home do you remove the "semi-permanent grip locator" ? this is on a 88' gp
I never realized there was a 2 piece factory grip either, but when I bought my GP100 several months ago, and started looking at Ebay for the old style grip, sure enough, there they were. Apparently they were used early in production, but my Super RedHawk from '89 has the one piece grip. Did you know there was a compact grip with wood inserts also? Looked just like the original grip, but used the smaller SP101 insert. It is slightly shorter, but still allows all your fingers to get a purchase. It was standard issue on the 3" GP100 and 4" fixed sight GP100s. Have a look at Ebay, and you will see examples of each grip.I'm dying. Please someone post pics as I have not seen a semi permanent pin in a GP-100. Nor have I seen two piece grips. I've only seen the rubber grips with the inserts.
