    I’ve looked at some real beauties and nearly bought a set for my Dan 38 Super. Then I read too much on how they harvest for mastodon and it turned me off. Hydro power on river banks just destroys the entire area and everything down stream. Those are some wonderful salmon waters they’re turning into mud rivers. So I went with bison bone. But I can’t fault someone for seriously considering those grips. They’re remarkable.

    And just an on-topic reminder for everyone is that Cliff Schafferman of Cavery Grips/American Gripz used to sell grips like these before he began ripping people off. He just made a short appearance on 1911Forum under a new email name, but quickly disappeared when I called him out.

    Be very careful when attempting to buy expensive grips like these on the Internet. Buy only from established grip-makers and never do PayPal when it is Friend-to-Friend, as PayPal will not refund your money.

    I would be willing to bet that most mastodon teeth used in gun grips are not recovered in this manner. Most mastodon teeth are probably a byproduct of some other operation.
