Everyone, If your a real Colt guy you'll call them stocks, not grips.

Thank you

Oh great, the new guy is already correcting people. YIKES !!! /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

If we're not REAL Colt guys, can we just call them the wood or rubber thingies that are on the opposite side of the shootin' end ?

FYI, some of my Colt FACTORY packaging is marked with the word grips.

FYI, in reading through many different COLT firearms catalogs, it states what type of GRIPS come on each gun from their Autos to the entire Revolver line. Hmmmm

This reminds me of the argument about whether it is a "clip" or a "magazine."

We all have better things to do--do we not?

It takes a Ruger guy to step in and argue whether there's enough time to argue.... LOL /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif

I'm having fun, if you're not, you're doing it all wrong. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

This thing refuses to allow me to vote. It claims that it already has a vote from my IP address. That is a crock. Did it have anything to do with where I placed the mark?
It really doesn't make a lot of difference. We all know what we're talking about.
I'm as guilty as anyone of refering to stocks as grips, even though I was told, in my early years, that they were grip panels or stocks.
I think it was Bill Jordan who said the chunks of wood on his gun were stocks and the grip was what held on to them.
I think we've called them grips for long enough that it has become proper to address them in that way.
Most of the people who manufacture them call them grips. Some of the custom smiths still say stocks, but whatever we call those things, we know of which part we're speaking.
What really hurts my old ears is to hear some expert refer to a magazine as a clip. Now there we're talking about two entirely different parts.

"Stocks", even though proper, does not sound right to me. Maybe it sounds OK if they are stock stocks (as in factory) stocks...but when it gets over to such things as Stag stocks and Ivory stocks, I much prefer to hear and say Stag grips and Ivory grips.

Plus we all know that Woodstock was a concert and not a stock/grip type. So, to really make sense, wood stocks should really be called wood grips.

Wooden you have to agree? I'll think I'll stock worrying about it and concentrate on the more important issue of if it's OK to call a revolver a pistol...or not.

I always figured stocks were on rifles and shotguns, pistols and revolver have "grips", like "gun fighter grips".
Rugers we call grip panels.

Whatever works for you, it goes bothways ,same as clips and magazines as far as I'm concerend, I know what one is referring to,in a conversation. /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

Do what you will guys, but don't be surprised if some of the oldtimers on the COLT forum don't answer your question if you refer to them as grips. Good luck, you may need it.

Hey who gave me five stars???????

For what it's werth (i bet that English teacher is going to wip me for that one), the five stars came all the way from opperdoes, the united kingdom of the Netherlands.

Dick, I rate you very high because of your expertise on Diamondbacks.

Fair to say that I also rated his greatness dfarriswheel with 5 stars. And that was prior to my post of the spitting Diamondback!

Along the way I bet there are a few more guys how deserve a big thumbs up for there contributions to this great forum!

If you are an English speaking Colt guy then the "your" in your message above should be spelled "you're" or "you are".

Please don't take offense, I just couldn't resist!

Gunsmoke, I grew up watching the tv series "Gunsmoke". It was a western story from Dodge City, Kansas. Just wondering if you had any ties back to Dodge City. Great user ID.

It's good to see a Colt guy from abroad.
