This is a 2-56 x 1 inch stainless steel, fillister head grip mounting screw, a brass press-fit 2-56 nut, and a brass press-fit ferrule for the screw head.

The brass mounting hardware fits into a 1/4-in diameter hole and provides ample support for the screw in a thin grip. A .092 hole through the counter bore allows the No.2 screw to pass through the grips, and a counterbore of .150 diameter allows room for alignment with the grip holes and frame hole in certain guns.

These kits are best suited to the 1910 Browning, 25 ACP Colt and Browning pocket pistols, and similar guns where the screw passes through a hole in the handgun's frame. They are also useful for thin grips such as those on modern pocket autoloading pistols.

You may need to cut the screw length to fit your particular combination of gun and grips. Instructions on proper cutting technique are sent with the screw kits.

Comparing 4-40 with 2-56 Please note that the grips offered on this website come with mounting screws installed unless otherwise requested by you, or unless they are designed to be used with the screws which come with the gun (as in the 1911 Colts and some of the Derringers), or unless they are 3-piece kits such as the early Blackpowder Colt revolvers used. You do not have to buy a screw kit separately unless you want one for some other reason. Screw kits are made available for other gripmakers and hobbyists to make their own grips more easily. (The press-in brass fittings are almost impossible to find except for the larger 5-40 size.)

Always allow a minimum of 0.020 inches of grip material below the counterbored hole (that is, under the nut or ferrule). Otherwise it may be possible to pull the ferrule or nut through the grip when you tighten the screw.

If you need this screw kit to make grip panels for some of the newer, thick-handled Ruger SP101 or GP100 styles of revolvers, ask for the 1.25 inch long screw instead of the 1.0 inch long standard size. The majority of guns using small diameter screws also use 1-inch or less length. But a few exceptions with extra-wide or thick grips need a longer screw. Also if you know you need a 7/8-inch or some other special length, let me know. I might not have the odd size in stock, but if I do I'd be glad to send it instead of the standard 1-inch length.

Dave Corbin Please Note: I make all the grips by hand and receive so many orders that custom made grip delivery takes an average 3-4 months.
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!
