I just never liked the round top grips from Bill Ruger's coping of the Remington .36 pocket model (except for its spur trigger).

Couldn't find any grip makers that would make them so I had to make them. I raised the center screw ~1/4" because I felt the Ruger grip screw was too low and didn't look right, especially with the sq top lengthening of the grips. Had to modify the mainspring strut for the screw to clear.
