    Does anyone know if the grip panels for the imported "Super Comanche" single-shot .410/.45LC are common with any other revolver? I'd like to replace the ones on mine but don't have a clue what's out there that might fit.

    I got one of the nickel-plated ones, but it looks like it was applied with a spray can. The gun looks like it was made in an underground cave in Vietnam, but still 10x better than the Cobray/Leinad .410/.45LC double-barreled derringer I have. The grip panels don't stay put and twist too much when the gun fires. The side of the frame where my trigger finger enters the trigger guard is a hard 90-degree edge and bites my trigger finger on recoil. The "shot" choke for use with shot shells needed lots of clean up work with a needle file. It's crude looking and rough around the edges, but for the limited number of shells I've put through it, it shoots OK. I have not patterned it, mostly blasting 2-liter bottles of water at 10 paces. It certainly feels like it's putting more energy into the shot than the Cobray derringer, the 10" of barrel is worth something here. For what I paid for it, I got what I was expecting. I have not fired .45LC from it yet. Like the Cobray, I would not recommend shooting Golden Bear or Silver Bear shells with the plated metal hulls - they expand and stick in the barrel and are the devil to get out. The Federal 2.5" handgun defense shells with 4 OOO buck pellets shoot very nicely and almost completely perforate a stack of 3 sheets of 5/8" plywood.

    Hey Navy...

    .......if you ever pattern that thing, let us know how it does or even post pics if you can. I was always interested in one of those for pests and such. I figure shots at 15 yards or less. We have a Snake Charmer but with the short stock it's sort of a lame duck to shoot. Too short to shoulder, too long to hold like a handgun. Nice tight pattern though.

    yeah thats what I thought you'd say the fit and finish is where ive heard there lackin. would only use it as a 410 any way, would like to "modify" a Tuffy but thats illegal and would be Vary light! Guess ill just have to save up for a Contender or hope the Atf lets rossi make there 410 Ranchhand:evil:

    Hi new to this forum. I made a pair of grips out of wood as the plastic ones would move. Slot of sanding on small belt sander along with hand sanding.
