It's Raining Dennis Grips!

Post by bobtx » March 4th, 2008, 12:52 pm

My latest grips from Dennis arrived on Saturday. I was able to go by the Post Office today and pick them up. These are a set of the smooth zebrawood for my PA-63. They fit like a glove and look great.

Very nice Bob!

I am thinking about ordering a set for one of my PA-63's next.

Did you use the screw that came with them?

You also might want to blue the nut with Perma Blue.

They look great.

Hey Bob,

I think I am going for the smooth ash, oil finish.

Thanks guys.....

Fritz,

I was actually able to use the original screw on this set. I am still looking for one that will work on my Dennis grips for my Bulgy Mak. I used one of Dennis' screws, the shorter one, on my P-64, but I had to use several small washers to make it work.

Bob,

Do you have access to a decent hardware store in your area, and are you good with simple machining?

On the P-64 Dennis I took a Phillips head M3 50 pitch and cut it down to fit perfectly.

The key is to put a nut on the screw before you cut it, gently grind the screw to length, finish it clean with a smooth file, and finally wetsand paper. Remove the nut, and deburr any residual thread. Finally clean it up again, and blue it.

Measure carefully.
It also won't hurt to buy a couple of screws just in case.

I hope this helps. If I can help any further let me know. I don't have a Makarov (YET) to use for a templete screw, but if you have an extra Makarov screw perhaps you could send it to me and I will see what I can do.

Norm has generously offered to help me with an Enfield I am about to tackle and I believe that as a group we should all be helping each other.

Let me know 8-)

Hey Fritz,

I got the P-64 grips to work just fine with the lock washers. I just need to get some time to poke around in a real hardware store up in San Antonio to find a screw for the Mak.

Thanks for the input!!!

Bob

I don't care for those Dennis grips on the P-64 but if I had a PA-63 I would definitely get a set that looks sharp! Great picture!

I'm looking forward to placing an order with Dennis. I sent an email to dmarschal@yahoo.co.uk a few days ago, but have not received a response yet.

Depending on what's going on for him at the moment, it could take a while to get a response. If you have a PayPal account, you can place an order directly at his website and a few weeks later it's in your mail box.
