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 is actually from a grip for a non-firing replica Peacemaker but it is entirely suited to firearms which fit the dimensions. It is only 0.33 inches thick at the top, and 0.53 inches thick at the base, similar to the so-called "gunfighter" slim grips.

This is a smooth, non-checkered grip designed as a 3-piece kit to assemble into a 1-piece grip (which means your gun must have a removable backstrap like the original Colt). If you like this grip, and it fits your gun, but your grip frame is solid, just order it with the optional screw kit and holes by checking the appropriate boxes.

  • (C) Width across base = 2.13 inch
  • (D) Midpoint of front edge to rear edge = 1.8 inch
  • (E) Flat on top = 1.16 inch
  • (F) Height of screw hole, if applied: 1.55 inch

Please note that this grip is not available with checkering on it. If you send me a note to "add checkering", what you are asking me to do is spend several days cutting new checkering on a smooth grip, then making a mold with that model grip, and finally, casting the new grip for you. It's several days solid work plus with a week or so for various sealers to dry and the mold to cure. I don't really think I can do it for the price listed here!

Dave Corbin Please Note: I make all the grips by hand and receive so many orders that custom made grip delivery takes an average 45-60 days.
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!
