DR Grip question

Post by scrum derringer on 8/19/2013, 12:31 pm

I was wondering if these grips would be legal, as they appear to be similar to the Hogue grips with finger grooves. This would be on a Model 14.

Fingergrooves are OK. Rubber grips are OK - nothing in the rules that disallows them.

my concern is if the butt of the grip would be considered "flared." The picture isn't the best at showing it.

Ah, yes - I do know the profile of those grips might give them a flared look at the base, but I'm pretty sure the rule against flared bases was written to exclude truly anatomical/palm-rest-type grips (or the ones I've seen used in Action Pistol).

Hogue's square-butt Monogrips also have a slight flare at the butt, and I've never seen one disqualified at a DR match.

I just replaced my Hogue grips with the one you have pictured above because I had better shot recovery in sustained fire with the Pachmayr.  IMHO the base isn't flared at least in the ones I have.  A flare is something you can rest your hand on.  At least 2 others were shooting this same grip during the DR match at the MN State tournament last weekend.
