    Metaloy Hard Chrome
    Ivory by Nutmeg Sports

    Jim at Nutmeg Sports fit these to his own Brown KC. Fits pretty nicely. Grain and color are first rate. Jim allows you to specify color and graining (at no additional charge) during your order. He does his best to pick a match.

    that actually looks pretty good. I wouldn't have expected Ivory to appeal to me on a Stainless type finish.

    Thanks for the comments. I feel I need to purchase a white dinner jacket and a white patent leather holster next. :lol:

    The ivory sets well against that bead blast finish. Great looking blaster.

    Nice one, gocanes. My Colt in the pic has some of Nutmegs on them also with a nice, aged finish. I generally don't care for ivories on a bright gun but yours has changed my opinion.............

    That's hardchrome. Not bead blasted stainless. You must never make that mistake again, or be forever banished. :tongueout:

    No mistake. The metal is bead blasted to produce a matte finish. Polish and you get shiny, blast and you get varying degrees depending on the media.

    I really like that. I was thinking of getting my 10mm CBOB hard chromed....maybe ivory grips?

    I've never really been a fan of ivory grips until I saw yours. That grain in the ivory really sets the grips and gun off nicely. Looks fantastic.
