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 a checkered grip with the molded-in Colt logo, for the Colt Mustang Pocketlite .380 pocket auto, patterned after a current production grip.

Colt Mustang The grips have the same kind of screw holes as a 1911 Colt except they are not relieved from the rear for a 1/4-inch mounting post. They mount flat on the frame with two 0.150-diameter screws with the standard .280 head diameter.

The grips look best with medallions that are 5/8-inch or 1/2- inch, mounted where the Colt logo is molded. The larger medallions take up too much space and tend to project too much on the edges or must be sunk too deeply to look good.

If you want pearl or other swirled, translucent effects, like amber or opal, please select the smooth version instead of this checkered set! Checkered grips obscure the patterns in pearl-like materials and really don't look as good as a smooth grip.

If there is any doubt about whether your gun might work with this set of grips, please make a pencil tracing around your existing grips, on a 3 x 5 index card, mark the screw holes clearly, and mail it to me. I can use it as a gauge to make sure the spacing of holes and the shape and size of this grip will work with your gun (or at least with the outline you send me, which I have to assume is reasonably accurate).

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!
