I got a pair of Dark Sun Clip Grips for my NAA Mini.
« on: April 28, 2023, 03:49:35 PM »
I got a pair of Dark Sun Clip Grips made of black G-10 for my NAA Mini .22 Magnum Convertible revolver. These normally come with a stainless steel clip and silver color screws to match. They sell them with a black clip and screws for $5 more. And they have Duracoated colored grips and clips, as well as wood grips, Micarta, barbecue guns, ladies guns, etc. But I just had to be different. I think it's too obvious it's a gun and not a knife in your pocket, so I got the Van Meter Deep Concealment Clip Grip. It comes with a black clip and screws, but I got a silver clip and screws too, so I can switch it to match more of my knives. The gun sits a lot lower in the pocket with the clip in this location. It has screw holes drilled in the standard location too if I change my mind about this one. I won't be winning any fast draw competitions, that's for sure. Not even mid-speed draws. If you buy a left-handed standard grip it will have screw holes in the right grip too. You get screw holes! And you get screw holes! Everybody gets screw holes! I'll take some pics this weekend and post them soon after. Some with the boot grips that are currently on the gun too.

This video explains why the grips are the size and shape they are. It makes sense to me. They have a bunch of other videos on YouTube. I need to see what they're about.

That's what  thought too Peg. I still haven't put them on, but I'll post pics when I do.

I bookmarked the link. The ones I wanted were out of stock, so I'll try again later.

I was looking at the wrong ones before....now they're showing the G10's in stock....

BUT....BUT....
It looks like the only model any of them fit is the Mini Mag 22 WMR and not the 22lr model....which is what I have.

Yep. Magnum frames only. If you want to buy another mini revolver, you can get a convertible model like mine and still shoot .22 LR. You lose some concealability, but gain a better grip, and the ability to carry a spare cylinder loaded in .22 WMR.

P.S. I'm going to try to get some pics today if I can stay awake. Yesterday I got up and ate breakfast around dinner time, then went back to bed for the night.

Heck I might buy a set pf spare grips for my Mini and order a set of these and see if I can swap the clip. Should only have to drill a couple of holes in the proper alignment.

If I can fit a beaver tail I should be able to do this....RIGHT??  ;D ;D ;D ;D  :o  8)

How hard could it be? Zip. Zap. Done.

Since I have an extra clip now I've been considering putting one on my boot grips but they look too durn nice to mess up. But if I did mess them up it would be a good excuse to buy an engraved boot grip. Since mine are smooth it should be easy enough to attach a clip to them, if the surface is flat enough.

Great stuff, gonna order a pair for my Mini! Is clip sturdy? I've had some bad experience with similar ones on knives to be honest, they get all shaky n stuff.
