    Project in the works #2
    Ok... so I like to tinker... maybe think outside the lines of norm.
    Besides the JEM build going on I decided to make the SS VBob a bit unique.
    I decided to send the frame and small parts to Tyler Gun Works to see what CCH on SS would look like. I was a expecting a little more shine to this but when I matched it back up to the satin slide, I thought the matte finish kind of blended together.

    While all that was happening, I had Bob (@Gripwright ) working his Magic on some beautiful wood for a set of grips that would be a perfect compliment to a polished colored frame.
    Having them next to the matte color wasn't a go....... POOF!!! a thought came to me and a swap was made with my EB EVO KC9 that bettered them both... IMHO
    Below is the results of efforts of many.

    Share your thoughts... I'm not fragile.

    I think it is a good swap! What type of wood are the green ones? I am looking for something similar but with more of a blueish hue for my stainless valor.

    Bob is the man! Good choice to swap the grips. I'm really liking both.
