Rock Island .22 TCM Grip Thread

Hello TCM fans,
As some of you may already know, we have been trying very hard to make a grip for you that looks, fits, and feels right. We attempted to duplicate a grip, but did not have any luck with it. So we brought in an actual TCM frame to make a grip that has the "Derwood" feel our customers expect.

Our first impressions:
I, personally, really like the the gun. However, our team has found a few challenges that they are going to have to pass before we can start sending some prototypes out. We are VERY committed to this project and we WILL surpass these problems. But with these challenges, I'm afraid we oversold our expected date of completion, and I am truly sorry for that. We are now hoping to release this grip in early 2015.

I will be posting fairly regular updates to this thread on our progress to keep everyone in the loop.

We appreciate everyones help and support in this project!
Thanks,
~Taylor D. Stinson

When you get something, please post in the Armscor section with plenty of pictures.

Thin matters on this wide TCM frame!

Also, we will be making our grips as thin as possible!

Hello everyone,

Been I while since I posted an update here... With the holidays a lot of our local shops were closed, so we were unable to get much done on this project in December. BUT! It's a new year, so lets get workin!

We finally have a digital solid created for the TCM. What does this mean? It means we now have something we can tell our machines to cut! Our team is hopefully going to be making some prototypes later this week!

I will be sure to keep everyone updated on our progress!!

Thanks,
~Taylor

Hi guys,

We have not had success creating a grip that meets our quality standards. We bit the bullet and are having both the frame and grips converted to a digital solid.
Our entire team appreciates everyones patience with us as expand our product line. We want to make sure that the fit meets our high standards before we begin releasing prototypes.

Thank you again,
~Taylor
