Grip Mounting Hardware

If you've ever built your own grips and tried to find appropriate mounting hardware, especially the brass press-in knurled nuts and ferrules, you probably discovered that universal hardware is very difficult to find.

Guns which have threaded holes in the frame or special through-the-back or underside mountings will need to be used with their own screws. Those are specific as to thread, length, diameter, head size and thickness. But for grips held on by a single screw going through one panel, passing through a hole in the frame, and threading into a captive nut in the opposite panel, there is no restriction except they need to be strong and long enough. You can cut the screws shorter to fit almost any gun.

I offer this kind of mounting kit in 5-40, 4-40 and 2-56 size. The brass ferrules look nice and fit into 0.2 inch diameter holes (for the No.2) and 0.25 inch diameter holes (for the No.4 and No.5). The No.2 and No.4 are made so they can be used in very thin grips. A set of instructions for installation comes with each shipment. The screws are 8-18 Stainless Steel, slotted fillister head unless otherwise noted on the listing.

Here is a guide to choosing the right kit:
Pocket pistols, Ruger insert panels, thin autos, Colt 1903 and Browning 1906-1910, Derringer style handguns which use a single screw, and other thin or fancy decorated grips of medium or small size No.2 (2-56) Screw Kit
Most single actions, standard and full sized double actions, and a very few kinds of autoloaders which use a single mounting screw (most use their own screws matching threads in the frame) No.4 (4-40) Screw Kit
For grips with oversized screw hole or to correct the alignment if you happened to drill a smaller set of holes slightly off from each other No.5 (5-40) Screw Kit


NOTE: I offer individual screws in various sizes and lengths, no minimum order amount, but the minimum shipping is still a flat rate. If you want a part that costs less than a dollar, it makes good sense to combine this with other items or to order a quantity. That way, the shipping cost is more reasonable for the value of goods ordered. But it's up to you and I will ship a 19 cent part if that's all you want. Still have to use priority mail with delivery confirmation...

Other Colors/Finishes


I don't offer gold plated or black oxide screws for this reason: the screws are universal in the sense that you mark and cut off the end to match your gun and grip thickness. Doing that would leave a bright silver end and negate the value of having expensive black oxide on stainless. If you look at the example guns shown on this website, you will see that the little silver dot that is the small screw head or tip hardly shows anyway, and looks quite nice with the surrounding thin brass ferrule or nut. Demand for anything else is below the threshold of being affordable to make and carry in stock.

If you want a special screw in enough quantity to justify making it, let me know! Minimum volume to develop a new CNC-machined or special finish treated product is 5,000 units, and of course the price drops quite a bit if you can use 10,000 or 50,000 instead. I have the 4-40 and 2-56 kits priced for making them in 50,000 lots, to give you an idea of cost versus volume (and I sell them in 1 or 5 pack quantity so you can benefit from the volume of sales created by other buyers without having to buy 50,000 units yourself).

Likewise, if you have a need for 5,000 or more special finished screws, such as gold plated, black oxide finished, or special silver or black finished brass inserts, I can quote that (less would cost too much each to be practical). You can email me at Dave@TombstoneGrips.com.


Please Note: I get so many orders every day that I am constantly 3-4 months backlogged.
If you cannot wait, please do not order! I'm working as fast as I can.
(Hardware, medallions, and specials are usually sent sooner, however.)


Be SURE to read the TERMS of SALE page, so you KNOW what you are getting.

Be SURE to compare listed measurements OR send a tracing of original grip or gun frame.
Do NOT order just by description, since the same model and make can vary in actual size and shape of grip frame!
