Custom Mark IV Grips ( two sets )



Log in to see fewer ads
These will only fit the Mark IV standard / target / hunter frame. They will not fit the 22/45.

I started a few sets of these a year ago. Took one set to the finish line and put on my Target, with the others needing final shaping / sanding / and finish I shelved them for this winter.
They got their first coat of finish today and will get three more coats (8-12 days). When they get the final coat, I'll draw two names from a hat. First name gets choice.

Must be a member for 2 years with at least 200 posts to enter. A " put me in " will put your name in the hat.
If I see them up for sale somewhere, remember I'll have your address and you may be getting on a lot of mailing lists.

Screws included.

Ambrosia Maple




Butternut


I'll post better pictures, on the gun before the last coat.

Hawkeye57,
Please "put me in" for possible selection to receive a set of your grips. Very nice workmanship. A very generous PIF item. Thank you! Wish you health and happiness in 2022.

If this works out, I may put another set up next year, and maybe a set for the Single Six. Get your post count up.

Either of these would make me ecstatic. Please count me in.

I'd sure put in for a set for a Single Six later too. For my partner's dad's Convertible.

If I owned a Victory I would definitely try making a set. Send me a Victory and you'll be at the top of my list for a long time.

Your counted in.

I've owned Single Six's and Blackhawks for many years and always thought about trying my hand at making my own grips, but never got around to it. Then about six years ago I got a Blackhawk .357 that came with the plastic grips, and that pushed me into trying some. Five years and 12 sets of SS grips later came the Mark IV target with plastic grips, and another push at figuring out how to make some grips for it.

They got a second coat yesterday, and were dry enough today to put on for a picture.

On the back side they show a 3/32" frame revile like the OEM plastic panels. Unlike the OEM's they don't have the revile in the front. They carry out to the round over on the frame, to help get a slight finger groove.

They were made for a right hander with the grooves being more pronounced on the right grip, and a fade for the thumb on the left grip.

I don't take great pictures, and the lighting in the shop makes it worst.

Ambrosia Maple.
The left grip has bore / beetle hole's that were filled with CA glue.


Butternut

They got the last coat yesterday and will get a rub with rottenstone tomorrow, then a coat of wax.
I'll draw two names tomorrow afternoon.

RCrosby was the first name drawn.

After he picks his the other set goes to Racer X.

PM's sent.

Ken


One last picture.
Maple on the top, Butternut on the bottom, and the other set is cherry for a Blackhawk 45 LC that I won last fall.
