    Ok, about 2 weeks ago I got with Carl (woodnut) to make me some custom grips for a compact 1911 since I happen to have a few of them. I picked out some Arizona desert ironwood burl and the rest is history! I got them today in the mail and I dont know if the pictures do them justice, but they are the absolute nicest grips I have ever seen or owned and I absolutely love them! Thanks Carl! Anyone wanting a super nice set of grips should get in touch with Carl.

    Dan, those are some very nice grips.

    I tried to get Carl to send them to me and even offered to change my name to something else to match the initials.

    It didn't work. :D

    I have 3 guns they will fit so I can change them around, but they look good on this flashy one.

    Very nice touch. I am sure it will make it shoot better too. The best part of 1911's is the ability to custom make it yours. Enjoy.

    Dan I told Sam he would have to change his name to Double Dumb, then the grips might work for him.

    I need to say Thanks Dan for the nice set of pictures and the kind words. I'm so glad you like them. Some of the nicest ironwood I'v seen in a while. It really has the burl, and hard as a rock.

    Amazing work; that is one of the sweetest combinations I have yet to see. Those really pop on the stainless! Now we need a pix of that huge grin while youre shooting it Dan!
