No Problem,

and Cane the name is the same, I just lurk in the shadows. Sometimes its better to be unseen than heard!
But on a serious note, the grips on the Defender(yes its a 3 inch barrel LOL) are walnut raptor scale grips.

The ones on the 1991 are just some inexpensive black mother of pearl I put on it just because I liked the pattern.

I am glad that your Kimbers have not had the rust problems that have plagued the newer versions. Rust on a 1911 is just downright WRONG!! Or any weapon for that matter.

I hope for all Kimber owners that are having problems that they make good on their product and replace the parts effected.

But its fun to poke at Kimber owners till then

Chris

..and I hope that the rust problems are the result of a defect and not just poor maintenance. I take care of my firearms...and the Kimbers need a lot more loving care than a Glock or XD...just like Colts. If owners of polymer pistols have moved on to 1911s, they might assume that the care is the same. If that's the case, then they may be slandering Kimber's otherwise good name! Rust-free, they make a terrific product.....not a Colt, but a terrific product at a fair price.

Those are some very nice pieces folks,, thanks,, maybe I will figure out how to get some to this computer and post myself. Sarge those are some beautiful grips on the website. Is this your work? Excellent finishes indeed.
Perhaps a checkered osage orange would dress up an old warhorse 1911.
I will have to inquire. Nice grips.

Jeff

I don't think these are considered "nice grips", but they are very comfortable grips, and I don't think they're half-bad looking on black either.

Nice and simple checkered Coco Bolo on my BHP.

I used my LTC to model most of these. Pics could have been better but the wife has the good camera out doing things with it at the moment.
