    Hello - I have an old High Standard Double 9 with original wood grips. I'd like to find a pair of original "ivory" grips, preferably with a little bit of age yellowing. Any ideas where I'd find such? Thanks!

    I thought of Numrich arms immediately. I just went there and they are sold out of all of the grips. I have a double-nine with original Ivory grips, I might be persuaded to trade grips with you.

    Hmmm. That's an interesting thought. Let me consider it a little more.

    Thanks!

    To GDMOODY - Actually, I've ordered the gun and I'm awaiting its arrival at any time. When it comes, I'll post a few photos of the grips for you to see, and if you'll do the same, we can talk more about a trade. OK?

    Thanks!

    I pretty much gave the pistol to my daughter (after I'm dead), I will call her and ask her if she would rather have the wood grips, If you decide that you want to swap. I personally like wood grips better. I looked for some a few years ago for it and did not find any available.

    Just let me know!! I will ask in the mean time.

    I've decided to hold on to the wood grips since they are original to the gun. Thanks for the offer anyway!

    BTW, there are two sets of wood grips currently listed on *********.com.
