New Old Grips For The Kimber




I bought these custom ivorywood grips from Esmeralda back in 2007 for one of my Colt Commanders. It looks like they may have found a new home on the Stainless Target II!

Those look awesome. I haven't decided on what grip I want yet, and these have me re-thinking a light color on my incoming SS Target II like yours. I was thinking staying very dark to black until now.

I bought my Pro Eclipse used and it's factory grips (which I do like) were pretty worn, so I ordered a pair of Sarge's grips in figured brown Bubinga:
