As promised, I have finished my first batch of pistol grips. These are hand made by me. They are as true to the original Swedish made version as I can make them (no Pickled herring smell though). They include the necessary longer action screw threaded and machined by me. All metal is rust blued and very durable. The wood is stained, 3 coats of BLO applied followed by 3 coats of 1/3 stock wax and finally several coats of Howard "Feed-n-Wax" wood preserver. Further information, prices and pictures below.

(See bottom of this post for contact, buying and shipping instructions)

Here are a couple rifles with them on:

The included long action screw:


Feel free to ask questions or request additional photos. PLEASE DO NOT USE PMs. My inbox fills up too fast. Instead, please email me directly at [email protected]. PLEASE POST AN "I'LL TAKE NUMBER __" IN THIS THREAD. For multiple buyers of the same grip, the date/time stamp of the post stating "I'll take it" will determine the buyer.

FORMS OF PAYMENT include USPS money order, personal check (held until cleared), paypal (plus 4%) and, of course, cash if you dare!!!

SHIPPING IS INCLUDED in the price for all US orders (up to three grips and I'll combine shipping). I ship them USPS priority flat rate small box. For foreign country shipping, I'll quote shipping after the interest to buy. I do not charge any handling fee and go by what the USPS website quotes shipping as.

I have tried all these grips on various Swedish Mausers and all fit and function 100%. However, If you are not satisfied, returns are OK. Return shipping at buyer's expense and I refund all money minus the shipping cost I incurred (This is my hobby, not my business).

Metzgeri , you did a fine job reproducing a hard to find & expensive item . Great job on the screws , since you don't have a lathe ! Should be a benefit to Gunboard members & others as well . Good luck .

You did an excellent job with these reproductions.. which is why we're allowing you to sell them inside the forum :).

Seems I recall the originals selling for $25-30 in about 1998 or so. I never bought one. Still don't have one.

An original pistol grip recently sold on Gunbroker for $132, and I'm not sure if it even included the longer screw. These are a great deal if you didn't get an original when they were available. Nice job Metzgeri!
