    I'm looking some grips that I don't believe exsist. Brushed gold tone. For NH, DW and Guncrafter. Some sort of black grips with a gold tone medallion embeded.

    I can only find them for a Colt. I suppose I'll have to have some made. Who is recomended to make me some custom grips to my specs?

    You are likely going to have to source the medallions separately and then send them to a maker. If you want black I would look at gaboon ebony. If you want checkering highfigure grips or WoodCaliber. I currently have a set on the way from WoodCaliber in jet black gaboon ebony with Wilson medalions. If you want smooth or stippled talk to Bob. Examples of my medallion grips from WoodCaliber and Bob @Gripwright:

    That top pair is dang nice! I like those about as much as the bottom ones and I drool over the bottom ones.

    Thank you! I can’t take credit for envisioning either, I purchased them both on here from outstanding addicts. I am quite fond of each of them and both are very well made. I do have to send the ironwoods back to make the medallion align with the roll marks, not the grips. That is just my preference

    It's routine, talk with Bob @Gripwright he may have the medallions already as he did with with some NH medallions for exotic wood grips my Counselor

    Alumagrips are a supplier of engraved grips for GI with their insignia. You might want to check with Guncrafter.

    Thanks and nice grips. Hopefully I can get made what I have in mind. I have something very special in mind. :rolleyes:

    I'd like to have some custom made for several makes. Plus I would like to get them from one place.

    @OldCuz i got the gaboon ebony Wilson’s in from WoodCaliber today. Wanted to share so you can see what they look like as I haven’t found too many other black wood sets out there: 839AC397-EA16-4D20-B09D-24EC9B6378A8.jpeg CEDDFD35-C1B5-4A99-BEFF-90D5B24B62D1.jpeg

    Hi,
    Thanks for sharing. They look great! It's looking like the most difficult thing is going to be finding medallions like I want.

    Someone could do well if they could fill this void.

    My vote would go to Cherokee hills exotic grips.
    I own some of his work based off of what I've seen posted on here. It did not disappoint. Excellent work.
    @JM44 that top set is freaking nice.

    I ordered 2 pair of highfigure grips yesterday and talked to Jon I’m sending my Wilson medallions on Monday. I’m excited but he asked if I wanted them in the middle or higher. Do you all have a middle or higher picture to share?

    Higher is less common and more unique
