Poppa Kapoff,

I have worked with Big T (A cascity.com member) on grip projects several times. I have constantly found that his work far exceeds my expectations.

Although he primarily does knives, I have found his grip work is fantastic and far less than what one would pay to the 'big boys".

So if you have a project, I would send him an email and see if you could work it out beteen you ...

BTW, here is a little S&W pocket pistol that he made the stag grips for:



Here is his website where you can email him:

Nice little gun, indeed, can you tell me what caliber you shoot with (32?)

Gun Creek Phil,

The gun in the pic is a 4th Model S&W in .32 S&W; but my normal guns are a pair of Navy Arms Schofields ... Plus I have a couple of ROAs that I shoot occasionally ...plus Pietta a Starr, 1858 Remington and an old gun-that never was, an Armi San Marcos '51 Colt in .44 Cal (that I use reenacting   ...as in my profile).

You can try Ellen Hunting for stag but bring your wallet.
http://www.elenhunting.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?Screen=CTGY&Store_Code=EHOS&Category_Code=PG
I used some of their grips on a Derringer I used to shoot in CAS side matches. Gunsmith polished it and did final fine fit for the grips. Loved that gun. The 32 mag barrels registered perfectly at seven yards. It was like shooting a single barrel gun. BUT those derringers are HEAVY>
