Ok , My daughter is 19 and she has her own Rossi 38. She wants her permit when she turns 21 but she wants a pink gun. She likes revolvers and I'd really prefer to get her a Ruger, maybe a sp101, or a Smith, something better than the Rossi. I'd want her to try it out first anyway and decide for herself. What are my options on making atleast the handle pink? Or making the gun itself pink? I've done research and could'nt find anything on these guns as far as pink grips. I found Taurus has pink ones, but I want her to have a good solid gun and Taurus doesn't fit the bill for me.
Magnum Research offers a TCN finish that has a pink look to it. Also a very durable finish. I think they offer the baby eagle in this finish.
taurus makes a model 85 with pink grips.
Charter Arms has one called the Pink Lady in their catalogue
I'm nearly positive that COLLINS CRAFT will make Pink grips for you from Corian. Which is beautiful stuff.
Don't get Pink Ivory Wood grips because while they are a beautiful Pink when first made - they turn brown after a while.
I recommend checking out Jim's Gun Supply - Offering Custom DuraCoat Firearm Refinishing . They have a lot of options available, grips,whole gun pinked, or whatever. Am debating getting my fiance a Pink Glock 19. (yes, I know it is heresy, but you know how the female of our species is...)
you could always get her a j-frame and have it dura-coated pink or even pink camo. could do the same with a small semi-auto as well.
Aat are you sure she hasn't seen that flyer from Gander Mountain?
There is a pink Taurus Millenium Pro Semi-Auto Pistol
GANDER MOUNTAIN EXCLUSIVE
Starting at $379.99
thru Jul 31
Gander Mountain Exclusive semi-auto pistol is offered in a .32 ACP, . 380 Auto or 9mm. Pink polymer grip with stainless slide.
Give it a look, let her decide if she wants to switch to semi-auto from revolver.
A pink revolver??
Here you go:
Or the grips I bought for Lima:
Regarding the SP101, there is a seller on eBay that makes custom inserts that go inside the rubber grip, but I don't see any listed.
Also, it looks like Hogue made some for S&W
Here's an example of what I've seen for the SP101, they're not pink, but still pretty, I've seen pink but for the life of me I can't find a link or remember the sellers name.
Yeah this is the only other one I've found besides the Taurus. Not real crazy about the Charter Arms and it being only 12 oz it wont do her. She hates my 642 because it is so light. A pink Hogue Grip would suit me fine, but they dont make them.

This is perfect. I hate to think I'd have to narrow my choices of guns down to only pink ones. This is a great option.
