    From the guitar parts web site



    I have a set on a Commander and really like them.



    Like to see a carved set with a steer head or some such.

    Those grips look great Bill!

    Thanks Ugly! My customer seemed pleased by the result.
    I’m going to try my hand at a set of right-side Steerhead grips.

    Looking back up at previous posts someone said they wetted wet/dry paper. David’s online instructions recommend against wetting dark paper. It could possibly discolor the final product is my guess - or maybe is just gets messy?

    I used FLITZ on burlap to polish the ones I’ve been making. Burlap has a roughness that’s not too abrasive.

    Here’s some tips.

    Like everything else, buy what you can afford and that pleases you. For me that's real ivory and real sambar stag. Not knocking the new available substitutes just a personal observation. I used to buy affordable riflescopes too but now I'm much older, and somewhat wiser.

    More Resin Ivory...

    These 1-piece grips really dressed up this already pretty Charcoal Blue Uberti.

    I dared not get close to that blue finish - was all done with a tracing and using another grip frame as a slave. They feel good too!

    You also did a beautiful job on my two Winny1873's, 2 action jobs,fixed a loose fore end on a new rifle, fire blued screws, made dovetail blanks from the factory barrel sights and I could afford his top notch work.
    Thanks Bill

    Bill, Thanks for the link with polishing suggestions. I’ll print those pages for my 3 ring reference book. The offering has many uses. It’s kind of them to share experience.

    I used dark paper on the set I made (because its what I had) and never noticed any discoloration. I was using 3M brand and lots of water. I suppose different brands might have different results.

    Those look great.
    Can't beat Ivory or Ivory-like grips on a blue sixgun! Very nice!
