No Dumb Blonds!




No dumb blonds here! Just all natural maple.

First set on Ruger SR1911.





Second set on DW Valor.





Not going to tell you where I got these until I get another set ordered.

OK, I got them ordered, these grips are from our very own "Ran" here on this site.

Not a huge fan of the SP1911, but damn that's a nice DW!

Hey...those look familar.

I gotta get my hands on more maple like that. Those grips came out of a chunk a friend gave me that didn't really look like anything until I ran it over the jointer.

Your honest opinion here, would it look better with SS grip screws? I'm not strokin' you here, I have gone back and forth as to which I think looks better.

I know this is real important stuff, but I change grips and grip screws on my 19911's more often than my wife changes purses.

I think black would help pull it together better.

Earlier, I failed to say anything about Randy's workmanship, fit and finish. All I can say is awesome!

I buy (and sell) a lot of custom wood grips. Many of them are from some of the more popular names....expensive grips BTW.

I've had two sets of grips from a very popular vendor that fit so poorly, I sent them back. I don't buy from her anymore.

Another vendor sends grips out that frequently have pores in the wood that have been left unfilled....big pores. I don't like that.

These two sets of grips are as perfect as they can get, IMHO.

Please don't inundate Randy all at once as I would like for him to get my next set shipped beforehand.

As a rule I really don't care for light color grips but on those stainless guns they look really nice. Congrats.
