The are one-piece, so there's not much space to get a tool in to remove material, plus, it's sometimes hard to figure out just where they don't fit.

What I do: cut a bunch of slips of paper or various widths, slip them into where you suspect the interference is and assemble the grips in the frame. Tug on the paper. The ones that come out ... that ain't it. Those that are pinned, that's where the material needs to be removed.

case: what bullets go in
