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 1-piece (3 part kit) grip for the Uberti made, Navy Arms imported 1873 Colt Single Action Army model, this set copied from a 32-20 caliber model. It is slightly larger than the similar 116a model, so measure and see which will fit your gun best.

The grip comes standard with a spacer and two panels, which you fit to your gun and then epoxy glue the spacer to the backs to create a 1-piece grip. You can also order the grip as a 2-piece, screw mount version if you prefer.

The upper section of this grip is relatively narrow. It does not provide enough area for the larger medallions (3/4-in, 20mm, etc.) but works nicely with the 11/16, 5/8, 1/2 inch and so forth. The list of medallions provided leaves out the larger ones for that reason. It is possible to mount a larger medallion in the lower section, where your hand wraps around. Some people like this, some do not. I don't list the option but you can email and let me know. I can jsut add it manually add a larger medallion to your order, and put it in the lower portion of the grip.
