Optional note:
Like an elongated comma, the typical Colt single action spacer fits between two grip panels and is the exact width of the grip frame. No screws are used, but the two panels are sanded to exact fit for your gun, then the spacer is sanded to the width of the back strap. The spacer is glued with 5-minute epoxy to one panel, allowed to cure, and then the other panel is attached.

The spacer is normally about 0.46 inches thick. If you need a thicker spacer, let me know in the "note". I can provide this shape up to about 0.75 inches thick. If you don't specify a thickness, I'll just send the standard one. Be sure to measure the thickness of your gun's frame where the grip panels mount to it (usually the backstrap thickness). The spacer needs to be at least that thick so you can sand it to exact fit.

The spacers are about 0.73 to 0.80 across the thick part (bottom) and about 2.4 to 2.5 inches tall. The exact size doesn't make much difference, since you just need something that can be mounted flush against the backstrap, pushing the grip firmly into the top corner of the frame so it is held securely. The shape needs to avoid contacting the hammer spring, but other than that, there isn't much of a requirement for a particular outline. You will sand the back and bottom a little to match your particular backstrap shape, and that's what counts. The thickness of course is important, which is why the spacer comes with detailed instructions for fitting.

This makes a "one-piece" grip using the 3 piece kit. If you should happen to need a spare spacer, this is it! Some spacers are more triangular, such as the one for the Colt Walker. The Colt Lightning/Thunderer uses a more curved, shorter spacer. Semi-auto pistol grips sometimes use a small, thin rohmbus or parallelogram shape spacer which fits snugly into the cutout of the magazine well side wall to keep the grip from turning.

Since the spacer is not visible when the grips are on the gun, the color really is a matter of your option. It is less costly to simply take whatever shade of ivory is ready to ship, since mixing special colors or pearl effects costs far more than the spacer is worth. If you really want a certain color, or pearl effect, it is best to order it with the set of grips, since there is no extra charge for sending a spacer instead of a screw mount kit, and the color is usually matched from the same mix.

If you want a general match but don't want to pay for a specific mix just for one spacer, note the color you want and I'll try to send something close. Again, since the spacer does not show, any color would work just as well as any other, and I normally have plenty of ivory and aged ivory plus a handful of odd colors on hand.
