    Those are really for a hi point?
    Wow, I'll bet it really improves the ergonomics.

    You talkin' about the yellow ones? They are box elder, so they are wood.

    Do you do 1911 grips? I might be in the market...

    From one grip maker to another, I can appreciate the work put into the Hi Point grips. Word of caution if you consider selling, pay close attention to your price. It's easy to get a lot of money in wood and a lot of time in labor. You don't want to end up with a set of grips that cost as much as the entire gun! Making and selling grips can be a lot of fun. But it can also be a lot of stress. Make sure you do it for the right reasons. Good luck!

    My hole thing in doing this, is to provide a high quality product for a low price, so that people can dress up there gun. I put about an 1 1/2 to 2 hours a set. So far it has been good. I've sold 165 sets so far. The 380., and 9mm are $45. The 40., and 45s are $55 and that includes free shipping anywhere in the USA. I sold one set to a guy in Japan. Thank you for your warnings, and hope to talk again. Thomas grips.

    jna, they really are nice looking grips and really add a nice touch to the pistol. your prices are reasonable and i wish lots of good luck in selling them and am glad that someone has thought to make an item to dress up this pistol. it does need it!
