With sincere thanks to AutoMag for the grips and Blackhawk for a couple of his beloved Federal cases, here is the result of my first attempt to embed the case head into a set of grips.

The Armscor mahogony grips were violated with a 1/2" forstner bit, sanded with 220grit to soften the rim of the cut, and treated with four coats of Tru-Oil. The case heads were removed from the case using my Christmas present from my wife - the dreaded Dremel and affixed to the panels using a silicone adhesive.

Again - thanks a million Auto - they are exactly what I wanted for the Gold Match.

Thanks for the kind words folks. I've got a small collection of cases (.38, .357, .44 Mag, .45acp, and .45 Colt) that are destined to be decapitated as soon as the right project comes along.

Paper weights, more grips, pen holders, how knows?! Have Dremel, will cut!

Nope, gotta break from the crowd. They turned out really bad, you need to send them to me and I will make sure they are properly disposed of..... on my pistol.:biglaugh:

:) Cody - you are a funny man :)

Thanks again for the kind words. This was much easier than I anticipated - certainly not perfect, but presentable. The key is a drill press and forstner bit.
