not sure which I admire most, the checkering, the forward cocking serrations , the finely blended beavertail.....

I wish it were mine.... (http://www.gunbroker.com/Auction/ViewItem.aspx?Item=197400224)

wish i could pony up enough to meet the reserve :whistling:

Hey, those are some nice grips. Made from some sort of wood, or root?

The checkering is amazing I wonder if Terry G did the work :whistling:

i can only imagine the quality of the customized feed ramp matches the awesome work reflected elsewhere on the pistol....

The speed holes in the trigger look hand done in the close up. Don't see that everyday.

What's up with the space between the grip safety?

"Modified" drop in beavertail. Most have a bad gap. The MSH looks nice, about the only thing on that gun.

$600 seems pretty steep for that. :dunno:

C'mon dude, that's the new Hammerhead grip safety. Much cooler than a beavertail. :whistling:

I am gratified that pos still hasn't been unloaded.

It doesn't look like there is much salvageable there.

Looks like a Chuck Rogers gun after 3 martinis.

CUSTOM GRIP'S COST 225.00 MADE OUT OF SOME KIND OF HARD TO FIND WOOD OR ROOT?

Even the holes in the trigger are messed up. There isn't much salvagable on that gun except maybe the MSH/magwell.

Guess you didn't see... the RESERVE is $800.00. Meaning minimum bid must reach at least that much.

Silly me. I thought I was actually going to see a refined, handworked pistol. Instead, I need to go wash my eyes and bleach my brain. :crying: Oh, an clean the puke off the floor.
Wow. That's a mess! :supergrin:

Sarge, love your grips, but your CFF formatting is as wrong as that handgun.

Sarge is just hatin' because he doesn't have any rare African root grips to sell for $225. :supergrin:
