Aircraft Control Grip AH 2242
On offer is an aircraft grip in exceptionally good condition. The stamping to identify it are not very crisp but having taken expert advice we are told this is an AH2242, made by Dunlop and was fitted to the Hawker Sea Fury IV and the Harvard Mk. I and II. The side of the grip is stamped CGF 9477. The brass gun button is fully functional with the fire and lock controls working perfectly and the pneumatic brake pipes are still in place and these are marked ‘In’ and ‘Out’. The grip cover is in perfect condition as is the grip itself and the only issue is a little corrosion to the alloy casting on the top of the grip adjacent to the gun button and a little of the original paint is chipped away. This style of this grip is classic WW11 fighter and could well be mistaken for an early Spitfire or Hurricane grip with the main difference being the lack or a brake lever as the Harvard had foot brakes fitted. And of course the price!
