The following five pages show grips made in the most commonly requested woods. If you are looking for something a bit more unique and rare, have a look at my Rare Woods page. All images are examples of the woods used. You are not buying the exact grip you see pictured. I go to great lengths to make sure my selection of woods is extremely close to what you see offered. Grain patterns will vary slightly and character and color will be very close. Book-matching and reverse end-grain matching insure that both sides of your one-piece or two-piece grips will be mirror images.
I don’t pre-make grips and ship them to customers. Grips are made for your revolver when I have it in my hands. Fitting at this level requires the entire revolver, not just the grip frame.
Prices shown are for the “competition” grip on all Single Action revolvers.
You will find complete explanations of all grip profiles and costs on the “Grip Profile” page.

streaks that are usually wiggly.

Joe, Sorry this email is going out late. This year has been extremely busy for me between SHOT, Safari Club, covering the fights and having 5 months of back to back magazine articles, I finally got some time to sit down and write a proper thank you note. The grips came out better than I thought was possible. It literally is like holding a museum piece in your hand Thanks again, the craftsmanship is superb and in 25 years of shooting and collecting, I have to say they are the finest grips I have ever used. Everyone who sees them, even a few friends that aren’t “gun people”, have been blown away by them. Pictures do not do justice to your work. Mike Searson
Joe, Got the guns today. Incredible work all the way around! Ivory looks spectacular! Much better than what the pics show. I really like the yellowish color. I noticed you did some little extra things here and there, and I want to thank you for taking such pride in your work. It’s hard to find great work, and great service anywhere…you’re the real deal. That makes my 4th gun with your work…can’t wait to send another and can’t say enough good things. Thanks so much. Rob Taylor
