Looking to send out a 3rd gen for a pair of mother of pearl handles. Was hoping a forum member would have someone they've dealt with and would recommend their work. Thanks in advance.
Thanks kcub. I will have to check them out. I've used Eagle Grip before but their lead time is normally pretty long.

John. I bought these at the CCA show and was told they were carved by Dan Cheziek who has fitted a lot of grips for the annual CCA show gun. They do not have ruby eyes but that could easily be added. I am still in the process of fitting them myself but I would recommend having them fitted if at all available as they are a pain. Wet sanding is required and it takes quite a long time. Before buying these I checked with Eagle Grips and they will fit their product for about $60, However, at that time all the MOP they had was "presentation grade" at $900 plus, and they were not carved, just plain. Regards, keithWho can carve me a set of pearl with the steer on it,, you know the steer with the ruby red eyes. Who does this work ??
Elen Hunt & Importing won't make a set of MOP for my Police Positive Special. I even asked if I could send the grips off of it to them, and still no. (??) Seems to me that if they can make a pair for a SSA, PPS would'nt be any more difficult (????)Elen Hunting & Importing Inc.: Exhibition Grade Colt and Ruger S/A Bark Mammoth Ivory Grips
I had these gents do 2 single actions in mammoth ivory and tgheir fitting was second to NONE.
They also do mother of pearl though I haven't seen it 1st hand. I recall discussing it with them and they said it is fragile as glass, literally and only recommend it for display. Whatever material you choose, they can do it up right.
I'll see if I can get a better pic of the grips and post it. They are on a different gun now:Swamprat: Can you post more / different pics of those MOP's on the SAA with the flag? Im having a hard time seeing all if it in the picture, but what I can see looks pretty cool.
