Yes it did. You really have to use rough then medium and finally fine grade sand paper to get all the gouges (from the rasp) and scratches from the courser grip papers but eventually it comes up really smooth.
I really posted to encourage others that find that their Scorpion is too wide.

What is your hand size sir? Have one scorpion in line and worried about having small, thin hands. Approx 7" middle finger tip to wrist.
From tip of my middle finger to my wrist (first crease in line with bade of thumb) is 7 inches. The (comfortable) gap between my index finger and thumb (when I'm holding the Scorpion) is 2 1/2 inches, which is the width I now have on my Scorpion after customizing it.

Thank you! Looks like the incoming Scorpion is going to be on the wide side. :(

You'll be fine, adapt and overcome.

Once you get used to it, the Scorpion is really consistently accurate.

I had to do the same with my Hathcock Target Sniper (old model). However, still remains a large SS, in the meanwhile I switched to much smaller ones made by myself, so I don't shot the HTS anymore.

I just adjusted my scorpion as well. I liked the ppmg size so I scaled it to match

Nice work. I agree my scorpion is a smidge on the wide side. Perhaps I'll get up the courage to make some mods...
