Optional note:
Are you sending a tracing?:
YES! I want to assure proper size/shape. Tombstone is responsible for fit to tracing. Tracing will show hole pattern. **************************************
NO. I will be responsible if I choose the wrong size grip. I will measure my gun and compare to the listed specs. If I order a grip that is the wrong size or shape, I agree that it is NOT returnable. *****************************************************
I already mailed a tracing BEFORE I placed this order.
This checkered grip is similar to the smooth 26b Banker's Special. In fact, the guns are based on the same frame and the grips will interchange.

This is an early square butt with rounded corners. It won't fit a short framed round butt revolver. This gun was chambered in the more powerful 38 S&W Special caliber, whereas earlier models based on the same frame used less powerful, shorter cartridges. Hence the "Special" in the name.

In 1928 Colt introduced the Bankers Special in .38 New Police caliber. Production ended in 1943. All Bankers Specials were produced in 2" barrels. The factory grips were checkered walnut, although ivory and pearl grips were available on special order.

The .38 started out as a square butt revolver but changed over to round butt only in 1934. The 38 cylinder length is 1 1/4" as compared to the 1 5/8" cylinder length of the Detective Special. No Bankers Specials were produced in the longer 38 S&W round with the 1 5/8" cylinder. The Bankers Special fires the .38 NP round, therefore the shorter cylinder.

In 1933, the .22 caliber was introduced. Production of the .22 cal continued through 1934. None produced in 1935. Almost all .22 cal were produced in 1934, very few in 1933. All 22's were produced in round butt only.

  • Width across base (maximum width) = 1.6 inches
  • Width across base (flat area only) = 1.1 inches
  • Overall height = 3.0 inches
  • Screw hole height (center line) = 1.35 inches
  • Width across screw hole = 1.25 inches
  • Width across round top (widest point) = 1.0 inch

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!
