Great idea, and nicely done. Hope you didn’t get any Hoppe’s oil on the lingerie!
Is it a niner or a .45 ACP? Did you have to inlet anything on the inside for the magazine?

Glad you Guys liked this one! I had to make several other pairs of grips for my sons, pistols out of Paduak and Purle Heart so I thought I owed myself a set! Douglas Bordner, it’s a 45acp, cheap LLama knock off so to speak of the original Colts. I don’t think any gun oil got on the nighty-LOL-there was no inletting for the magazine as that is completely captured by the frame handle casting-I did have to inlet the top backside of the grip to allow room for the slide lock and safety retaining pins housing. Dadoo, sure you can borrow it, I may need another set of finger prints on it!

WB (You can just call me Doug, I only sign on as Douglas so no one will go all the way to Dougie by way of being chummy), I think you pretty much ruined the weapon as a throw-down with the initials carved in the grip scales.
