Brownells Brownells Brownells 75th Anniversary - A Shooting Heritage

Traditional Shapes Plus Different Surfaces Let Every Shooter Get Their Favorite Grip Feel

Classic and contemporary looking mainspring housings combine form and function, so there is no compromise in grip control even though they look great. Flat shaped housings are available with popular 25 lpi checkering preferred by many shooters, as well the latest Snakeskin, Chainlink, Chainlink II and Chainlink III patterns that provide a secure gripping surface without the “sharpness” of machine cut checkering. Because they won’t abrade your hand or clothing, they make the perfect addition to competition, carry, and tactical guns. Some Chainlink models are also available with integral lanyard loop for attaching a weapon retention device. Traditional, Arched housing rides high in the heel of the hand to keep it close to the bore for minimal muzzle rise and excellent recoil control, and is available with a Grooved surface to provide a firm grip with little drag on clothing. Blank models are completely smooth to allow custom checkering or engraving, and are available in flat shapes. Also available for the Officer’s model in both blued and stainless steel with 25lpi checkering.
