Desert Ironwood from Sarge!!!




I've been procrastinating putting these not so great pics up for a while... I got these grips from Sarge a couple of months ago and I LOVE them. Of course, my pics do not justice. In the sunlight, the grips actually have a bit of sparkle in them. The best part of these new grips outside of the appearance is the fact that the gun fits my hand better. I'd order from Sarge again in a heartbeat.

Those stocks are beautiful. In fact, I can't even imagine any finish in which those stocks would look great on; blue, black, green, stainless ~ IMO, those stocks would compliment all of them.

Outstanding.

I have read that the harvest of Desert Ironwood is tightly controlled in the US. What a beautiful, dense wood.

And Sarge is not only extremely talented, but a gentleman to do business with!

Outstanding and on a Centennial Model to boot. Well done and very nice looking. My EE Cent also wears a set OD Ivories from Sarge. I ogle that gun everyday I pass my gun cabinet.

Congrats!

Those are dead sexy. I was actually eyeing them on Sarge's site as sold. Great pickup.

Just had a pair shipped to me last week from Sarge. I'm already fighting the urge to browse again. I love the desert Ironwoods, remarkable looking figure in the wood and they do justice to that EB pistol

That is a work of art --- beautiful! Makes me drool. How I wish I could legally import those myself. Unfortunately for such items I have to ask my dealer to do it for me and have to wait for them to bunch it with their shipments --- if they are willing to accomodate me on it.

It really is hard to beat the utter beauty that nature gives us, isn't it? I'm glad to see that people still appreciate it. To the OP, I'm very glad that you like the grips and hope they give you years of service and pleasure!

Those look great. I have been wanting a set of ironwoods for one of my pistols. Your pictures may have pushed me over the edge.

Those are very nice, congrats.
As soon as I get my custom bobtail back I'll be checking with Sarge on some of those great looking grips.
