How much for a set it stippled Gabon Ebony?

Todays set is a gov set in camel bone. Pretty cool stuff, but it's hard as he** to find pieces big enough to actually fit the frame when fab'd. If you don't mind 1/8" of frame showing along the MSH housing, then there's plenty to be had.
I was lucky and got my hands on some bigger stuff, but it's all gone already. I may need to go OCONUS to find more.

Fair enough, here are a couple of pics, although these pics do not do the grips justice.

They fit perfectly right out of the package and feel great!

Here's some fossilized coral. I don't know how old the coral is, but it is definitely rock now. I think the red and blue together is a good look.

Sarge check your PM's please sir!

Oh yeah and...wow. You're definitely "that guy."

A true artist and craftsman.

Way to be "that guy."

Now I've gotta figure out which set of grips to buy for my new .45 ...

Here is my Defender with the sweet Burl grips I got from Sarge43. Quality grips that fit perfectly.

Thanks Stealie, I really like the walnut. The scales are a different look but function well, providing good grip but not harsh on the hands.
