    I made a set of grips from Curly Maple since it is a hard wood and has nice grain. I have a set being checkered to see how they look and will post a photo of them when they are done. Rick B

  4. A true talent makes me envious. The grips look sharp Doc.

    The Curly Maple are nice looking aren't they. I can make the smooth ones but the problem comes into play with my guy who checker's I'm not sure what he wants to checker them yet. I was thinking that around $35.00 shipped for these smooth ones would be appropriate for the time and cost of wood? Any thoughts? I may ask less for Walnut but again checkering if wanted would be more.
    Thanks for the comments everyone. Rick

    Doc, I have a Ballester molina with really crappy grips. Do you think you could make some good ones for that? $35 seems very fair for the maple and I like them smooth. I would also like the 1911 grips. Will p.m. you later...thanks!

    I'll take some for a compact 1911, $35 is great for me around here grips that look like that are like $60 or 70!

    Are the compact ones the same size? If not I would need a set to copy. Let me know and email me if you want me to work on a set for you. Rick B

    nice grips! but I must admit to lopping a bit of drool on the key board for the Remington Rand!

    That is a early Rem-Rand slide with large stamp. The botom is a 1918 Colt in the 480,000 range. I'm up for a swap for the correct slide if anyone has one and a deal? Thanks,,Rick B
