Thats a nice pistola, love the grips, but not on that particular two tone . A really dark, almost black, set of grips would be a nice match for the slide.

Still drooling...

No, I agree. The spalted maple doesn't go well. But I had these about ready to ship to a customer, so I thought I would throw them on and take a few shots.

I'm really thinking that I like the red color, but just not the plain jane double diamonds. I'm thinking something like a really nice snakewood or an amboyna burl. I'm going to order some slim bushings, so I will probably wait until those come in before I made my own set of grips. Thanks for all the compliments.

I've got the SS slide on mine (10mm, also). Watch where the empties land. If they go to the next county, then change the recoil spring. I run mine with a 20#.

I'm green with envy!! I love CBOB's. I had my heart set on one before the price jumped up and Dan Wesson decided not to make them (except for californian's).

I'd still love to have one!!
