank listed ccs (commen cents system) values and I think also rda values. I don't see them listed anymore. If they posted the chart you want in the past, I think you may be able to get the information you want by contacting them.

The area on a Point Blank that you use for the grip area is much straighter, (minor taper) than the average blank.

Estimate around .75 mm drop in diameter over the first 12 - 14 inches of the butt. That's about a close as we can get due to other changing parameters.
