Who's making replacement grips for Remington replicas?

There's a dude on E-Bay who seems to be molding them in plastic, and I think I saw one other set in white plastic (on dixie, IIRC), for about twice the bread.

Everybody's got the plain wood ones, I'd like to dress mine up a bit.

Love the gun... it's fast becoming one of my favorite pieces.

What Hoss said. Any replacement grips are going to have to be fitted.

But only for the Uberti Millenium & Ruger OA.

BarS TruIvory would be my first choice. It's a great, awfully realistic ivory substitute and fitting is free.

Arcticap, those grips you posted fit the 75 Remington, not the 58.

My mistake.
But they do carry grips for the Uberti Millenium and the Ruger OA.

I agree with Hoss Fly, I have bought several different grips from this e-bay seller (http://cgi.ebay.com/Poly-Ivory-Remington-1858-72_W0QQitemZ190225790956QQihZ009QQcategoryZ73944QQtcZphotoQQcmdZViewItemQQ_trksidZp1713.m153.l1262). Always good quality, but need fitting.

Two other sellers that have nice grips.

There's Tombstone Gun Grip Kits (http://www.tombstonegrips.com/) for Remington 58s and most clones.
