3D Custom G10 Grips....Any Interest?????
« on: May 05, 2008, 05:56:26 PM »
A good friend of mine makes all of the custom grips for Springfield, Wilson Combat, Nighthawk and is working with S&W for their 1911, PPK, PPKs, etc....

He has access to many different color combinations of G10 and is a genius when it comes to 3D programming. I've offered to send him the grip panels off of my R9S to get the measurments from and will be getting a set in the next couple of weeks....anyone else interested?

He's going to let me take the orders and sell them, if there is enough interest.

Here are a few examples of what he can do.....these are just to show what kind of detail he can machine into a set of G10 grips.  8)

The Grateful Dead skull:


Various textures on a BHP and 1911:






Here's a Walther and an AMT...Ruger Mark I/II:

If he's doing all the grips for Nighthawk then tell him the ones he made for my new T3 are outstanding! I'm a wood grip kinda' guy so I didn't think I'd like them at first but as soon as I picked it up I got that stupid grin on my face that wouldn't go away.

Yes, Sir, those be the ones... ;)

I'll be sure to let him know and I'll post some pictures of my new R9 grips when I get them back and see what y'all think.

I hope that some interesting color could be an option.  Saw some in orange with a contrasting weave that looked pretty interesting.

Keep us posted.  Thanks

Got word today that the proto grips have been cut......little bit of palm-swell and all.  ;D

I'll post some pictures when I get a pair on my R9S.

He's making some for the Seecamps, too.  8)

The Grip maker in this thread is doing a great job, wonder if he will produce grips for the R9 ?  

Grips for the R9 seem to be hard to find, I hope if any are found, the photos will be posted here...

Gents, I spoke with the fellow again today and found out all of the programming has been done, the fixtures have been made and now it's a matter of finding the machine-time because of a run of large orders.

He's doing this for me as a favor for the R9's and the Seecamp's.....

I PROMISE I will post any and all pictures as soon as I get my hot little hands on a set that I can bolt on my Stealth.  :)
