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 smooth, thicker version of the Colt Mustang grip. It provides a more hand-filling hold than the standard thinner factory grip, and looks great with pearl, amber, walnut burl, opal and other translucent effects.

The grip was patterned after a modern (2012) production model of the Mustang Pocketlight. It may fit other versions, but the only way to make sure is to send a tracing drawn around your existing grips on a 3 x 5 index card with the screw holes accurately marked. There are tolerances and variations in the same model of most guns, especially those which are not standard military issue. Whereas a 1911 Colt uses the same screw size, it is highly specified and standardized for grip screw location. Civilian models tend to vary with time, replacement production fixtures, little tweaks in the design, and just plain old manufacturing tolerances. Want to get it right the first time? A tracing can save the day.

white Mustang grip This grip is especially good for medallions, pearl effects, and for people who have some scrimshaw or carving skills to apply. The material is easier to carve than wood, bone, or ivory and has no grain to split or chip.

I like a somewhat thicker grip on a small gun, and don't think it makes much different at all to the "print" of the gun through concealment clothing. But if you want the absolute thinnest grip that still works, choose the checkered one instead. This grip has just a bit of a contour to help you control the gun instinctively.
