Remington 1858 New Army revolvers come with a bewiltering variety of different grip frame shapes and sizes. The only good way to make sure the shape and size actually fit your gun is to send a pencil tracing or a cut-out stiff paper template that fits
your gun, so that I can match it to the nearest larger grip. You can compare measurements, of course, to get the best match
"by the numbers". Do not simply assume that the same brand and model name will fit your gun: Uberti grips sometimes fit
better on certain Armi San Paolo replicas, and some Pietta grips actually fit certain Uberti guns. Sometimes you can take the grips off five different Piettas, all from the same shipment, and none of the grips will fit any of the other guns properly.
This is just the nature of the hand-fitting required, and is a good reason why Tombstone Grip Kits give you both a better
value and a better fit, provided you choose accurately or send a template or tracing! The compound curves have to match, and
the width and height both of the grip need to match. The rounded dome at the top as well as both "steps" need to fit the
frame. A little sanding with a fingernail sanding board or fine file will work well as long as you start with a large enough
One way to select the grips for your 1859 or 1875 model quickly is to measure the base of your existing grip, then
measure the height from that base to the rear corner (90 degrees to the base) and also to the front corner. With these three
numbers at hand, you can open each listing and quickly check the specifications given. If any of the three dimensions
listed is shorter than those for your gun, skip that listing and look at another. When you find a grip with the same or
larger dimensions, write down the catalog number, and look for another that is even closer to the size of your gun. When you find the one which is closest to your gun, and has the pattern or design you like (smooth, stag, etc.), you've found
the best grip to order! Still, it is wise to send a tracing just to make sure.
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!
