    Yes, I'm still saving for the CT Grips for that. I think the Rosewood grips make the Mill-Spec look pretty good.

    Nice Rosewoods, are those Hogues as well, or CMC?

    I'm considering the CMC slimline rosewoods for this guy:


    BTW, how do you get the thumbnails? I've got the photobucket thing down finally, but they sure take up a lot of space. I figure the thumbnails would be better, so if a guy wants to see the larger photo he can, and if not I'm not taking up so much of the thread...
    Don't mean to hijack, nice grips.

    Leatherneck, the rosewood grips came factory on my XSE Colt.

    To use the thumbnails, when you post a reply go to the place where it says manage attachments, hit browse and find your pics. Its pretty easy.

    Good to see you have a ''grip'' on things Bruce! Nicely too.

    You'll love the CT's when you get 'em.

    Nice Grips

    You're doing it right there Bruce ol' Chimp...I mean Chum.
    Nice grips. Rosewood & Cocobolo are great woods for grips.

    I plan on carring the XSE, and the factory rosewood grips felt to wide for my hand, also the front strap would defently need to be checkered if it has regular wood grips. I realy like the way the finger grooves feel in the rubber grip, and to bad you can't get CT grips with the finger grooves.

    Looks like the same grips I have on my Springer G.I.


    Not seeing G.I. printed on my grips is what hooked me. I think The G.I. printed grips looks tacky.
