* Yankee CF Grips *

Well it's certainly been a long time coming (and it will be a little longer) but there is enough progress made to share the news.
 †CF Grips will be available very soon. (the pics are not the best, shot by the machinist with a cell phone)
This is the first set of CF Grips cut out. (no mounting holes yet)



Also coming soon are Aluminum and a few other materials to be announced soon.

No prices yet.

John.  Carbon Fiber Grips; excellent.  Will you have blue?    :)

Right now the Black CF is it, other colors will probably come later.
  There are several other interesting materials I will be offering
as we get them made.

If anyone has a specific request lets hear it. Now that the program is finished for the machining almost any material is possible.

CCW,  Thanks it has been a lot of time and energy, but I think the final products will be worth it. :D

John.  Do you have a projected time of availability?  Doesn't have to be accurate, just a guestimate.

Just be careful with material choices.  The grips on the R-9 are subject to a lot of force on recoil.  Obviously CF or G-10 are no problem, but I have had a couple pair of prototype wood grips break in my hand after 15 or 20 rounds.  A non-stablized wood is going to be pretty difficult to do, as would other materials that don't have the requisite strength.

Duane,
Thanks for the warning.
   I'm not sure were wood is on my list but it's not near the top, at least not by itself. More on that later.  ;D

Corey,
  As soon as I have that info I will, some is dependent on the machining time (cost).

kj,
  There could be some finished tonight, but it will be at least a week before I have any in my possession.

I wonder how much Titanium would be?

Don't ask. >:(
I am in the process of changing machinists and will have a better idea of were I'm at in the next week or so.
  This has been a very trying and disappointing project for me, I had expected to have grips available months ago.
