old sniper II grip?

I found this at one of the local shops in their parts buckets. It struck me as a bit odd since it wasn't curved on top for a sheridan but is very similar. Is this just an old sniper II frame? it also has no bottom line holes.

More than likely it is just an older WGP frame (yes like for a Sniper, Sniper II, and early cockers). Back then, these pot-metal frames were common on WGP and AGD because of the flat top, but as you know Sheridans had the curve on top to fit the tube design. They all look similar, but there are slight differences. Looking at your pics, it appears to be an early pivoting WGP trigger before they had the sliders. And it is hard to tell from the angle, but is that an oval slot just behind the trigger (on the frame) that would be for the actuating rod? If so, it would point to an early cocker frame.

Any one else feel free to correct me if I am wrong.

looks like an old wgp pivot frame for a sniper to me, that hole behind the trigger looks like the safety. if you look at a normal wgp slider the actuator slot is above the trigger opening. the old pivot frames were snipers only if im right, they had no place for an actuating rod.

it looks like that frames botom is not parallel with the top, it looks angled back so im saying old sniper 1.

Billet frame from a Sniper 1 or a Commando.

Since it appears to be missing it's guts, lemme know if you need a set. I've got an old pivot frame that's cracked, but the trigger and sear are still in-tact (I think...it's been a while since I've seen it). Also, the frame I have is pot-metal, not billet, but I'd imagine the innards are one in the same.

Correct. They are cast from Zinc. If you need the guts for them an early sheridan sear, trigger, and safety should work.

And they did break all the time. I have one as well thats broken.

I should have more than enough internals for it but I have nothing to put it on. I do have AT parts that should work with this grip but then I would still end up with an ATable grip and no gun to attach it to.

hi ho, hi ho, into the bucket it goes
with rusty old fish hooks, and sticky playboy books
hi ho

Save it- It would be a great candidate for a "retro-look" sniper for stock class. Just dont hang too much weight off the grip frame as the tended to break the rear tang, or strip the bottom line holes. Make sure you dont get any corrosion going with it, as they will positively vanish if the corrosion gets going.
