I'm trying to find some grips for an original Detective Special, either some nice orignal ones or some aftermarket grips. Other than Hogue, does anyone make aftermarket wood grips?

Thanks for your help!

Dave, you need to mention what year Det Spec. The stocks were different throught out the years depending when the DS was made.

I got you on Pistolsmith.com

For anybody looking for non-original grips for the long butt Colt DS, PP, or PPS, this gentleman has them: (he's a little off on his history and dating of when Colt went to the "stubby" frame)

Paul "Fitz" Jones
Old Colt Grips
My 1920-1979 company made the first aftermarket grips for the Colt weapons for detectives and under cover officers to help them to shoot better for their monthly shooting pay. Most grips today are based on Fitz patented designs in the 1920s.

I have a few wood grips left in my business archives in LIGHT WALNUT OR DARK CHERRY WOOD. I only have the long frame grips left and some fellows put their short frame pistol in my long grips to shoot more accurately. Send me a tracing of your bare grip frame with the pins and bolt holes shown and I will send you back a pic of the grip it fits with your tracing in the grip.

There are two basic frames long and short and all the colt names were made in both sizes of grips. The old frames were identical but with differing lengths and the short version was made in WW2 to save metal.

Email me
Paul Fitz Jones for pics

Thanks guys. I was trying to help a customer via email so I didn't have all the details on his revolver. I passed this info on to my customer. Most of the Colts that I have worked on have been Pythons.
