Jordan Trooper Grips

posted on October 20, 2009

The late Bill Jordan left an impressive legacy to American handgunners. One of the more useful is the revolver stocks design that bears his name—the Jordan Trooper made by Herrett's Stocks of Twin Falls, Idaho. It is a pleasure to report that the company still makes these for savvy revolver men.

Several years ago, I watched as a skilled craftsperson carved out a pair for a S&W Mountain Revolver.

Jordan worked with Walter Roper to design stocks that would direct the recoil thrust into the palm of the hand rather than the web. When shooting double action, the gun doesn't shift in the hand as much, so recovery from recoil is quick.

I've used Jordan grips on a big .45 revolver, during week-long courses at Gunsite and generally did pretty well. Making proper revolver stocks is an art at Herrett's and they are still at it.
