Here's a pretty decent primer if you want to roll your own:

I always thought these grips were the cat's meow...

You're very welcome! Glad you find it useful - and yes, that gentleman knows how to make grips! Takes a lot of trial and error and wasted wood!

The good thing is that the tools he's using, with the exception of that mill, are not outlandishly expensive for a hobbyist woodworker. You don't need production-level machinery to work on small pieces like this. Obviously the tricky part is drilling and counterboring the screw holes properly, but it can definitely be done with a drill press, steady eye, and lots of practice.

TennJed, What is that wood on the grips 4th picture down. I believe it is a ruger? I usually like simple grips but the texture on that wood is amazing. That is, if it is wood. I have never seen anything like it, looks like fire.

I'm not TennJed, but if I'm not mistaken that is a stabilized burl of some sort (amboynia perhaps?).

Very, very nice, TennJed. That's my favorite grip/handle wood. I have a bunch of Bark River knives with amboynia burl handles.

Where did you find those grips Mukwah? Been looking for something similar, but haven't been able to find any in wood.

Awesome, appreciate it! Got so caught up in looking on manufacturer's websites, in my local gun stores and on websites like Brownells and Midway USA, I didn't even think about just Googling "gun grips" or that would have probably come up haha. Have VZ grips on my 1911 currently, and I love them, but I want to build a 1911 in the near future and yours were the kind of grips I was looking for. Thanks again!

I'm curious, darkgael, how do you keep the percussion caps from falling off the nipple on that underhammer pistol?

I squeeze them a bit to tighten them up before putting them on the nipple.

Red Morell grips

I realize this is an old thread but I just had to share these grips with people of like mind. I just received them this morning from Brian Challis. The pics don't do them justice and neither does the lighting but I think they are good enough to get their beauty (at least to my eyes) across.

The depth of the grain is amazing and the veins look as if they popping right out of the wood.
