My XSE with Stags;



I will be installing these Colt 150th 1986 medallions shortly. Sarge, what type glue should I use? The grips are real stag and the medallions are flat backed (no studs) and appear to be brass. I will be using a Forsner bit to make the divot.

Those are nice Canebrake! Very cool.
If I were you, I'd scuff up the back of the medallions pretty good with some 80 or 120 grit paper and then just use your walmart twin tube variety epoxy. As long as it's a slightly textured surface, it will hold well. It's not like there's going to be a force actively pulling them out anyway. The epoxy will be clear too, so in the event of any excess "squish", you can clean it up easily and completely before it sets and it will help fill any gaps without drawing attention. You know this, but just in case - make sure the hole is big enough to let the medallions drop freely in to place without having to be driven or pushed, but no bigger than that either. Either way can cause problems in materials that don't have a lot of "give" like stag. Hope to see pics when you get it done!

Thanks for the info bro.

As I wait anxiously for my pistol to arrive I have been "window chopping". Some of Sarge's:


Without a doubt, the best looking of all!

Of course it's not my gun.

We have a photoshop king in our midst. You did a good job on those! ;) I can barely figure out how to load my pictures here let alone combine them with stuff like that.
+ 1 Slawth, props bro!

PS - Canebrake, if you think that buckeye set is nice, wait until next week when I post the pics of the two primo sets that I'm finishing now. ;)
Keep 'em coming!

People often see faces, animals, etc in the wood. What do YOU see?
This pair is great!

I do see an animal (here goes Mac with the herp comments) and its an alligator head looking down with the eye and forehead bump toward the rear of the grip.

Here's a set I just finished last night. I have been wanting to make these for a long time, but just didn't have the time. POW/MIA has a special place in my heart, and I think this is not only a beautiful tribute to those who didn't come home, but also a reminder that they are still out there.

Sarge, I too have that same Font Emblem Symbol Rectangle Circle
spot in my heart!

I salute your tribute and complement you on your skills used to complete the end result!

Like quality stocks?

Want that good ole MADE IN THE USA product?

Just jump up a couple of posts and when you find Sarge43's post check out his siggy and go visit his site!

I think you will find hand made grips that meet all your requirements and it's right here on the FTF!

Sorry about stealing your idea Cane. I love these grips!
Finally, someone else has found the benefits of leather stocks!

And if you like them now, wait until they wear-in. They just keep getting better.

No apology necessary. I'm glad you are enjoying them.

Got a bigger photo, they look like Eastern Diamondback.

+100 Dave!

I'll try to get a bigger/better photo up tomorrow. Thanks, they feel great. They're thicker than what I expected, but that worked out great for me. Won't be pulling to the left anymore! :cool:
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!

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.

+1000

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


Wow....you guys have some beautiful grips. All I got is OEM walnut. I am embarrassed.
This thread is gun/grip porn....OC
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!
