    Member Patrick D. loves his Ironwood. He sent me a Colt Commander to build into his dream carry gun and provided the ironwood blanks for the grips. Flat topped and serrated with HD Retro rear sight and a Yost "gold line" front sight. Kart NM barrel and EGW thick flange bushing. Checkering is 20 Lpi with an arched MSH. All new bar stock internals and a Derr Precision bobbed grip safety. One of our grip makers Crystal was able to make a nice set of grips from the scales. The finish is brushed hard chrome. What do you think of ironwood?
