Ok, the idea for this thread is to show any piece of beautiful wood that you may have or run across on the internet. We might even find a type of wood that people might not normally think of for 1911 grips.

Gummy Red Mallee vase


Thuya Burl guitar


Bethlehem Olive Wood candle sticks


Olive Wood Burl knife handle


Cinnimon Burl money clip


Buckeye Burl guitar


Tiger Stripe Maple knife handle


HUGE slab of Amobyna Burl

I know, isn't it? I was gloss nickel with engraving and gold accessories. The two mags were stainless but only 10-rounders (the 25th anniversary was during the days of the Clinton gun ban). The other two mags are the full 15 roundrs I had duracoated gold. The orginal grips (which I kept in the safe) were a very dull, bland light colored wood, with a silver emblem with a "25" on it. The satin wood matched it much, much better.

This is what the origionals were like. My particular set was much lighter than these grips, with no figuring at all.



BTW, it was a hell of a shooter... they took the best shooters off the production line before engraving and plating them for this limited edition (1,000 made world-wide).
