The two photos above show a very unique and cleaver treatment to the
top of these S&W model 19 stocks. Although I made these grips for my
customer, the design credit belongs to Mr Ross Seyfried. After much trial
he landed on this design as his personal favorite for a S&W. Look at the
left side panel and you will see a thumb rest for a more secure hold on
The original grips made by Mr Seyfried are pictured below. These he
made to fit one of his N frames, which he sold one of his friends. This
gentleman sent them to me so I could fashion the 19 stocks. A very
cool project indeed.
This Dan Wesson was a unique project given it's unusual grip frame.
The "spike" style frame poses a challenge for those wanting to stock
this fine revolver.
The photos above and below show how the grain seems to flow from
one panel to the other. The wood blank was selected to make this flow
as uninterupted as possible, since the 2 panels are actually epoxied
together to make a one piece grip that slides on and off. It attaches
to the frame with a screw through the bottom of the grip in the same
way the factory stock does.
