Made some grips for my redhawk this time. Wood is Macassar ebony, kinda muted for this wood but they still have nice color. My own finish, which is just about perfect for something you really need to hold onto and its not shiney at all.
Revolver grips are much harder to make and fit well but these Im really happy with the fit, it just takes a little longer than say a set of 1911 panels.

I really like these, especially on the Redhawk. Enjoy.

Thank y'all. Glad you like them.

Working on some Gaboon Ebony 1911 grips right now. I wish I had better checkering tools, and knew how to use them better too.

Thank ya tick. Thats actually what got me itchin to make a nice set of grips for it, I had just finished a complete disassembly, down to the very last screw,plunger and spring, a good cleaning, stoned the trigger sear (yes, I have all of the proper jigs and stones and most importantly the knowledge or at least enough to make me dangerous 😉) polishing all metal to metal contact points, new spring kit from Bowen, and finally reassembly and using a grey Scotchbrite pad rigged up on my benchtop grinder I did a complete refinish of the entire gun. It came out fantastical too, though hard to photagraph. Over on the Ruger forum I got alot of great advice about how to go about the refinish.

I like my Redhawk, I can fire all of the full house 44magnum level loads I want in it, and I do and dont have to worry too much about beating the heck out of my S&W m29. I like shooting magnum loads in a magnum handgun.
