Hi:
Looking for a source of a grip for an SP101 with an integral lanyard loop, something that could be used for white water rafting ect.
Does such a thing exist?

Nbanders: a fly fishing friend made up his own lanyard ring.

He took some plastic strapping tape, folded it over, slid on a brass ring, and removed the grips. He then placed the tape on the frame and screwed the grips down tight. It was very secure and no alteration to the revolver.

Possible to do the same with very high tensile strength fishing line??....

I have a set of grips (not for sale, but I'll try to post some pictures) that came off of my daughter's SP. A group of these 2.25", .38s were brought back from a French gov't group. The guns all had import markings and grips that were modified in such a manner thst allowed access to a frame (grip super structure) loop. These were supposedly what the ladies were offered while people with larger hands had a choice of GPs. You might be able to find a neat way to mimmick this.

Bowen sells a lanyard loop that replaces the screw for the Houge grips

Maybe you could drill a hole thru a spare pair of grips and use paracord. Just an idea.. maybe not the best one though! :-)

Yep, he does.

I'll provide a link to the page, since I just spent 15 minutes searching the Brownell's site. :oops:

Bowen, Brownell's... the difference should have been obvious! :P

Save a lot of time and money, purchase a set of Hogue grips and then call Hogue and order the replacement screw that is also a lanyard. Cost for the screw is only $2.95 plus shipping. Bowen is nice but a lot more money.

The French Grips that were modified were from Trausch grips. I can't remember how the loop was formed but Im sure if you e-mail Mr. trausch he will fill you in on the French Guns. He has posted here in the past and has corresponded with several forum members including myself.

The French contract SP101s used the standard rubber grips with plastic inserts. The difference was that the actual gun frame had a 1/8 inch cut around the grip locator pin. The cut allow an extra part that was inserted before the rubber grip and also held in place by the pin. The rubber grips have a 3/8 inch hole in the back where the lanyard attaches. If I find my set I will post pictures.

I have seen a modification for a lanyard using the factory grip where a rifle sling swivel stud was mounted to the butt of the frame. A small hole was drilled in the butt of the factory grip before it was reinstalled. This was a very sweet looking set up.

Call Hogue at 800 GET-GRIP (800 438-4747) or (805) 239-1440 ask for

part number 00128 Lanyard 1/2" (length) ring screw satin nickle

part number 00129 Lanyard 1" (length) ring screw satin nickle

I recommend that you order a couple of each as Hogue only makes a batch or two a year. These are not standard catalog items.

And when you sell something you attempt to get the lowest price you can?
