Thanks for posting bnaples. I really like the feathery figure in that set of English walnut.

Thank you for building them for me. They are exceptional in every way. You were right about leaving enough thickness to have a small amount of coverage for the plunger tube. They feel great and look amazing. I wish I could have you build me a set for every pistol I have. If your payment is a smiling customer. ...you are a rich man today. My face hurts from grinning.

Thanks. I work hard to make it that way so it is nice when it is noticed.

Brian made these grips for me out of Desert Ironwood. They are polished to 12,000 grit. It's not Brians normal oil finish.
These are gorgeous. It's how I've always imagined my ideal grips.

Thank you. I've been blessed with the privilege of putting grips on some beautiful guns, and with customers willing to share their photos.

This thread was part of my dedicated sub-forum, which I have discontinued because it didn't seem to be of much value, but cost $75/month. Forum management was kind enough to move it here to the Merchant Deals and News forum. If you have photos of your gun wearing Challis grips, feel free to post them here.
