Looking for a Pistol Grip Shift Knob

I was wondering if any of you guys knew where to get a good pistol grip shift knob. I've been wanting one for awhile now but just can't seem to find one that sticks out to me. I want one that is black, or red or a mix of a two. Would greatly appreciate it if anyone would help! Thanks.

Uh, I don't know what you're talking about.. a pistol grip sort of looks like a the bottom of a gun.. hence the name pistol grip.

Would help if you knew what size the threads are. I'm assuming of course you have the manual transmission. I know Hurst makes some universal pistol grip shifters.

http://www.amazon.com/Hurst-1536010-.../dp/B000MSDMJG

When I had my 2006 Dodge Magnum I used to buy all kinds of aluminum trim pieces from a company called Billet tech. I had one of their pistol grip shifters that was milled out of a solid piece of aluminum and finished in a satin black finish (no logo). Was a bit pricey, but a work of art. If you could adapt the threads some how to the Focus or if the threads happen to be the same size ....

Found these. Not sure how I feel about them personally but it's all I could find in black or red. No idea why people dont make the more realistic looking ones with red or black wood. At least that I found.

That billet technology knob looks pretty great. I emailed them about the size of the threads. Thanks!

I gave up on finding a pistol grip that would fit. I found a ball style knob I liked and ordered it, looking forward to installing it when it comes.
