Tang Screws

Post by Road King »

Looking for Tang Screws for Model 1881. Pistol grip and straight stock. Larry Osborn does not made them.

I had to cut a straight grip tang screw, and lengthen it to make one. Couldn't find anyone that had them, and machinists who could make just one wanted way too much. So I cut one in half and spliced in a piece, and welded it back together. Then turned down the weld to smooth it.
