You have way more patience that I do. I'd be in a corner chair at my FFL waiting for the delivery to arrive. :-].Thanks--been at the ranch last week got back yesterday and going back in a couple of days for another 4 days tired. Have a call into Jill at Hogue to see if they can do it. If they cannot my custom revolver Smith can, in fact made them before for me. I have a few of the rifle blanks and a couple warped a little while curing the last 10 years--stuff is a PIA but worth it. Even have a custom 308 Marlin built with it by Marlin and documented lol!
Will most likely pick it up tomorrow as it is not delivered yet showing"On FedEx vehicle for delivery" .
I think you'll like the 4.25 Python a lot. Loose screws notwithstanding, it's a very smooth and accurate shooter.
The mesquite grips sound amazing. Hopefully you won't have to wait long to source them. Good luck!
