This set of bird's head shape grips can be sawed, filed, and sanded (not necessarily all three!) to fit a wide range of small pocket pistols. The location of a grip screw would depend on your gun's frame and hammer spring position, so it comes without the screw holes. You can order the desired screw mount kit separately, if you so desire.

I like to use this grip on the various North American Arms and Freedom Arms revolvers. It is large enough so you can hold it up to the grip frame, and draw around the frame on the back of the grip, then cut and sand off the surplus. I use a little wood-cutting jig saw to slice off larger portions of the surplus material, and then a coarse grit fingernail sanding board to get the shape right. Finally, I use a medium and then a fine grit (say, about 200 and then 320 grip, but exact grit isn't critical) to finish shaping. Finally, I use a wet-dry abrasive material like you'd use to finish auto painting jobs to finish the surface, buff it with a muslin wheel and white rouge, and finally, wax and buff it with regular clear auto or furniture wax.

But I've had clients say they roughed the surface with a sand blaster once they'd carved it to shape, to get a good slip-proof surface. Oh, well...whatever you like! The smooth grips clean up easier and I've not really noticed any problem with grips slipping around in my hand (rolling upward under recoil seems normal to me, not a problem). But most folks don't count on these guns for combat operations, so do whatever works best in your own situation...

However, please don't ask me to install medallions, put in the screw kit, make it fit some particular model of gun, etc. because this is a blank, priced so YOU can do those things. Also, without a tracing that shows the size and shape, and the location of the screw hole, I can't do it anyway. It's generic, not specific to a model.

I do include material so you can make spacers for the back, in case they are needed for your gun. These are thin bits of material that you sand to fit the frame opening, then epoxy cement to the back of the grip (once the grip is shaped) so the grip can't pivot around the mounting screw.
