The photo of the grips
with the "Liberty Head" upraised is only one of many
designs produced by Larry Little and his wife, Debbie. These
grips are designed to make one-piece, perfectly-fitting stocks,
on your Colt SAA, 1851 Navy, 1860 Army, Cimarron
(or other "clone" brand) Single-Action revolvers.
Larry and Debbie also make grips for the Thunderer, Ruger's
Vaquero, Blackhawk, Super Blackhawk and Bisley models, as well
as many others.
The cost of these fine
grips varies depending on the design and model desired, but they
are less than the Micarta or polymer ivory types you see in gun
stores and on the Web. Plus, they are stronger, more beautiful,
feel better, and have the look, feel and aging characteristics
of real ivory...but they never crack. Larry's grips are made
from extremely durable urethane, which "yellows" over
time like ivory.
Grip Maker grips come
in either one-piece (as the example shown) or two-piece
configurations for the Colt (and Colt clone) sixguns. Grips for
Rugers come in two-piece configuration with escutcheon screw,
but Ruger grips with sculpted designs feature a "blind
hole" on the design side (either left or right depending on
your preference) for a cleaner appearance. This is a very nice
All Grip Maker grips
are shipped slightly oversize so you can fit them perfectly to
your gun, and include a detailed instruction sheet. If desired,
first-time buyers can order a "practice panel" at no
additional charge. Another very nice touch.
If you have always
wanted ivory-type grips on your sixshooter, it's time to contact
Larry Little, Grip Maker "extraordinaire".
