I have some cocobolo inserts from 1chig.

He does excellent work, and I recommend him highly.

A friend of mine spent some time in Alaska and many Eskimos had the case head inlet into their rifle stock.

Whenever there was a communication gap, they just displayed the case head when trying to buy ammunition.

And it'll keep anyone from trying to hit it with something, out of curiosity.

Gp100man, im glad you like those, and thank you very much for the good words!!!! I thought about killing an unused primer and using it but decided to go with the fired one because it added charicture, glad i did.

My S&W M19 came into my possession with .357 case heads inset into the stocks. Fired primers, yes, that too. The primers eventually fell out.

Hey GP100man, Your gun's a bit out of time...

j/k Very cool look, I think I'll steal it next time I make some grips Way better than adding text or something gawdy, and it even looks like a miniature "armorers disc" like they used to put on the milsurp bolt-guns. I suppose you could even match a case head with the gun maker (remington, etc.)

Do you know if the case was just pressed in, or was it glued in place? I suppose you could "flare" out the cut edge of the case against the wood too, to keep it from ever falling out.

TCB

I think 1chig said they were glued in in case I wanted to change it to yellow brass heads.
