Let me find that "perfect" set and I'll send them to you. I get a lot of comments on the photo of your stainless pistol with the comp, so I'll have to find a few sets that go good with stainless.

Remember it has a Smith and Alexander Mag-Guide installed.

OK - brand new to me (just delivered yesterday) Brown Kobra - Gov't size. Built w/10-8 rear sight (.140 notch) and 10-8 flat trigger (3.5#) added. Also had rear slide serrations added. These are the 1st quick pics snapped with iPad last night. I will take some better photos with the wife's digital camera.
These pics do not do the grips or the gun justice....

As arrived - the Ed Brown factory grips are double diamond Cocobolo wood & are really much nicer than I thought:

I guess my post got lost some how. This is something I'm working on at home, the grips on my gun are just too small even for me. This isn't complete, it's at about 65-70% on the outside shaping, and about 70% on the inletting. INTENDED to look like Jerry Miculek's, and I plan to mount it with the Hogue monogrip stirrup device.

It's in the 1911 sub-section, but I would think this would be a good spot for your photos. I appreciate the level of difficulty involved with making revolver grips. That's no small feat!
