Thx guys!

The center pair are a special dyed curly maple made just for a special gun. Very happy with those.

The left pair is a cross cut persimmon. The grain is just super cool, but I'm not real excited about how the dyed finish looks. Much better all natural IMO.

The right is black palm. They are awesome in person. Made them for magwell, but dropped one on the way to take pics and chipped a bottom corner. Oh well, I'll just notch them for a standard non magwell fit. Still have to notch the outside pair for the mag release, and then do the final clear coats.

If you ever make any more of those or some Spalted Maple be sure to shoot me a pm. I'll also keep checking your site. You and Sarge make some top notch grips.

Keep checking the website and like me on Facebook. I regularly use the natural box elder and spalted maple.
