A little to grippy or just sharp?

Sharp, and cut-outs are too many and too large. Not enough surface area for a good grip.

Also prefer not to have a metal grip when it's cold.

Eyeballing a few other grips, atm. One is a laser grip.

I've made a bunch of pearlized resin grips for different pistols, a handful of 1911 grips. The resin has a really cool look IMO, and it's surprisingly grippy whether cold, hot, or with sweaty hands.

My latest project is a 1911 built from an 80% frame and a pile of expensive parts. The grip panels on this one are stabilized amboyna burl wood. Unfortunately I only get a few hours a month to work on it, so it's been slow going.

That's going to be a nice piece of hardware, Seb.

Speaking of nice 1911s - While I've been searching, I came across Christensen firearms.



Other nice gear, too.



If I was going to be around longer, I'd look seriously. Quality gun with my name on the side.

Ordered a bipod.

Received a fucked up one.



Besides the outside damage, the inside of the box is torn. The bipod was used, or at least installed.
Some coating is stripped from the rail clamp, which is already rusting.



Sending it back!

Today the grips and bipod went back.
Also sent this back.

I got a Colt nickel plated 6-round magazine. I knew the color would be different than my stainless, but the plan is to TiN coat them, so I thought it would be okay. Didn't know that the nickel surface is textured. If I polish it smooth, the nickel will probably come off.

The Colt Officer's polished stainless 6-round magazine is discontinued, best I can tell.
Saw a used one on ebay the other day, but forgot to bid.

If anyone sees (a Colt brand) one for sale, please let me know. I could also use an unpolished magazine, and polish it myself.

Hogue grip came in for the .45.

This one's a keeper. Really comfortable, excellent fit, and the finger cutouts position it perfectly.

Former Pachmeyer grip was too small for my hand.

Will use this for plinking & target shooting.



Next grip is due tomorrow.

Wilson Combat Mag arrived.

Right away, I didn't like it. It sticks out of the receiver, and the sides are poorly designed at the bottom.



With the factory mag, I can get 2/3 of my pinky on the new grip. With this new mag, I can get the whole finger on. Hard to see with my gloves on.





Mag wasn't expensive. I think I'll keep it and try it out.

Here's the photo from the website where I bought it.



Here's the same photo from the actual box it came in.



Here's a photo of what I received.

Was looking at this laser grip. Hard to tell, but I think the carbon fiber might be fake.



Now trying to decide between basic black, or rosewood.





Black is starting to look boring. Gonna try Rosewood.
