Well, I guess I'm trying to say I'll try again another time.
Thanks for your concern buddy!

No problem, the project sounds very interesting though and pics are worth a thousand words, or so it is said.

One of the three sets pictured was cut to be used with a Wilson Combat magwell. If you look closely at my sig. picture that is a Kimber HD with Wilson Combat magwell and very simular shagreen grips I made some time ago.
I can get this material in just about any color. I'm able to use dyes over the skin to get a secondary color surrounding the round texture in the skin.
There is great potential of one of a kind, made to order grips. I should have thought it through before posting.
When I get my act together I will post detailed information and pictures.

Thats one of the most common questions I am asked. They are not aggressively textured. For carry I think they are great. With a tight grip they do have some bite. The feel is hard to explain.
Seeing the amount of post you have here at Calguns if you P.M or e-mail me your address I will send you you a sample of the material so you can get an idea of the feel and look.

Thanks

I might get some for my 1911 soon. I haven't seen much posted online about this. Can you indulge us with what you know? Maybe pricing and color schemes?

Ray skin. So far I have only made these grips for 1911's and a couple J Frames.
The problem is I can't take a grip blank from any firearm and wrap them the way you could with snake or shark skin.
The Shagreen skin is very thick and varies in density. Each set need to be fit to the firearm. I use an old 1911 as a template or mold.
I remove material from the back of the skin as I laminate the grips.
I mic the mil thickness as I cut the skin and adjust accordingly. Then fit to the firearm frame after the adhesive is applied.
Dan Wesson 1911 grips should not be a problem.

I apologize. I kind of jumped the gun on posting. As a matter of fact I tried to delete my original post. I found my color samples, various cut options and pricing was deleted mid way through my post. I'm blaming my kid.
I'm going to assume this thread is going to be deleted by the moderator soon.
When I get my act together I will repost with detailed information and pictures.
You havent seen much posted online about this because as far as I know I'm the only one making these grips.
Again I apologize. I honistly thought my post had be deleted.
Give me a few days.
Thanks All!
