    Eye Candy For Bruce (And Others)

    As I mentioned in my previous thread on my new Colt Combat Elite, I planned to replace the factory rubber wrap-around grips with wood stocks. Well, here they are.

    The stocks are cocobolo, done in the half-checkered style, bought from www.woodgrips.com. Price was $39.95, plus $1.00 shipping. Delivery time was 4 days. The fit, finish and checkering are what I would call flawless. I can highly recommend this company.

    I also installed an ambidextrous thumb safety that had been gathering dust in my parts box for a couple of years, waiting for a stainless steel frame to put it on.





    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    Haha - yeah Bruce is OK Crunch Thx Bruce for the pic tweaks - I would have done same otherwise - does help show those grips better.

    Those look great and I daresay the pics still do not do the color full justice. Cocobolo's do have lovely color.

    Chris,

    Yep, Bruce done good, all right!

    I would have tweaked the pics myself if I'd known this morning when I posted them what I know tonite. I was playing around with my Kodak Easy-Share program this evening & figured out how to enhance the contrast/brightness.

    Oh, well, live and learn
