Target Grips for Taurus 441

Postby HarryAlonzo » 06 Aug 2018 22

I've own a Taurus 441 for some time, and long ago despaired of upgrading the grips. There were none to be had outside of Hogue, and all of their offerings had finger grooves. On the way to other things, I stumbled across supply of Herrett's smooth Walnut target grips on GunsAmerica. They fit any of the Taurus K frame clones, if anybody's interested. I'm camping next to my mailbox.

Great disappointment. Nice wood, but the mounting screw is directly in line with the hammer strut. This apparently works for Tauri with flat hammer springs, but not compression springs. Shop was willing to provide a refund, but I opted to keep it as a project. How hard could it be to move the hole?

Shorten the strut spring seat? Guess I'd have to see it forward and cocked to make sense in my head.

When the hammer is cocked, the strut extends a lot further into the grip. The mounting screw will need to be offset fore or aft to miss it.
