So I was perusing eBay, and ran across this Zebrawood grip with the round tang hole, that would fit my 445….here’s a few quick photos….

And here it is mounted up….

The grip ran me $305, which seems like a lot, maybe it was….BUT, I’ve not seen any large frame Zebrawood grips before.  Maybe I’m a rookie in the DW world, but i’m happy with it.  Don’t see these every day!!

Yes, I know the gun is dirty….been out shooting and trying some new loads….  🙂

It is very nice. I think you set a record price though. Soon to be broken at the rate they are increasing in value.

BTW, not all large frame Pachmyer Presentation grips are the same. There is a model called the Decelerator.it has a second hole. One for the tang and one to absorb some of the shock. They are not very common or much known about.

You mean like this here???

The “stuff” in the big hole is just some rubber flaps left over from the molding of the grip.  The tang goes in that hole, the small hole toward the front of the grip (top of photo) I have no idea about.  Not sure how that would help to reduce recoil.  Seems like a recoil reducing hole would need to be behind the tang hole…..I’m not the smartest guy in the room though, that’s for damn sure!!!!

Over $300 sure is a high price to pay but the grips are absolutely beautiful! Looks like a tiger’s rear leg! Totally jealous here…drool

Yup, that’s the Decelerator. Probably works a little, like power porting. Lol. Still, any little bit helps.
