Silver grips for a Seecamp
« on: September 27, 2011, 07:48:31 PM »
I seem to remember someone on here had a Seecamp w. some silver grips - I'd appreciate the silversmith's contact info.

Richard has a set on his NAA I believe and can probably help you out.
   Seems he's been pretty busy maybe a PM would help.

Brad:

I apologize for missing your original post but have responded to your PM. Let me know if I can provide any further information on your silver-grip project.

In the meantime, I've posted enough photographs of the silver grips on my now safe-queen Guardians, but here is a link to one for any who may have an interest:

Although a "Bling Alert" was not provided with the link, Defendant notes by way of mitigation that such an alert was contained in the original post.   ;)

Bling alert is out.  One great looking NAA.

The R9's aftermarket grips have to come from a CNC program -- or a carver with the patience of Job. I spent the cost of another R9 trying to have a set of sterling silver grips cast for my R9 using the lost-wax process. The result would have added three Troy ounces of weight to the pistol but could not be done due to the slight -- and I do mean slight -- shrinkage from the original which results from the process. The two screws on each of the R9 grips have to be absolutely and  perfectly alligned. For a handgun having only one grip screw per panel, it's easily done -- as shown by this pair on my G-380, which has been primarily a "safe queen" since I took delivery of the R9:

Let the record reflect that I did not bring that photograph to the forefront. KJ did.

I knew Richard was too humble to do so.    :)
