Colt 2nd Series Grip Adapter

Does adding either the small or large grip adapter change POI by attaching them to a 2nd series Woodsman? Would the POI be higher or lower? Thanks!

When adding either the small or large grip adapter to my Woodsman 2nd series (4 1/2 inch bbl.) I did not note any change of impact using HV LR ammo. Of course each shooter grips a pistol (or revolver) a little differently. I actually prefer shooting the Woodsman without either of the adapters.

I do also. This particular model is a fixed sight Woodsman from 1949 serial number 45695S and it lost it's grip adapters somewhere along the way.

It shoots a little high at 15 yds and since options are limited wanted to see if having the adapters would make any difference.

If any thing I see the grip adapters doing the same thing as the mainspring housing on a 1911A1; which was designed to overcome the tendancy of some (actually alot of men) to jerk the muzzel down when the pulled the trigger.

I shoot mine without the adapters...

Thanks for the kind words. In fact I ordered one from him yesterday and it was indeed the large matching bakelite or Coltwood grip adapter, though it was not pictured on ebay.

Why did Colt make a limited run of the fixed sight model in 1949?
