Walnut grips and pump handle for a Crosman 1377.

This piece of wood was salvaged from a wood pile! It’s a nice chocolate brown with small pores and very hard for walnut. I wish that I could get my hands on some more firewood like this.

These are for a fellow airgunning friend for his pistol. They are sanded to 1500 grit and finished with spray on lacquer (rubbed in with gloved hand) and waxed with Minwax furniture wax.

What do you think?

Thanks for looking and comments always appreciated!

Nice looking, I keep thinking I will make a set of grips for a few of my pistols. Maybe one day.

This is great, love this project. There are definitely treasures in the woodpile. Couldn’t ask for more, woodworking and firearms!

Very nice. I’ve made a few grip panels for a few of my pistols, but have not attempted anything like this yet. Well done.
