« Part 1: Shaping small handgun grips-divert your eyes if gun-hater Part 2 of Small handgun grips - shield your eyes if sensitive series no next part

Took it up to 600 with walnut danish oil.
It took on a nice red hue.

The grips are 3mm fatter than stock; just a little extra

They look like they were made for it Al, which of course they were. :-) I like the final colour.

^I switched Snuggies, Lysdexic. If you look carefully, on THIS one, there’s some dog snot on the sleeve;)

The grips came out great but Al, I’m sort of a 45 kind of guy so I find it a little hard to get very excited about a 32. LOL

Al, you are classing up the little gun. Way to drop the metric scale on us.

I’m a .45 guy too, Saddle. This one was on it’s way to the melting pot. I figured I’d give this little pea shooter a shot. It aims surprisingly well with the fatter grips. I might bob the hammer; haven’t decided yet.
