It has been a while since I have been active on here and have missed it. I have kept my hand in it and, after seeing Hardhide's excellent handiwork, thought I would post a few of my latest.

Thanks Mike, having looked at the original post again the website is actually there in the signature section at the bottom so I guess I could have answered my own question, gun laws in the UK are a bit different so guessing there isn't anywhere near the same demand for this sort of work over here although I am sure there will be people who do it for clubs etc.

Still as I said before it's some very nice inlay work :lol: :lol:

The grips shown are specific to the Colt 1911A semi-auto pistol design (and many clones thereof). The frames and grips come in full size and a compact size. They were the standard issue sidearm for US military for many years.

Wow, those are really nice. As a lifelong Saints fan, I love the Fleur-de-lis grips. You've inspired me to try some inlays.
