    Josh, I think oak loses it's color when dry, but it will still have the burl and maybe some figure. Let us know how it looks after you cut it!

    You need to put it in the dry, if it is not. Laying open in the truck bed will not let it dry properly because of rain and so forth.

    How much would a set of 1911 TFF grips cost if there are any still available?

    This was a one time build and I think I still have 3 or 4 sets left. Don't know off hand what the serial numbers are, but if you will email me I will look up the numbers and the price to the members was $65.00.

    This is my 7 year olds 1911 that Carl made the custum grips for.
    That is Thumper that has ben inlaid into the grips made out of, I hope i spell this right. Theiyan burl.
    he is on both sides.
    You will not be disapointed with his grips. I promis.

    I still have about 3 or 4 pair made and serial numbered. I am not sure on the fit of the ballesters, but if a standard 1911 grip will fit so will mine. The TFF grips are $65 per set.

    Another gratuitous pic post from a satisfied customer.
    I finally ordered my set of TFF grips.

    Not sure if they're going to stay on this pistol or if they'll go on my PT1911 instead, but this one does a nice job of showing them off. :)
