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.
The Ruger GP100 with fixed sights uses this grip panel insert, as do several other Ruger firearms (SP101, for instance).

Be SURE to check the size and shape! Do not simply order by looking at the GP100 model number alone. There are two different sizes of grip insert panels. Some GP100's use the smaller panel and some use the larger one, which I list separately under the GP101. I don't know what you have: you can see it. Just compare size to avoid getting the wrong one!

To determine if your gun uses this size, check your existing grip panel measurements against these:

  • Height, center of top through screw hole to base: 2-1/8 inch.
  • Width, across through screw hole: 1-1/16 inches.

  • Height, center of top to center of base: 2 inches
  • Width, across through screw hole: 1-1/16 inches.
  • Location of screw hole from front (trigger side) edge: 19/32 inch.
  • Height of screw hole at 90-degress from base: 1-7/8 inches.

There is a 1/2-inch OD x 1/8-inch deep locating hole with a center positioned 1/2-inch from the base, and 3/8-inch from the back edge. This leaves about 3/32 of an inch from the rear edge of the locating hole to the rear edge of the grip panel.

The original grip panels have a large mounting screw with a very large ferrule, which covers too much of the panel. These panels use a 0.2 inch diameter ferrule and nut, with a stainless steel screw. This is more than strong enough to hold the grips and panels on the gun, without covering up so much of the decorative panel surface.

These panels are smooth, not checkered. You can buff and polish them to a high finish with a buffer or wet and dry abrasive paper. They look especially nice with pearl, opal and other sparkling or color-shifting materials, in contrast with the black rubber grip body.

Please Note:
As with all Tombstone Grip Kits, these inserts are semi-finished so that you may wish to (a) polish them and/or (b) sand them to a different thickness, or sand to make them identical thickness.

The grip panel inserts NORMALLY don't need much finishing or sanding. But they are specifically sold as kits, rather than 100% finished. So if you want a higher polish or a different thickness, it should be clearly understood that this is up to you to do. Now that I've covered that, it's a fact that few people do more than buff the inserts a little, if that.
