I was pleasantly surprised at the nice contrast when I put them on the Ranger. I actually ordered them based only on the nice figure and without knowing what pistol I was going to put them on, but since I seem to be accumulating 1911s I figured they'd find a good home at some point.

It's not the world's greatest picture, but if you would like to use it as one of your customer photos feel free.

I think I'll be ordering a box elder burl set next. Already sent you an email.

Some beautiful grips in this thread.

It strikes me that this thread has turned into what we call a commercial thread, as opposed to a discussion thread.

Look for Olympus' goods in the Buy, Sell and Trade: Holsters, Gear and Accessories forum.
