Dixie Gun Works has an add on pistol grip for trapdoors that uses an extended wood screw through the existing lower tang hole. It works quite well on a Sharps, but will probably need some work to match the stock coloring.

I've added a couple of Ebony grips on Sharps and I get them from Tree Bone carving. Go to their site and scroll through the Sharps/Trapdoor section. You'll see a picture of one of my Sharps with the grip. They also have instructions on how to mount it if this helps.
Experience trumps intelligence every time.

I will not say my way of mounting the pistol grip is the best method to use, only a slightly different method and design which does not require an additional hole through the tang, and the grip can be removed leaving no evidence anything was ever there. Of course also, my grip was made with a longer mount area to go beyond the tangs wood screw giving more resistance to possible swivel . I experienced no problems tightening the screws down well and I did carefully remove wood on the under side to fit and conform over the tang with little to no chance of allowing any swivel.
