    After communicating with her thru email for almost 2 years (sometimes it takes her MONTHS to answer), my order from her is finally done. I ordered 30 (thirty) wood grips from her selection of all designs, shapes and sizes, and now they are finally arriving. I do not have thirty 1911s, so I will be selling some of these after I have made my personal selection. For those who are unfamiliar with her work, try to Google the string "best 1911 wood grips" and you will stumble upon her name there. For those na tinatamad, here are a few links on her:

    Esmeralda Grips range from about $89 - $139 as you can see in her website. After I have made my personal selection I will just sell the remaining pieces for Php3500 each. Here are some of the units I ordered, if you have any specific piece that you like kindly pm me along with the picture and serial number. I'm not taking any advanced payments, all transactions are C.O.D.

    Awesome price man, much cheaper than the Ajax grips I've seen in store, and much nicer too.
