1928 Navy Front Grip

Anybody else got an original? How does it compare to yours? When you work with a sample of 1 as your guide there is room for error.

Your an artist... such simple lines, but perfect!

Looks good! I have two that are kind of unusual. The first came from a Navy that the PD wanted a vertical grip instead of the horizantal. I was happy to trade them a WWII vertical in good condition. The only difference I see is that mine is slightly thicker and radiused more on the sides than your example. The front radius looks the same.
The other one looks like the 1923 military fore end. It seems to be about 7" x 3" x 3" with a finger groove. It was on a 1921 that was cut years ago. I've seen a few like it still in service. Jackson Michigan has the same style front grip on a gun they have on display in their conference room - if it's still there. If memory serves, it's a form 10 gun.
The two are packed away somewhere but I can look for them and try to post pictures later.
