Dude... nice grips! Those aren't stock, are they?
No, they are not and I have an identical spare set for sale. First come, first served. Message me if interested. 3 have already requested price.
My one regret about the Glock is that I can't put a nice pair of wood grips on it. Is that coco-bolo? And feel free to correct my spelling on the name of that wood! ;Q
Yep, Cocobolo (one word). An extremely dense exotic hardwood from Central America. I once had a humidor made from it. Between you and me, after getting the Smith 1911sc, my Glock 36 sits in the safe and cries for attention.
I can bet!
I do woodworking on the side and like to work with cocobolo for small projects-- the wood is extremely expensive and doesn't come in very large boards that are workable.
In addition to my Glock, I have a S&W 686 that I carved my own grip for. I made a mold for my hand out of clay and then carved the grip from black walnut so that it fits my hand perfectly. Beautiful grip! Of course, it's kinda special that I'm the only person who can hold the gun! Ha!
Let's see a pic!
Not the greatest photo (and my first on Glocktalk), but you get the point...
And one more...
I'd like to eventually get a handbuilt 1911 and make my own grips with this same wood, as I've still got enough of the block left over to do it. Probably the best $15 I ever spent!
