Wow! What a great match on the color case hardened frame and those mammoth tooth grips. Just outstanding work by those artists and you for putting them together.

This is a workstation/organizer I built for some demo videos we are working on. That's my gun and I'm wondering if I will ever get it put back together. The red morrel grips in the top right are for a customer. The gun can be rotated and locked in any position within the 180 degree range.

If you haven't been there in a while, check out the new Challis Grips website.

Red Morrel with Challis Cut on a Wilson Combat Professional with round butt magwell. The knife with matching handle was made by Steingass Knives. Red morrel is a great wood for grips; beautiful, very durable and it goes well with blue, black, stainless and hard chrome.

This is an in-process photo of a clock made from exotic wood burl, coral, mammoth ivory and mammoth tooth. Just over 14" major diameter.

We will be listing it for sale in a few weeks. If interested, email [email protected] and we will keep you informed.

Darn Brian, when I saw that dark handle, I got to thinking about cracking some of this years pecans. Not seemingly as rewarding as 1911's but then ya' can't eat a 1911!

I dress all of my 1911's with nice grips but haven't gotten a set of yours . . . yet! I do have 12 sets of both stainless and blue hex bushings and rings. I really like the mount as I fee certain it will extend the life of my grips. All of my mammoths and ivories are protected as well as having a few left over for the near future. You make a great product in the bushings and again in the grips.

Slim flat cut mammoth tooth on a Les Baer. The natural blue tones in the tooth seem to come alive when mounted on a blue gun.

Red morrel on a Dan Wesson Valor. The color is more accurate in the first photo.
Thanks Rolf

Red morrel is a eucalyptus variety from Australia. Hard, durable and beautiful...a great wood for grips. Looks good on blue/black and stainless guns.
