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 an oversized grip for the Uberti (and possibly other) versions of the Walker Colt. You'd think that as rare as a Walker is in the real version, any copy would be faithful to the shape and size of the original. You'd be wrong.

As with so many other "clones", there are about as many variations in size as there are copies. I have made three different molds, so far, to try and match as many of these versions as possible. This one is large enough so that you probably can sand it a little to fit just about any of the variations. But the only way to know for sure is to make a pencil tracing on a 3 x 5 index card around the outside of your grip frame, or the backside of your grips, and mail it to me. I can use that to gauge the size/shape and see if there's any chance what I have will work.

If not, I can probably add yet another mold, eventually. But it saves you return shipping costs if you can send the tracing first, and let me see if the grip you ordered is the grip you actually need. A little too big is no problem at all. You just sand the edges to fit. A little too small? You guessed it...can't sand it bigger!

This grip is made only in the 3-piece style (spacer and two grip panels). You sand the panels to fit your gun, and then fit the spacer to the gap inside the frame behind the hammer spring, making sure the spring can flex without interference. Then hold one grip panel to the gun in the right position, mark the inside of the frame on the back of the grip, and epoxy glue the spacer to the grip. Before the glue sets, make sure the spacer and grip still align the way you want on the gun frame and "tweak" the position slightly if not. Let the epoxy cure for several hours even if it is "5-minute" epoxy.

Then sand the thickness of the spacer so it is flat and exactly the thickness of your gun's frame. (Make sure before you get this far that it is thick enough, not already too thin. If it is, email me and I'll send you a thicker spacer, no problem. We work things out, you and I, so the grip fits when you are done. People of good will can always solve problems with a little communication.)

Gun frames vary in thickness, sometimes even in the same model made at different times or by different contractors. But I try to provide a spacer that is plenty thick enough. It is easy to sand once attached to one grip panel. That makes a dandy handle for holding and moving the spacer over a tacked-down piece of sandpaper to adjust the thickness.

When the spacer is the right thickness, put the grip back on the gun and epoxy the other panel to the spacer. Of course, the gun must have a removable back strap for this to work or you can't ever take the grip off again! That is why the one-piece style is only used with Colts that don't have a more modern solid grip frame. Rugers and other more modern guns with solid frames would require some kind of tricky locking mechanism to eliminate the standard grip screw. I've seen that done and it is technically feasible, but kind of expensive as an alternative for the grip screw.

On the old style Colts, like the Walker, the removable frame section makes it practical to create a 1-piece grip from this 3-part kit. It is more authentic even if the size or shape of the grip frame isn't exactly a true copy of the original in most clones.
