When my friend’s brother-in-law retired from the force he asked me to craft him a new handgrip for his personal firearm. i selected two goncalvo alves scales and crafted them to the plastic original equipment. Since they felt a bit small in my hand, The new grip is a tad wider, much smoother and makes the revolver better balanced in the hand. One grip is cantilevered to alow belt carry without a holster. It was finished down to 600 grit paper and lightly finished with hard wax. I hope its never fired in need.

There is a space between the grip and the metal to allow it to be slipped over the belt and down the pants.
