    Gents,

    The #1 reason I wanted to find out who made these dang grips was to let their NEW OWNER benefit from that provenance . . . . .

    Unfortunately, I could not track that information down, even with my best ninja Google-Fu skills AND the combined brain-trust of multiple forums. I guess the maker of these "beaver gnawed" grips will remain a mystery . . . . .

    But wait, there's more . . . .

    Seeing there will be a very small chance that Zoid will acquire a Les Baer in the near to extended term future, I felt it was a shame to just put these grips into the ziplock bag of Zoid's other unloved, unmounted grips. So in the recent spirit of altruism that has been infecting our ranks of late, I thought re-homing these to someone who actually has a Les Baer to put them on, was the best karma deposit I could possibly make.

    Now, for the rest of the provenance:

    I came into possession of these really nice Les Baer custom engraved grips through the generosity of one of our own forum sponsors, Joe Chambers.

    @Joe C knew what a grip-ho I have been in the past. These were take off grips from a pistol he was working on I do believe, and sent them to me in appreciation of my abandonment of TTT as @tac45 's marketing deflector, and working for him as an extremely-unauthorized free-lance marketing rabble rouser he couldn't stand the look of them either . . . . .

    Well, these grips are too nice to leave languishing in a ziplock bag, so we will do the same routine as we did with @Jimhoag 's lucky băstard give-away.

    Pick a number, FROM 1 to 100 (are you happy now @El Perdido ?). On Friday evening, before y'all finish your adult beverages for the evening, we shall have their new owners.

    No purchase necessary . . . . .

    Oh yes, what are you playing for? Here are the previously posted photos, plus photos of the enigmatic "other side" . . . . .

    Good Luck to all.

    That’s a funny ad Zoid!
    I’ll be the first to pick a number for the hell of it since I recently acquired a Liteweight Comanche from 1995 they would look cool on.

    49

    Ps: I hope you find your Baer soon!

    Those are the grips that I bought on TOOS with a set of Nills, Joe also said he would take them on this site. I saw Joe wanted the Nills so I sent both set to him as a surprise.

    Maybe I ought to just send these beaver gnawed unwanted woodies to @Babboonbobo as he is the first (and only) "I'll take them" so far . . . . . . .

    I'ffn these don't get any more "love" by tomorrow morning (meaning more entries), I'll send them out to Bob when I get the files mailed out tomorrow.

    Damn, Curly is always the last guy in on the running jokes . . . . . . . sheesh.

    So much for my theory of them being "take off grips" . . . . . . . .

    EDIT: edited the original listing for "truth-in-giveaway" purposes . . . . . .

    Since I do have a Baer and have already accepted a few of your extensive grip collection items, I'm not above trying to get more. Especially at the discount price of $0.00
    Perhaps if I win em and put them on the Baer. I'll take a pic of it and give you... and only you, a chance at a random draw for the "gun for free" give away. If you win, you have a Baer & the grips back.
    My number choice is 72
