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 grip is made for the Freedom Arms Model 1997 (M97) small frame revolver. Be sure to compare your gun with the measurements provided here, and make sure you are ordering a grip that has enough material to fit! I also have a grip for the M83, which is larger.

Please note that Freedom Arms custom fits their grips to each gun, and you will need to do the same. The back of these grips is solid and flat. You will need to use a Moto-tool or similar to remove material at the top, to clear the frame. This is not difficult to do. It just requires a bit of trial and error type fitting, going slowly to assure a perfect fit. Remove a little, try it, remove a little more, and when it fits right, stop!

size diagram Here are the size specs:
  • Front edge (A) = 0.872 inches
  • Overall height (B) = 3.18 inches
  • Width of base (C) = 1.8 inches
  • Midpoint of front edge to rear edge (D) = 1.64 inches
  • Width of flat at top (E) = 1.012 inches
  • Height of screw hole center = 1.47 inches
  • Width of grip at screw hole center = 1.175 inches
  • Rear edge to screw hole center = 0.71 inches

Here is a picture of the back of the grip, the way you will receive it. There is a notch or clearance required on the top front of the back. Use your existing grips as a guide, or lightly "paint" the edges of the gun frame with a Magic Marker and press the grip against the frame to mark the places where you need to remove material on the grip. A flat-end burr in a Moto-Tool works great for this. Grip back Aged Ivory

Dave Corbin Please Note: I make all the grips by hand and receive so many orders that custom made grip delivery takes an average 90 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!
