Note to anyone thinking about leather covered stocks:

The leather covering increases the handgun grip approximately one size. For example;

If you are comfortable with a standard single stack grip then you should start with thin/slim stocks and have them covered.

If you like the contoured, fuller style stocks you will be fine with the standard stocks being covered. I'm sure that's what suprdave has and it sounds like he likes the extra heft.

If you need thin/slim stocks to be comfortable with your 1911 grip you may want to avoid leather covering. (Or go with lizard.)

I find rattle snake to be a great covering and it provides good purchase of your 1911. It should, it gives the snake traction for it's only mode of transport!

Plus, it's a manly addition to an already manly handgun!

Yep, that's your ^ MANLY Western Commander blitzed out of his skull on Bourbon at the Canebrake Hilton!

I figured I'd include the engraved flame grips I got a while back. Hopefully the pics are better!

Much better Dave. Those look like prairie rattler skins.

A +1000

The flames are cool but I bet when you put 'er to work you prefer the rattler stocks.

Your Defender looks great with those raptor scale stocks. I have a Defender, those aren't OEM stocks. If they were, I would have never changed out the goodyears.

We like to think of it as gun stock eye candy!

Check these out. Made for a Railroad Police Officer in Ivory Micarta (paper) with his medallions inset and then covered with clear resin and reshaped. Satin finish.
Enjoy,
Sarge

Sarge, I cannot wait until I can afford a set of your grips, you have no idea!

Another home run for the Sarge!
Amazing as always!

Speaking of which, let me know when you have any more of that nice dark Buckeye Burl...
