Re: How to customize your 1911 grips
Here's something a little different for me, but did turn out quite nice.
I met this customer at a gun show, he had brought the frame for me to use in the making of the grips. He was interested in white micarta. I could not find a piece of white micarta large enough to make the grips. So after a phone conversation with the customer, we came up with Snow White Holly. To me it looks almost identical to Ivory. I delivered them yesterday and the customer was really happy with them. He said he liked them better than the micarta he wanted in the first place.
As usual the picture does not do them justice.
