I think you may be out of luck. I have a Unique with the grips badly warped due to the poor quality plastic they used, and I have not been able to find any replacements anywhere.

Otherwise, it is a very nice pistol and very durable.

Unique Modele D grips....

I am going to try to see if "VINTAGE GUN GRIPS" can come up with a set...or grip since it is a one piece.

I wonder how many people need a grip?

Western field 5

Hey, Is there any way I could get you to copy the manual for that gun and send it to me? Especially if it has an exploded view of the parts. I just got one as a basket case and need some help reassembling.

I got a set for the Model 52 from Vintage. Not the same color as the original, but they fit OK and look good.

Here's the page from Vintage Grips, with their Unique grips - I would check the pics of each to see if one matches.
