Thanks, I really appreciate that. I would probably buy a "donor gun" that had that and maybe a few other parts. One of these would be a pain to make but it is the only part that am missing from having a 747 that had been Fired about 25 times before my friend (deceased) decided that he was going to put a pistol scope on it and thought that he was dealing with aluminum until he put a little heat on it. He threw the halves away and was "going to" order new ones but never did.

Well, I received my left hand grips today from Vernon Austin, he sent me several pictures of them before shipment and I was impressed. BUT, there is nothing like "meeting them in person", they are far above what I expected. I have quite a few handguns and I don’t believe that I have any to rival them they are perfect in every way. Thanks guys for letting me know about his fantastic work!

I wanted something a little bit different, this is Birdseye Maple. They are so perfect that they almost look "fake". I am actually a "Gun nut" from way back, I have over 60 handguns and I don’t believe that I have any that are prettier than these and fit any better. They fit like a bank vault door. I am building a 747 and am going to put ambidextrous American Walnut on that one. Will probably order those grips in the next two weeks. Let me tell you this, I have a Ruger Mark I that I ordered a set of custom left hand thumbrest grips for in 1965. I paid $40.00 for them and they were hard to get and nothing like as nice as these.”


 

Those are sweet!!
