    Default Got a "Grip" ? 1911 Pistol grips

    I have a Retired Navy friend near San Diego looking for wood grips for his Pistol.

    Not something I have the time or expertise to get into with my CW so I though I would ask here if someone was already doing them.

    Send me a PM and I will put you in touch with my Sony Buddy.

    Thanks,

    AL




    "Speaking of work, why don't you start engraving pistol grips and such. There are so many people that would eat that up cause they all think they're RAMBO Jr. Small and easy to do. I know I'd love to have a set for my 1911 with my E-9 anchor on one side and MMCM on the other! That would be purely awesome. Made out of walnut. Just a thought."

    That's what I do for a living. I bought the carvewright to bring production in-house and so I could offer more unique options. Unfortunately my machine is down, so I'm back to farming out the milling, but my partner is fantastic. Here are a couple sets of inlays I've done recently (hand carved - I do my finish and my inlay work by hand only) I have a few pairs of feathered Claro Walnut already cut and in the shop ready for finish, as well as a couple pair of standard straight grain American walnut.

    Well that's disappointing, especially since I have what he wanted already in the shop, just have to do the engraving :\
