    i have finally finished (almost) my new Hi-Power grips. they're pressure treated rosewood.

    i bought them in a "DIY" format... they were cut and preformed into the style i wanted. they come oversized so you can fit them to your gun. once fitted, you have to do some finish sanding and seal them.

    i reformed the thumb and trigger finger rests to fit my shooting hand... they were originally ambidextrous. i also removed quite a bit of material from the palm swells to fit my hand better. lastly, i melted all of the edges, especially around the safety, slide release, and mag release recesses.

    i am able to handpick the blanks to get the desired grain. :bigthumb:


    only problem is my brother took my dremel and hasnt returned it, so i havent been able to buff the polishing wax i applied, resulting in the satin finish.


    and now for pics:
