Ok this is a project that kept getting back burnered for a while now so I finally pulled the trigger on it and here they are. 1917 style high wood grips for the water cooled Browning's. These are all American walnut and the have original escutcheons so you can use your screw for them. I also made them to the more common WWII retaining pin location but also WWI location which is the same as 1928 Colt water cooled. I can ship them with a coat of boiled linseed oil like the ones on the back plate in the pictures. They are 50.00 a set shipped for board members and checks are fine if I have dealt with you before but USPS money orders for others. Thanks, Russ

Thanks guys I am putting the escutcheons in today while at the shop and will get some better pictures up. They were all book matched sets because the devil is in the details.

Just an update on the Book matching, I spent 4 hours trying my best to match them up because the guy that took them off the machine just put them all in one box! My eyes are now wonky at best and I did my best to match them up but some sets are more of a challenge than others when dealing with 100 sets. Needless to say the shop owner that made these was less than impressed with his guys lack of attention on this detail.

Just an update guys, I had so many guys that wanted the WWI/Colt 28 pin location I pulled the trigger on having 50 sets made and I should have them in a couple days. My guy was moving fast on them until Sig put in an order for 12000 grips which trumped my order but they are one if his regular customers. I will add more pictures as soon as I get the new ones.
