Abstract

An elastomeric O-ring compressed between a laminated plastic grip panel and a pistol grip frame provides a vibration dampening structure for a pistol. The elastomeric O-rings are placed around fastener bushings on the grip frame. The grip panels are secured to the grip frame by inserting threaded fasteners through fastener holes in the grip panel into the fastener bushings. Each O-ring is received by the grip panel in a corresponding annular recess that has a depth that is less than the diameter of the O-ring. When the threaded fasteners are tightened, the elastomeric O-rings are compressed between the grip frame and the grip panel. The compressed O-rings prevent loosening of the threaded fasteners by improving the vibration dampening characteristics of the pistol and by increasing frictional pressure between the grip panel and the head of each threaded fastener.
