Skull and Bones 7/8-inch medallion
 
Skull and Bones 7/8-inch medallion Quantity in Basket: None

This is a larger version of the 5/8-inch skull and bones medallion, which is suitable for larger flat areas (not good for steeply curved surfaces, since the medallion can only be flush with the surface in either the vertical or the horizontal part of the curve, not both at once). Smaller diameter medallions are easier to "fit" to the surface curves on a contoured or rounded surface than are larger ones. But such grips as the 1911 Colt, or the top area of most of the larger single action grips, have a wide and fairly flat surface area that will accommodate the 7/8-inch diameter medallion and still allow the edges to be more or less flush with the grip surface all around.

Here's a little trick for mounting your own medallions: if the curve of the grip simply won't allow flush mounting all around, set the depth so that no part of the medallion is higher than the surface. This will mean at least one plane will be sunk below the surface and will leave the hole with an edge or drop-off to the medallion. But blend this edge from the grip surface to the medallion edge by gently sanding and smoothing the sharp edge before you permanently mount the medallion. This will look and feel better than leaving the hole with an edge higher than the medallion, and if done right, it may even appear that the medallion is part of the same curvature as the grip (even though it is flat).


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.
