I have news for you all on the grips on my pistol, I found an article from a 1978 American Hangunner, that talks about Sacramento Grips with wrap around checkering called PowerWood, I took the grip off and it is indeed PowerWood, or a hard plastic resembling woodSmile

Sure fooled me

I had seen that same article some time ago, but had never seen one. Any chance oy you posting a photo over on the DW History topic, where we have all the accessories, etc?

I went to a bookstore and asked the saleswoman "Were is the Self Help Section?" She said if she told me, it would defeat the purpose.

I just went through all the old Shooters bibles I had from 1970-1976.  No mention of a 8″ chop barrel anywhere…Cry  Not saying there isn't ONE out there, they just weren't catalogued.

Oh, yeah! I recall there being a Powerwood option mentioned in some of the old articles, that they tried for a little while, that's great.occasion I was fairly certain that it was a DW grip, but it also shoots my theory of it merely being a checkered version of the wood grip.

I have been thinking about this build-a-porkchop, and have thought that we are going about it the wrong way, what we need to have built is a simple porkchop adapter plate, that covers the bottom of the pistol's frame, and indexes like it should, it has a thin strong plate attached above with the indexing for the non-porkchop barrels, if this could be built you would only need the adapter then the world would be your oyster Drool

This would be much easier and practical than building longer porkchop shrouds, to say the least a lot less expensive, I wouldBuy Now!!!!!!!!

Here’s a new one I was fortunate to be able to bring home this week. A Model 14 .357 that’s in pretty good shape & mildly “Barneyed”. According to the serial number, this .357 was made exactly 10 guns behind my Model14 .38 Special (pictured on pg. 1 in this thread).Smile

*EDIT* Here’s a 15-1 that I brought home not too long after the 14 above. This is an example of the final group of design features before the 15-2 was introduced. One thing I learned when I got this one that is defferent from earlier Porkchops, is that the action innards are pretty much all 15-2 inside.Smile

Model 12 shrouds have no room for a barrel nut. The front sight is very tall. Same height as a 15 but taller than a 15-1.

Also a 12 barrel is 1/4″ lo her than a 15.
