COLT WOODSMAN 2nd Series EARLY GRIPS (checkered)
Product code: CW2e-1
Availability: In stock
These grips fit the early Colt woodsman 2nd series pistols made in 1947-1950. They are made from English or Black walnut, checkered with the Colt logo engraved, oil finished. The escutcheon is installed. The original screw can be used or a replacement screw can be purchased from our website. The last photo shows the back of the LATER 2nd Series grips; these grips have a rib on the back that ONLY fits the later guns. If your gun has this rib on its back, you may not have an "early" gun and should contact us for help.
Before any manipulation wiht the gun MAKE SURE it is UNLOADED.
Point the gun in a safe direction to unload it.
Pistols: Remove the magazine, clear the action and check barrel and chamber to ensure they are clear of any rounds.
Revolvers: Open the cylinder and remove any rounds. Double check to make sure no rounds remain in the weapon.
Remove Existing Grips as per the instructions of the manufacturer. Be careful not to damage the existing grips. Set aside and preserve the factory grips, as they might be a valuable part of the weapon and should you decide to sell the weapon they could increase the value.
Install New Grips
Please, refer to the instruction for each particular grip on the web page relating to that grip.
Clean the frame before installing new grips.
If new screws are supplied with the grips, use them. Otherwise use your original screws.
If the grips do not fit correctly, DO NOT FORCE THEM ON.
Certain grips appear to be a one piece grip, but are in effect 2 pieces pinned together. Carefully separate these grip panels to avoid breakage.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Only install grips on the frame for which they were designed. Even then, grips are not always a perfect fit right out of the package. Please, read the instructions and DO NOT attempt any alteration until you have done so. Also bear in mind the instruction by manufacturer of your wepon. Grips that have been modified in any way ARE NOT RETURNABLE.
After installing grips, CHECK YOUR GUN and make sure that all parts of the gun function correctly and without being obstructed or hindered by the grip.
Improper manipulation of any other internal component may affect the safety and reliability of your firearm and may cause serious injury or death.
NEVER ALLOW ANY ALTERATION OR REPLACEMENT OF PARTS IN YOUR FIREARM UNLESS PERFORMED BY A QUALIFIED GUNSMITH USING AUTHORIZED PARTS.
