Hawes/Sauer & Sohn/Great Western

Although, for ease of identification, this is called the "Hawes" category, most of the guns which use these grips are made in Germany by the firm of Sauer & Sohn under a variety of import or trade names, or by Herbert Schmidt (such as the Hy Hunter line). Included are guns imported by E.M.F. and E.A.A. (European American Armory) of the "Western" style, such as Colt clones and early double derringers. (These import firms also bring in modern autoloaders which may be listed in "Other Manufacturers".)

Hawes is a trade name applied to some of the imports. The guns are generally of good quality and are well made copies, with some dimensional differences, of the Colt Model P Peacemaker or 1873 Single Action Army model. Some are only loosely based on this historic gun, and have smaller frames. Most of the guns have some difference in the shape or size of the grip frame from the original Colt 1873, but then again, so did the original Colts vary from one to another!

Pay more attention to the general shape and dimensions given than to the brand name attached to a given grip number. I've found that quite often one of these grips would fit an entirely different brand (but still a "Colt SAA Clone" in general terms). Even more often, you can find one of these grips that is just about perfect for another make and model of gun, except that it has a taller or longer top. No problem! That's easy to adjust: a disk sander will make quick work of 0.4 down to 0.1 inches of extra length or width at the top, and then you can gently bring it to perfect size with a medium grit fingernail sanding board. Don't try to finish the size with any kind of power tool: you need to hand sand the last 1/32 or so in order to avoid accidently zipping away just a touch too much!

To perfectly fit a grip, press the grip against the frame and use a sharp pencil to trace around the frame. Then sand to the pencil line. Put a layer of cellophane tape on frame to protect it, mount the grip , and carefully sand until your sanding board starts to scuff the tape. That's it! You'll have a better-than-factory fit in a few minutes. Well, maybe 45 to 60 minutes... you could call that "a few". Point is, it isn't hard work. Just take it easy, take a few strokes and hold the grip to the gun until you get it close, and then finish it up, buff and wax. You'll be proud of your work.

Dave Corbin 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! Do NOT send your original grips or gun!
