Belgian Top Break RF (130e)

Shipping Weight: 0.10 pounds
This is a small, smooth 1880s era top break grip found on certain
Belgian imports, mostly 22 rimfires. It may also fit small
Iver Johnson manufactured hardware firm brands such as the
U.S. Revolver, or even small H&R, Hopkins & Allen, or other
brands with the same size of frame.
It is listed under many headings because so many contract-
manufactured guns built by major name firms might use it.
Also, it may fit some solid frame revolvers where the
cylinder pin is removed to drop out the cylinder for
reloading. It is a tiny grip and does not work well with
medallions over 1/2 inch diameter. I don't recommend
medallions for it, but if you want one, I will do my best
to install it so it looks at least reasonably good. The tiny
daisy and any 3/8 to 1/2 inch medallion is OK, but those
larger such as 5/8 inch push the limits.
Really, the only way I can tell if your gun fits this
grip is for you to compare measurements, listed here, or make a
pencil tracing of your grip frame or around your existing
grips and send it to me. There is no way to tell by the
brand name or model because there were so many varieties
using similar shapes and sizes.
- Overall height (B = E) = 2.16 inches
- Height of front corner (D) = 1.5 inches
- Width across top corners (A) = 0.93 inches
- Front step (H) = 0.127 inches

Please note that the grip is square bottomed, more so than
average, almost as if the grip was cut off to make it more
easily concealed (it's just a style of the period).
