I just picked up a set of vintage Fitz Ten-0 plastic grips off eBay just to try an actual BE style thumbrest revolver grip without forking $$$ out for some Nills.  They are are bit small for my hands, but better than the squishy, too small Hogue factory grip on a SW 625 revolver.

I would like them to be a bit grippier, as the plastic and plastic checkering is bit slick.  I was wondering if some of the older, uh I mean more experienced shooters might be familiar with these grips and some solutions from when they were more common on the shooting line.

I am not sure how interested in stippling them I am.  I also suppose I could go the grip tape route as well.....  There seems to be some light colored crap embedded in the checkering and I was wondering if it might be grip rosin.

Just interested in seeing what anyone has to say.

Had Fitz grips on my first bullseye pistol, a Ruger Mk I. This was back in about 1971. I'd try the grip tape or if you don't have much invested in them and want a more permanent solution, try glue and sand.

The light colored stuff you describe I am sure is residue from rock rosin same stuff baseball pitchers use.  I personnally use rock rosin myself and that is how I would desribe it on my pistols.  Do not confuse it with pine tar which is a whole different ball of wax.

You could break the glaze by sanding them a bit.

not sure how well you could stipple them,  thinking (which is dangerous) that it may crack or chip them when you try, (older resin may not like heat either??)

grip tape,  or even some cloth type gaffers tape may be better,  just to build it up where needed

They are plastic and had a few of them and good grips for what they are.
Stipple them with a soldering iron using the proper tip.
Experiment with a hunk of plastic until you get it right.

Good luck;

Really Len? Plasti-Dip?  Surprised

You can see the light stuff in the crevices.  It does resemble rosin.

Thanks for all the replies folks.  I am going to give it a go with the grip tape, as it is the easiest to test and remove and is 100% reversible with no damage to the grip (hopefully). Plus, I have some right here.

I was wondering if someone (Chris Miceli Smile ) was going to put up a pic of super glue.

I was in a bit of a hurry when I posted about the dip. That stuff sticks to anything and leaves a very grippy feel. I would never suggest dipping the entire grip. I have painted it on with a stiff brush where I need it. Hmmm. Never thought about super glue.

I was actually looking for it in Lowe’s today, thinking it might be worth a test. I might have to swing by the WallyWorld and see if they have it.

Sometimes I spend money just looking for other peoples solutions. I found these (with 34 minutes to go)while looking for something for a N frame like yours with a thumb rest. I started to post them here then realized there just wasn't enough time. Now I have to figure out what to put them on. Laughing

daflorc, I saw the question but had to wait to see them to respond. I guess the answer would be "no". They fit my hand and look good. I don't know if that means my scores will go up but lookn good points count too. You just don't get to put them on the score card. Smile
