Hey @ all!

I want to show you a grip here, which I have constructed for fun. It is the smallest possible grip, which can be mounted on a Dan Wesson Small Frame Revolver, Model 715 or 15 / … caliber .357Mag and still completely surrounds the mandrel of the revolver.

I use it, when I carry my gun with the 2,5‘ Barrel.

Interesting exercise in minimalization … but in my opinion, that is more of a cover than a grip.

Yes, it is like a Cover and a little tricky to shoot. I have tried it today. Now, I think about to add a ring for the middle Finger.

It is done! I have added the ring and the handling is perfect now! It’s a really fun to shoot! And still a really small gun to carry.

Next step: milling the grip in wood.

UM….No thanks, I’ll pass on shooting that.

Anything worth doing is worth doing well.

El Paso Two

 

Just get a model 60 with boot grips
