    Eye candy

    Not military, but I thought some would enjoy the view.













    Six shooter grips are a lot of fun, they are pretty simple to make. Its ironic that they actually take me longer than the HK/CETME grips - I'm not geared up for production so for single actions I'm doing a lot more eyeballing of where stuff goes and how close to cut to lines.

    Yes, two very nice revolvers with great grips. What type of wood are those two?

    I think I need a pair of your grips for my Ruger BH. Maybe in Claro walnut like the wide G3 handguard you made me or Birdseye maple.

    Ya missed one Scott!

    Top is a 44 mag Vaquero with French walnut grips.
    Then a 357 NM Blackhawk that belongs to a friend, grips for that are Claro Walnut.
    Last is a 327 Single Seven (that I haven't shot yet even) with more French walnut and a better match than the Vaquero. That birdshead has a fantastic feel, I can't wait to do some shooting one day when I don't have the dog with me - he's a bit of a fraidy cat dog, but otherwise I like him a lot.

    What is the finish used on those grips? They shine just right.

    Thanks guys, its always nice to hear the compliments

    Nevada, the finish on the two French walnut ones is shellac, the less refined type called button lac that I had left over from refinishing a beech K31 stock that was beat to hell. The middle one I had to sand down the shellac and switch to oil, I did too many shellac coats and was losing the smoothness. Shellac can be tricky stuff, though it makes for a really fast finish when I get everything right.
