    Spark grips - how are they glued?

    Gotta question about the rubber grips on the Sparks - are they glued on or, just a tight friction fit?

    Reason I ask is I took delivery from a dealer and the grips are positioned with the palm rest straight down, at the “6 o’clock” position.

    We tried twisting them but, they don’t budge - I figured I oughta ask the braintrust here before breaking something by using too much force ...

    Thanks in advance!

    I'm 99% sure they are bolted on like the rest of the range, you pick the little cap out on the end to reveal the bolt

    Yep, as 711jrp said they are bolted on, they are just unscrewed and you can take them off. Really easy job.

    Thanks demon ... lol, it’s only taken 59 years but, I’m learning “brute force” isn’t always the answer to things metal and rubber!
