Ajax polymer ivory grips for OM Bearcats

At CDNN.

http://www.cdnnsports.com/bearcat-iv...l#.VlocDYvlu01

They are new old stock from the original Ajax company.

Apparently for OMs, since they don't work in my new model Bearcats. You can't cock the hammer because the hammer strut hits the grip screw. I was so disappointed, because they were a good fit on the frame and looked great. They only show five, not counting the two I'm sending back as soon as they email me a Return number.

EDIT: The screw was a bit short, too; I had to go buy one just to find out the grips didn't work......... Took an odd 3-48 screw, about 15/16 long. Most aftermarket grips take 4-40 or 5-40.

No big deal, but disappointing. A sixteenth of an inch more forward, and they would have worked.

Altamont makes Ruger's factory grips now, and their factory laminate Bearcat grips could fit better. No match for the former Lett company. I don't think Altamont makes aftermarket for Bearcats.

I've got two sets of Lett's, in Bolivian rosewood (very dark) and fancy walnut, that fit perfect out of the package. Also no-name set of black micarta, and no-name gray pearl plastic, that both fit about like factory.

I've never understood why Hogue doesn't offer Bearcat grips.

I have several sets of the Altamonte grips for Ruger SAs and they are a decent grip for the money. Their "super wood" is actually a dyed birch laminate, but good, tough stuff.
