Pardini SP Grips?

Post by beeser on 2/18/2015, 8:37 am

What grips are available for the Pardini SP that have the 1911 grip angle?  I sold my first SP because of the awkward transition between the standard SP grip and the 1911.  I just purchased another SP after learning that there were other grips available.

I have a Pardini HP and all I had to do was loosen the grip screw and the grip will pivot to what ever angle you need including the 1911 angle. You may need a longer screw to get to the 1911 angle I did. I also have a set of Dick Horton grips and they are great also.

Does anyone have a set of horton grips without finger grooves? I'm wondering about exactly what the grooves really offer.

My Horton grips came with finger grooves which I removed and now I am happy.

They sure are beautiful and look comfortable.  But I'd remove those finger grooves as well as the raised section at the base of the fingers.  Looks like those grips would prevent your wrist from being flat and along the same plane as your forearm (the same position used when punching) without modification.

PARDINI SP GRIPS?

Post by DHMG1 on 2/18/2015, 9:36 pm

In theory, the grip design with the exaggerated finger grooves is meant to simulate squeezing a block of modeling clay. The ridge created from the attachment of one's fingers to the palm further creates a "stop" point to enable a repeatable grip on the pistol, which in turn reduces the necessity to reacquire the proper sight alignment after resting the gun.  However, this design feature is an option. As custom grips...you can get them any way you want them. The shooter is encouraged to make personal modifications for the most comfortable fit. Restoring the grip to it's original work-of-art finish then is covered free of charge. Nothing beats a satisfied customer!

I was a challenging customer for Dick Horton. He did everything to make me a grip that I liked, fantastic customer service. I'm embarrassed to send mine back after I took off the finger grooves for the final finishing as Dick has too much "free" time into these grips.

I am another satisfied customer of Dick Horton with my pardini grips. 

One thing that is not discussed much is that he offers the standard high rake European grips for the pardini and also offers the more conventional 1911 style grips that do not require you to angle your wrist so far forward.   I got the 1911 grips since the European style does not work with me. 

Awesome grips! Excellent customer service.  Good price too.

Cranky

Thanks to this thread I just ordered grips from Dick for my Pardini that is also on order.  Decided against finger grooves but went with the nicer wood.  I'll post pics when everything is here.

I have the steeper Rink grips, they fit me perfectly. The grip angle is close to that of a GSP.
