Does anyone have a number for Melvin Tyler Manufacturing or any firm which sells their Tyler T-grip grip adapters?

Rosco,

I was informed about two months ago that Tyler has gone under. Melvin Tyler (from what I was told), passed away. The company didn't last very long after his passing. It's a shame, because they were one of the last historic gun accessory companies in the business. There are still lots of T-grips floating around, though. What are you trying to fit?

A friend of mine is looking for one for a round-butt S&W J-frame. Either finish would be acceptable, but he would prefer the silver. If anyone has one they wish to sell, let me know.

Have your friend check the odds & ends boxes at gun shops and shows. I've run across a number of T-grips that way. Usually dirt cheap too.
