Grips for Davis Derringers, Lorcin autoloaders, and other handguns now produced by Cobra.
A number of relatively inexpensive handguns produced under other names are now owned by Cobra. Also, some of the Davis or Cobra
Derringer grips may fit brands exported under various trade names from German, Spanish or Belgian manufacturers. Most of these
grips are attached using a separate screw for each grip panel, which threads into a hole in the gun frame. You will need to use
the screws which came on your gun, or if these are not present, have a gunsmith determine the thread pitch and size and order
proper screws from the manufacturer or from a gunsmith supply house such as Brownells. The Tombstone grip mounting kits are
designed for guns which use a single screw through the frame, clamping both grips with a single screw. In some cases, you
may be able to use a single screw mounting, but the location must clear any frame parts and the hammer spring, and a hole must
be present (or you must drill one) through the frame.
There are so many variations of Derringers that it is impossible to know if any certain one would work with any of these
grips without getting a tracing from around your grips, or to tell
which ones might be able to use a single screw instead of the original two, without actually examining the gun. But you can
tell, because you have the gun. Just remove the grips and take a look. If there is a location where a single screw could pass through and not interfere with anything, then you can trace around your existing grips on a piece of stiff paper and indicate where the mounting screw should be located. It does not necessarily have to be the original location, unless the two screw
holes are aligned so you can see through them both.
