  • Solid Color Options You can select a solid color for any Tombstone Gun Grip. The colors are molded into the material, all the way through, so you can sand and shape the grip without loss of color. From the traditional simulated rubber black or shiny ebony black to wild hot pink, lime green or turquoise blue, you can customize your gun with a color matches original tradition or your own ideas! Tombstone Grips are economical enough so you can afford more than one color, for different purposes: bright yellow makes the gun easy to locate in dim light; grey or olive makes the gun blend better with a suit.

  • Medallions Any grip with sufficient space can have a medallion mounted on both grip panels. This looks especially nice on a plain grip, or in place of a factory logo. Medallions are made of heavy duty silver base with gold accents, and are mounted permanently in the grip so that all edges are just at or below the grip curvature. Some grips with heavy carving or insufficient area do not have the medallion option on their listing.

  • Translucent pearl effects such as traditional white pearl, pink pearl, black pearl, or many special shades including gold metallic or silver metallic can be added for a modest additional cost. The pearl grips are somewhat dull when you get them, but will buff up to a brilliant finish with deep shimmering colors (instructions for polishing and buffing are included with the grips). This small amount of additional work on your part will increase the value and appearance of your grips while saving a great deal of money over having them polished before shipping. In addition, since most grips need some sanding and fitting, it could be a waste of time (and money) to have them receive their final finish prior to fitting...you'd just have to do it again.


Colors may be chosen by name, or you can send a sample color swatch to match. Visit your local paint store and pick up a color chip to send. While I may not be able to match it exactly, I can get it close in most cases. Please note that your screen display will likely be somewhat different than others, including mine, so that the color you see could be slightly different from the actual grip. Natural ivory is slightly cream colored. Aged ivory is leans slightly toward the goldenrod shade with a hint of butternut. Extra aged has a deeper yellow shade. Light yellow is a pastel yellow without other shades in it, and medium or regular yellow is just a deeper intensity, while dark yellow is the most intense. The so-called "John Wayne" yellow has just a hint of orange.

Following the solid colors are the pearl and metallic effects, which are a different chemical composition and are in most cases a translucent look (you can see "into" them to various degrees: a bright light can be seen to glow through them, whereas the solid colors block light and are opaque). If you choose a solid color other than "ivory", and also choose a metallic or pearl effect, the solid color choice will be ignored -- it is either a solid or a translucent, not both! Leave the color at ivory if you want to choose one of the pearl/metallic effects instead of a solid color.

The gun used for illustrating grip colors is a Mauser 7.62mm blow-back operated pistol, chosen because of the plain, flat grip which will give you a good color comparison against a typical worn blued action.

Pearl and metallic effects are actually a translucent polymer with special filler such as ground pearl powders, gold dust, silver flour, atomized copper, and other materials that lend depth, color, and unique shading to the grips.

You can see "into" the various shades of pearl grips to various degrees: a bright light can be seen to glow through them, whereas the solid colors block light and are opaque. If you choose a solid color other than "ivory", and also choose a metallic or pearl effect, the solid color choice will be ignored -- it is either a solid or a translucent, not both! Leave the color at ivory if you want to choose one of the pearl/metallic effects instead of a solid color.
