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 for the Hy Hunter Western Six Shooter in a variation of frame size. It is shown in pure white, but the base price is for natural ivory.

It is available as a full-sized blank as well as being machined at the top with the notch used to fit around the frame projection. I have it listed both as a Herbert Schmidt produced Hy Hunter brand import, here, and as the blank in the blank grip category. If you order here, I will fit it to your tracing.

This is also available as a stag horn grip, which you can order either as a blank or as a top-notched Hy Hunter grip, depending on the category you choose. The model for the stag horn version is 42G. Don't order 42F if you want stag horn! It is a different model.

You can also order this grip with or without the screw mounting. If you order a 3-piece kit to make a 1-piece grip, you get two panels and a spacer. If you order a 2-piece kit for screw mounting, I will install the screw and fittings according to the location on the tracing you send me.

If you do not send a tracing or template that shows the screw location, and order a screw mount version, I have to use the only information available, which is the location of the screw from tracings of other production models of the Western Six Shooter sent to me by other clients. It may or may not match your particular gun. Production changes and machining tolerances can bite you in the butt if you make assumptions that every gun with the same model and make just "have to be" the same! They don't.

I wish they were! Then I wouldn't have to make 20 different molds just for a Ruger Blackhawk or a Colt 1873 Army grip to fit all the slight variations in size and shape for what should in theory be the same for all examples. But a tracing shows me what your particular gun frame looks like, without risking your grips or gun in the mail. Solves the problem. Saves you having to get another set instead. Only good comes from sending a tracing instead of assuming. Or just measure your grip and compare to the specs.

size diagram
  • Front edge length including notch (a) = 1.1 inch
  • Overall height including notch (b) = 3.18 inch
  • Width of the base (c) = 2.1 inch
  • Center of front edge to rear edge, parallel to base (d) = 1.7 inch
  • Flat area at the top including notch (e) = 0.8 inch
  • Thickness at the top area = 0.3 inch
  • Thickness at the base in the center area = 0.6 inch
  • Width across the narrow part of the neck = 1.4 inch
  • Width across the area of the screw hole = 1.5 inch

The grip is relatively thick and can be sanded thinner if desired. It is ideal for larger hands as sent. The top is cut with a notch, to match your tracing, and the back and rear edge behind the notch is relieved so it fits the curved frame at the top. You may need to use a Dremel or similar tool to fit this notched area more precisely to your particular gun.

If you want the screw installed, check the above option for me to do so (no charge). If you don't want the screw installed, check the 3-piece kit option to make a 1-piece grip. Only guns with removable back straps can use this kind of grip, but many if not all of the Hy Hunter Western Six Shooter models used a removable back strap. You can tell: if your original grips do not use any screws to hold them on, they are a one-piece grip. There are two screws, one on either side of the hammer, that secure the top of the back strap to the rest of the gun frame. Usually there will be two more at the front bottom corner of the grip frame. If not, you need the 2-piece grip with screw mounting.
