    I like the before and after pics. I would have stuck with the red grips imo.

    Winter 2017/8 I fitted rough blank walnut grips to a pair of Mary's Cattleman and checked them like the grips that comes on Smokewagons. My eyes and hands ain't what they use to be.

    Interesting, I sanded the finish off my Uberiti SA yesterday. The wood on my one piece grips looks like very light walnut and did not appear to have any kind of stain. After sanding I stained mine with Fiebering (sp) brow shoe dye. Just looked at them and they look much better and I plan to put finish on them tomorrow night. Hopefully they will look the color of 1st generation Colt one piece grips.

    I use linseed oil for some wood product finishing. The general application is once a day for a week, once a week for a month, once a month for a year and then when ever, if ever needed again. The finish will improve with each coat. Coats need not be thick. I like the results.
