Grip screws

I've lost a grip screw out of my 1045 Warthog. I've searched high and low across the net to no avail. Can anyone give me a lead?

Re: Grip screws

Don't know about Para Ordnance, but my experience with other large gunmakers is that they'll typically send out a small replacement** part or two at no charge, or at worst for the cost of shipping. Find their 800 number and give 'em a call.

**As long as it's not something that needs gunsmith-type fitting, which of course wouldn't be the case with stock screws.

Re: Grip screws

Thanks, Brian

I'll give it a shot. (yes, a pun)

There's an 800 # in the manual.

Para

I recently lucked into a P10.45 and it was missing a grip screw. I know Colt type 1911 screws don't work so I went to the Para Pro Shop online and ordered a set of four with allen heads. They weren't expensive, but with Para the devil truly is in the details: grip screws different; grips different; mags different. I got the screws in about 4 days. Still can't find any custom grips for the widebody anywhere. Just the Hogues and that is what I have. Para wants $49.95 for the factory plastic grips.
On the good side I took the P10 to the range yesterday and it shoots very well indeed. No failures to feed or eject and the sights are dead on. I have a Sam Andrews "Carjacker Crossdraw" holster and it fits like a glove.

Different screws?! I never woulda thought it. I was shocked when I heard Taurus used different grips because of their slightly different ambi-safety, but different screws is ridiculous. Same with their extractor. It's little things like that that rob the 1911 of it's modularity that'll keep me from buying certain makes like that.

Have you thought of making grips? I made a set for a RIA 1911 and actually fitted them to ME. I used a dremel to carve/dish out material to reach the mag release better, and for my 3 "grip frame fingers" on my dominant hand. I still haven't put a stain/sealer to 'em, but booooy do they feel right.

Grips

I did think of that but when I asked a gripmaker on another forum he told me that since the grips on the widebody actually wrap around the rear of the grip frame and have the blocks that fit into the frame to cover the rear of the trigger that it really wasn't feasable for him to make them. I figure if he did want to do them then I wouldn't stand a chance.

Dont know if they will have but Brownells stocks Para Parts. Also have had very good luck with calling Para USA customer service and they have sent me parts. Good luck.

What if you used the inside of yours to model the inside of the new ones? I'm wondering if you can make nicer grips than even a custom maker can. I mean, you have no deadlines, and you don't have to worry about putting more time into them than you're going to be able to sell them for. If you can, pick a wood, get some woodworkin tools, and get at it! Take your time and fit 'em just right, perfect fit to the gun, perfect fit to your hand.
