    Is it OK to dry fire my new 4" korth Mongoose? That's a dummy round by the way...

    That’s a gorgeous gun.
    Are the vent ribs available on the nighthawk Korths?
    Are unfluted cylinders available?

    I believe the vented barrel and nicer grips were a limited run. Mine came with the rubber grips so I bought these from Korth. I was a bit disappointed in the fit. I’m sure Korth would have taken them back but just did some dremel’ng and sanding and now the gap on the frame is acceptable. I bought mine used from a forum member here. Saved some coin.

    FYI George at migunslinger has a 5.25” vented Mongoose if anyone is interested.

    Those grips are originally from Korth (have similar pair that came on my new Super Sport).

    How long does it take to get a set of grips from Germany?

    Wish they where stippled like Nill grips. Does anyone have a newer korth with newer nill grips?

    Stentor has the right grips. I contacted Korth Germany to ask if they would fit my NH/Mongoose. They said yes, but again I had to do some work to close the gap on the back strap.

    Note Nighthawk sells them also. They look like a higher grade of wood, but around $100 usd more. The wait was not to long if I recall. Maybe 2 - 3 weeks. Quicker than it’s taking CZ to send me some screws for my optic mount.
