Thread: Scales for the GP100

  1. #1

    Scales for the GP100

    The original scales on my GP100 split.

    I made my own pair out of mesquite, but didnít realize how thin they had to be. Mesquite being hard but brittle, didnít work out too well.

    I had enough DIY so just want to buy a set, something more durable than wood, like micarta.

    Suggestions?

    I was into 10mm Auto before it sold out and went mainstream, but these days I'm here for the revolver and epidemiology information.

    Besides, stag doesnít feel right with a red-dotted gun.

    (James Earl Jones voice) "I find the lack of Micarta and G10 grip inserts for the GP100 disturbing."

    If you want a synthetic, the Altamont bonded ivory or pearl inserts are not too expensive.

    I had a pair of Chig's Grips inserts in stabilized box elder burl which were oddly pretty and did not cost a fortune, should you decide a stabilized wood might be acceptable.

    Well I poked around and couldnít see anything that impressed me, so I whipped up another set from some white oak I had laying around.



    Theyíre not nearly as pretty as the mesquite, but a whole lot tougher.

    Are those oversized grips on your GP100? They look bigger.
