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 grip that was made to fit an Iver Johnson 22 starter pistol, which has a frame similar to the Cadet 55 but uses a wider grip. It may also fit other guns with a similar shape of frame. Make a pencil tracing around the grips on a 3 x 5 index card and mark the screw hole location. Send the tracing to me, and I can compare it to the grip size and shape and let you know if it will work on your gun. Or compare your gun measurements with the below size specs for the grip:
  • Width across the top bulge = 1.4 inches
  • Width across the narrow part of the neck = 1.2 inches
  • Width across the grip at the screw hole = 1.4 inches
  • Width across the base just above the curve portion = 1.3 inches
  • Height of the screw hole center from base = 1.18 inches
  • Front "corner" of the top bulge to the baseline = 1.9 inches
  • Rear "corner" of the top bulge to the baseline = 2.9 inches
  • Overall height at 90-degrees to the baseline = 3 inches

The grip is secured by a single mounting screw, which clamps the two grip panels on the gun. To prevent the grip from rotating, two thin spacers are provided. You would sand these to fit into the grip frame cut-out snugly and epoxy glue them to the grip back (instructions for alignment come with the grips).

Basically, you would first sand the grips to a good fit on the frame, fit the spacer into the cut-out on the grip frame, put 5-minute epoxy glue on the surface of the spacer, and use the screw with only one grip panel to align it and press it against the epoxy to secure the spacer to the back of the grip. After the epoxy cures, do the same with the other grip panel.

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!
