Hi,There are quite a few plastic and metal grip caps available, most will need to be fit to the gun. For a wood grip cap they only sell blocks of wood that have to be shaped and fit to the stock. There is American walnut, English Walnut and Redwood available from Brownells. http://www.brownells.com/search/index.htm?k=grip+cap&psize=96It is not a part that is ready made or stocked by any supplier. I can give you the name of other places that have exotic wood that can be used too. Rosewood and ebony look good on grip caps. If you are not able to shape a grip cap yourself a local gunsmith should be able to make one for you. Tom
