You talkin' about the yellow ones? They are box elder, so they are wood.

Do you do 1911 grips? I might be in the market...

Thanks axxe55, I am currently the only person in the USA that is making them. If you search Thomas grips in your Google search bar you will find my facebook page. Again thank you!

From one grip maker to another, I can appreciate the work put into the Hi Point grips. Word of caution if you consider selling, pay close attention to your price. It's easy to get a lot of money in wood and a lot of time in labor. You don't want to end up with a set of grips that cost as much as the entire gun! Making and selling grips can be a lot of fun. But it can also be a lot of stress. Make sure you do it for the right reasons. Good luck!

My hole thing in doing this, is to provide a high quality product for a low price, so that people can dress up there gun. I put about an 1 1/2 to 2 hours a set. So far it has been good. I've sold 165 sets so far. The 380., and 9mm are $45. The 40., and 45s are $55 and that includes free shipping anywhere in the USA. I sold one set to a guy in Japan. Thank you for your warnings, and hope to talk again. Thomas grips.

jna, they really are nice looking grips and really add a nice touch to the pistol. your prices are reasonable and i wish lots of good luck in selling them and am glad that someone has thought to make an item to dress up this pistol. it does need it!
