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. See HOW TO MAKE A TRACING
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. What I send is a grip that matches or is a little larger than the dimensions given for each
grip listed. That way, a little sanding with a fingernail sanding board will get the grip outline to match your particular gun frame perfectly. It's easy to do, just takes a little patience.
One way to select the grips for your 1859 or 1875 model quickly is to measure the base of your existing
grip or gun frame, 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, you can look at 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 that the grip is large
enough to allow for fitting. I DO NOT FIT THE GRIP TO YOUR GUN! I don't have your gun. Only
YOU can do that, as thousands of other satisfied buyers have done before you (a few are shown on the
customer gun page here (EXAMPLE GUNS...) You will
be proud of your own custom hand fitted grips and save money over paying someone else to fit them.
Please Note: I make all the grips by hand and receive so many orders that custom made grip delivery takes an average 3-4 months.
Stock items (medallions, screws, specials) usually ship within 10 days.
I can't promise a specific ship date, as it will vary with circumstances. If you can't wait, please don't order! I'm working as fast as possible.
Be SURE to read the TERMS of SALE page, so you KNOW what you are getting.
Always 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!
