S&W K Sq.Butt Stag (3e)
Quantity in Basket:
Shipping Weight: 0.20 pounds
There are two stag horn listings for the K-frame grip.
The other one is the 33a which has a different pattern.
The S&W K-frame revolvers cover a wide range of models,
from the early hand ejectors through the Victory model
military and police, and the famous model 10 and its
subsequent variations, the K-22, and K-38 Masterpieces,
and the modern stainless steel versions.
This round-top grip makes any of them look more
"vintage" in the sense of using original style grips
rather than the larger "Magna" or "Target" styles that
lap over the top of the frame.
The same grip can be used, in a pinch, on the larger
"N" frame revolvers except that the flare at the very
top of the grips, where the two angled edges reach out
toward the sides of the frame, are a tad short to reach
the edge, so a little of the frame shows at the top.
If you have an N frame gun (such as the 1917 or Triple Lock)
that has missing or damaged grips and need something
quick and inexpensive that will look nice even if
it isn't a perfect fit at the top, these would work,
and most casual observers wouldn't notice.
The stag horn effect is hand painted into the mold on
top of a fine layer of talc, in three different
colors. Each color must dry completely on the talc,
and then another is applied. When the resin is poured,
it adsorbs some of the acrylic color. Then, the layer
first put down on top of the talc is lightly sanded
to expose lower colors and make the grip look very
natural. The talc, of course, is wiped off leaving
only the color behind.
The escutcheon screw, nut, and insert ARE included and
installed if you check the box for it, above.
Dimensions for this grip:
- Width at Butt = 1-3/4 inch
- From base to screw hole = 1-1/4 inch
- From base to inside top step = 2-5/16 inch
- Height = 2-15/16 inch
- Width across top corners = 1-1/16 inch
- Height of rounded dome above line across corners = 5/16 inch
- Height from base to front top corner = 2-5/16 inch
The measurements are taken with the butt
on the zero or bottom line, and the top is the
highest point of the radius measured at a right
angle to the butt line. All distances are measured
on a line at right angle to the butt.
Some sanding and fitting will be necessary to
mate these grips to your individual firearm's frame.
There is a locating pin in the lower butt area which
requires a precisely located hole to keep the grips
secure, and you will need to mark and drill a shallow,
small hole in each of the grips for this pin.
