I can also attest to the high quality of Sarge's grips; I've bought several sets from him, but no ivory as yet.

Take care,

Rick

I also make exotic grips for 1911's & SAA's. I use all exotic woods and stabilize where possible. I also use Wooly Mammouth ivory and teeth, petrified dinosaur bone, jade, pet wood, and about anything else you can think of. I make each grip by hand so thin/thick/palm swell/mag well types, inletting etc is no problem. For great ivory color in natural material, camel and giraffe bone are great and save money.

Please beware collins woodcrafting is a rip off artist. Not to be confused with the above mentioned collins wood craft, this is david collins at www.collinswoodcrafting.com

He stole my money and did not deliver the grips. Wont answer phone or email.

Dan, I have to be honest-I wasn't all that big on Ivory, more likely to be interested in the scrimshaw that was done on it.

Then you had to show off that ocean blue mammoth ivory...

oh man are those some beautiful grips! I'd spend the rest of my life looking for a perfect 70 Series Colt to put a set of those on!

Oh hell, who am I kidding, they'd make my Stainless Springer look even better!

I just purchased a set of grips from David and he went FAR above and beyond what I expected!!

Spoke with him on the phone for a while and was quite impressed with his generosity!

His grips will adorn my 1911's now and in the future.

He did not know me from Adam, and went out of his way to accommodate me.

Sarge, my V-Bob will be in the first week of July, my 26th aniversary present, and I think Ivory on that black frame would be a good match. Could ya help a brother out?

Looking forward to purchasing a set of ivory grips from you here soon! I was the one that inquired yesterday regarding them on a DW Valor.

I have to give a plug at to Jim at Nutmeg Sports. He helped out with the recent Bob
Rodgers pistol that is shown under gunsmithing section on this forum.

Jim is an old Colt guy and he came through with flying colors after another ivory grip provider scewed the pooch. Jim's accessibility and service during the process was over the top. And as you can see from Rodger's pics his ivory grips are impressive.

If you get the chance, take a look at his website gallery sometime. Its worth it.

Suppliers of ivory 1911 stocks or grips

I used Boone Trading Company, http://boonetrading.com/. I called them and told them about a project I was doing for my former commanding officer in the 1st Infantry Division in Vietnam. They were great to work with. Here's what they did for me:



It worked out pretty well.

Mike

That is tastefully done. I read your thread on the other site and it made me tear up a bit at the end.

Thought I'd bring this thread back to the top. I found Dan Chinnock via some web searches and was fortunate enough to snag a nice set that he posted up earlier today. Www.danchinnock.com He called to confirm my specific needs (confirm which model, Ambi safety, etc.) and we had a terrific conversation. Grips due to arrive on Tuesday! The following pictures are his, hope he doesn't mind.

Mammoth Ivory Grips

I have spent the last couple of months setting up to make exceptional grips from mammoth tooth. I have a superior method for stabilizing the tooth that adds both strength and beauty. The attention to detail for which I have become known for wood grips is equally applied to my mammoth tooth sets. Until I can prove that these grips will hold up to use on a working gun, they are being sold for exhibition only.



The image is large to show the detail; the closer you look, the better they look.
