Need some advise folks. I just bought a pair of cocobola wood 1911 grips and got them today. They're traditional double diamond, fully checkered. I'd bought a pair from this company years ago and love them. They're ultra thin and very dark reddish brown but more towards the brown. The checkering masks the pattern of the wood but they look great on a parkarized GI 1911.
Well the pair I got today looks extremely "orange" by comparison. In the diamond areas it's a bit more reddish brown but in the checkered area it's very very orange.
I'm thinking of returning them (if they'll take them) but wondered if these will darken naturally and just be fine with some use?
