    Another base pad set from @Gripwright. Feathered walnut this time. I’m not sure how to describe, but he cut these ones different with the way the figure flows. God I love them.

    I hate how much I love the look of that gun with those grips.

    Thank you sir. I’m going to request several mags I think next go around. I can’t use standard ones anymore, and I have used my first set. The pad is screwed in, just like the black plastic ones.

    Base pads are too cool. Bet you won't be dropping them during a match!

    I wouldn’t use the Turkish walnut set due to cost, but these are users. We’ll see how they look in a year though....

    What are they using to finish these grips?

    Awesome! I love these sets with the mag pad that Bob's been doing. The way he makes the mag pad sandwiched so it continues the grain of the grips is so cool. Does make it hard to get spares but I'm sure he could make em out of the same blanks.
