    A few weeks ago I posted pics of this 1973 Colt Cobra that I purchased on Gunbroker. It was modified to facilitate pocket carry, bobbed hammer, shortened grips, and a white sight insert that I could do without.

    I took it to the range and found the grip to be horrible. Like most of my other old revolvers it needed a Tyler T-Grip. I ordered the proper T-Grip for an Agent, Cobra, Detective Special, etc...but it was too long because of the shortened grip. It extended approx. 1/3 inch below the frame:

    So, I took a Dremel to it...the T-Grip, not the gun. I cut it to the proper size, deburred, and buffed it to replicate a factory finish. I touched up the exposed aluminum with some high temp black enamel applied with a toothpick. It looks like an unmodified T-Grip. It is one of the few things that I have "Dremeled" and not completely screwed up. Now it is ready for a place in the carry rotation. A few pictures:

    Nice job but the finger groove might be weird. Try finding a Pachmyer grip adapter and do the same. The Pachmyer one does not have the finger recesses.

    Nice! Great little carry piece! I like the front sight insert too.

    Looks very well done. Not much of a finger rest at the bottom though. How does it shoot now?
