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.
Optional note:
This is a very large grip for one of the Uberti 1860 Army replicas. It is much larger than the original Colt grip, and even larger than the "oversized" 1860 Uberti model 60c. Be sure to compare your gun frame dimensions with the specs shown below. Of course, on the plus side, if you order a grip that is too large, you can always cut, file, or sand it smaller! It's just that you don't want to do that any more than necessary for a perfect fit.

This grip can also be used as a "blank" or generic starting point to make a lot of other similar single action grips if you don't mind the re-shaping and sanding involved. The material itself is strong, yet easily worked. You can sand, file, saw, and drill it more easily than wood, because it has no grain to split and crack.

Size Diagram
  • Overall height(B) = 3.63 inches
  • Front edge (A) = 0.994 inches
  • Width of base (C) = 2.45 inches
  • Middle of front edge to rear edge (D) = 1.74 inches
  • Thickness near base = 0.625 inches
  • Thickness near top = 0.375 inches

Note: If you want to order a 2-piece screw mounted kit, be SURE you send a pencil tracing that shows WHERE you want the screw hole! If you order a 2-piece, screw-mount kit and do NOT send a pencil tracing with the screw hole indicated, then you agree to accept the standard location that I must use instead. It may or may not position the screw properly for your particular gun, even if it is a Uberti 1860 Army: they differ.

The Uberti hammer spring and frame leaves a moderate amount of room for the spacer, and this spacer is made to take advantage of the long backstrap area as a bearing surface. One-piece grips are clamped in place by being pressed against the top of the frame, and the front edge, from pressure against the bottom and back edge of the interior spacer block.

You will want to sand the spacer to fit it exactly to the inside of the backstrap both at the bottom and rear edge, and then epoxy cement the spacer on one grip panel to align it with the frame. Then after the cement has cured, sand the spacer block to the exact thickness of your gun frame, and epoxy the other panel in place to create a 1-piece grip. This kind of grip ONLY works on guns which have a removable back strap (not on solid grip frame guns like the Rugers, for instance).

You can also choose to mount the grip with a screw. In that case, a pin or spacer should also be used to bear against the inside base of the backstrap, or in the solid rear corner of the backstrap, so the grip will not slip. Most guns that were built for a screw mounted, 2-panel grip have a pin in the frame which aligns with a hole in the back of the grip. If your gun does not have an alignment pin, then using a 1/8-inch or 3/16-inch diameter dowel pin pressed into a shallow hole you make in the grip back, so that the pin presses firmly against the inside of the frame, will work. You may need two pins, one against the base and one against the back of the frame, to keep it from moving under heavy recoil. Use a small dental bur instead of a twist drill to make the hole, so the bit won't be pulled through the grip accidently (or use a drill press to control depth).
