GUNNYSACK M Roy Huntington GEMINI CUSTOMS’ COOL GRIPS arc Morganti of Gemini Customs has had his custom gun work featured in our pages, and it’s always cleanly done and innovative. He recently sent me a set of J-frame grips that were compelling and offered a surprisingly comfortable fit. This new line of exotic wood grips are made in their Kentucky shop by Marc’s wife, Karen. It’s obvious Karen has a artist’s eye and a talented touch with her tools. According to Marc, the new grip line will cover full-size and concealed-carry sizes for J-frames, Ruger SP101 and GP100s, Ruger Super Redhawk, with a plan to expand to cover more S&W sizes and even some Colts. Marc has produced guns with detail work that is always attention-getting. This new line of grips ranks among the best I’ve ever seen, from any shop, and will match the quality of gun work from Gemini. According to Marc, each grip is precisely machined on non-CNC equipment and held to tolerances within .001"! They are then hand-finished, hand-polished and waxed. The sample grips are among the upper 10 or 15 percent of the quality they see in their shop, and would be classified as their “World Class” grade, retailing for $279.95. Other grades start at $209.95, depending upon the wood, figure of the grain and other details. Marc said to phone and they’d be happy to chat with you about grade, wood available and models they currently fit. Our test grips fit my hand splendidly, and with the reduced diameter near the bottom reminded me a bit of the old “Fuzzy” Farrant grips of decades ago, which were always a great fit. Marc also reminded me they are making their own front sight replacements for Ruger SP101s and GP100s. The fiber optic replacements for your factory sights drop right in (a pin is included) and really light up that front sight picture! They offer several styles, including a 14K gold bead, from $32.95 to $89.95 so give ’em a call to discuss your needs. It’s a family-run shop, so you’re supporting American-made and a family at the same time. And what’s wrong with that?
