I just finished making these Ivory grips. It took me a few days (on & off) to make them. I wanted to make them a little bit different and also "more hand filling" than the usual "Exact Factory Colt Pattern" standard wood type grips.
So...They are slightly thicker & I cut them all the way out to the edges of my Combat Commander grip frame. I also brought them all the way down to the magazine well & did not do either the "mainspring housing pin sliced corner cut" or....the bottom grip bevel.
They feel really nice since they allow the Colt grip to form a perfect oval.
I needed to use two much larger and thicker slices of Ivory. I think it was worth it though.
I might add a relief cut at the location of the magazine release button. I think it needs one. Anyway...here they are.
By the way...I uploaded this photograph to the NEW CombatCarry.com "Photo Hosting Service" that hardly any of you have tried yet.
I swapped out for a Hopefully Better Photo. This digital camera stinks for close~up photos...indoors or out.
