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.
Grip with mounting screw kit installed Although this is a universal or generic grip kit, it was built primarily to fit a Harrington & Richardson Premier top break caliber .38 S&W revolver, with a round butt. If you would like a vintage look that retains the authentic esthetics of the gun, while providing a larger, longer, more comfortable hold, fit this grip kit to your gun.
    Grip Dimensions:
  • Width across top corners = 1.1 inches
  • Front top "step" = .16 inches
  • Rear top "step" = .243 inches
  • Height of top above a line drawn across the corners = 0.33 inches
  • Width of most narrow section at top = 1.04 inches
  • Width across inside edge of the spacer = 1.39 inch
  • Height of spacer at grip center = 0.51 inch
  • Height of rear spacer extension from inside to tip = 1.06 inch
  • Distance from top rear corner to tip of "bird beak" at base = 2.93 inches

H&R Premier Hammerless H&R top breaks had a number of different grip styles other than the most common two-panel style fitted to the full outline of the frame. This particular style uses a filler to extend the size of the grip at the rear strap, and at the base. The filler block will need to be sanded or cut to clear the frame of the gun, and sanded to fit the outline of the extended grips. A small upward curve should be blended to the shape of the front strap, and the back curve of the block blended to match the rear of the frame.

If you want the screw kit installed, send a tracing that indicates where it should go to fit your gun. Otherwise, I can only put the hole where it fits on an H&R 38 Top Break Premier model (since that's the gun I used to make the grips in the first place). A tracing allows me to make sure the grips are large enough. I don't fit them to your gun using the tracing, since you need to have the gun in hand to fit the spacer properly. I'd just be guessing, whereas you can do it exactly.

This grip may be used on other, similar size revolvers. Some suggestions are the S&W I-frame and J-frames, early top breaks, Hopkins and Allen, and Iver Johnsons. Just compare dimensions and make sure that your gun will accept this size or slightly smaller, in the same two-panel mounting style.

The grips are formed without a mounting hole, which is drilled if you indicate that the screw mounting kit should be installed. Otherwise, they can be left smooth, and you can install the screw kit if you wish. Just check the appropriate box above to indicate your choice. Either way, I'll include the mounting kit with the grips.

This is sent as a universal or generic kit rather than to fit a specific gun. You will want to sand and fit the spacer to the required shape. After using 5-minute epoxy glue to hold the spacer block to one grip panel, you can then sand the block thickness so it matches the gun frame thickness. Then mount the grip panels on the gun, and sand the bottom edge of the grips and spacer so they blend smoothly together.

To make the base even more secure, drill two small (1/8 to 3/16 inch diameter) shallow blind holes in the spacer, push two roll pins into them, and then drill matching holes in the other panel. When you install the grips, the pins will keep the spacer and panel from shifting even slightly under a firm hold. If you make the set of holes in the spacer block slightly snug for a tight fit on the pins, and the other set in the grip panel a close slip fit, the pins will stay in the spacer block when you remove the grips.
