Model 51 - need a measurement please!!!

Post by sclev-model51 »

I hope this isn't a duplicate post - searched for this but couldn't find an answer so thus the new topic.

My Grandfather returned from WWII with a Remington Model 51 pistol. Throughout the years, the grips deteriorated and eventually crumbled. I was given the gun by my father a couple of months ago, and have started to look into replacements. I have found that, unfortunately during storage, the Stock Plates were lost. Yikes!

I am getting ready to have Stock Plates made, and am going to create custom grips using birdseye maple. I cannot find information about the thickness of the Stock Plates anywhere. Does anyone know how thick the metal should be? I did find a site that shows me the design of the Stock Plate, just not the thickness.

Any help would be appreciated!!! I hope to get the gun back in good shape and display (and use occassionaly) as a nice family heirloom.

Sorry if this information is on the board already - I searched but couldn't find any previous posts.

Nevermind - found a location that provides reproductions of the plates. I'll measure them, however, and provide details upon receipt in case anyone wants the information.

Try triplek but (unfortunately) they sometimes list things they don't have :roll:
