Like quality stocks?

Want that good ole MADE IN THE USA product?

Just jump up a couple of posts and when you find Sarge43's post check out his siggy and go visit his site!

I think you will find hand made grips that meet all your requirements and it's right here on the FTF!

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

Sorry for the break. I've been at BNCOC down in Mississippi for a couiple of weeks, then drill weekend right after that and have been frantically trying to catch up on emails and orders since I've been back.
Stealie - You chose well. Those grips compliment that weapon very well. Beautiful set up there!

Today's pic is of a set of Mammoth tooth and cocobolo's that I made for a customer prior to leaving for BNCOC. I hope you enjoy the pic.

Here's the first set from a block that I cut up over a year ago and have (im)patiently been waiting fo rit to properly dry ever since. Crosscut Macassar Ebony. I LOVE the way it seems that 3 or 4 trees just grew together at this point. Very cool wood. These got snagged before they ever left the shop. I kinda wanted to keep them for myself.
I hope you enjoy the pics,
Sarge

Sarge make beautiful and excellent quality grips. I can also state from personal experience that he's a man of integrity.

I just bought a set of Ajax stag grips on one of the 1911 forums. I sent payment off on Monday and I'll post pics when they get here. They're going on my Argentine Colt.

They're beautiful, but I just couldn't afford them until they sat for a while and the price was reduced enough to where I could.

I love that Colt and it really needed a set of sweet grips after the time and money that I invested in it. I figure it's an old school pistol and it needs some classic grips.

I saw the pics of the stags CA357 and they are VERY nice. You chose well.

Got a couple of sets for today. One is red Amboyna Burl that looks to me like fire with smoke at the naturally darker top of the panels. Do you see it?

The other is black paper micarta with the Marine emblem set into the grips and then covered with resins to provide a smooth surface. I like the great color of the emblem against the black.

Finally, someone else has found the benefits of leather stocks!

And if you like them now, wait until they wear-in. They just keep getting better.

No apology necessary. I'm glad you are enjoying them.

Got a bigger photo, they look like Eastern Diamondback.

+100 Dave!

I'll try to get a bigger/better photo up tomorrow. Thanks, they feel great. They're thicker than what I expected, but that worked out great for me. Won't be pulling to the left anymore!
