I'm new to this forum and I'm a custom grip maker and 1911 enthusiast myself. I'm looking forward to joining the community over here.

That last picture is spalted maple. The other photos are box elder burl that has been pressure injected with acrylic dyes and stabilizer. We can do any two color combinations imaginable.

It is probably one of the top 5 requests.

Here are some pictures of some exhibition grade desert ironwood on a Springfield Trophy Match:

Do you make slim grips? Do you do any checkered or engraved grips?

Yeah, I can make slim grips. You just have to have the correct bushings and screws. I don't do any checkering because hand-checkering is so labor intensive and time consuming.

I personally don't do any engraving, but I was recently approached about a partnership with a company that does engraving in rifle stocks and things. I haven't had anyone interested yet, but engraving could be done. Cost would be dependent on how detailed the engraving would need to be.
