Bighorn on a Redhawk. Custom Redhawk grips are a favorite of mine
to make.



Exhibition Bastogne on a Blackhawk.



A fabulous Freedom Arms 97 with exhibition Turkish walnut. This FA
has the finest factory finish to the metal that I have seen. It has all the
bells and whistles. Chambered in 22LR and 22WMR - I'll take one, and
the line forms to the right.




Musk Ox fitted to a Redhawk



Dall sheep horn on a Ruger Blackhawk.



A Les Baer 1911 with stocks of Dall sheep horn.




The 2 photos above are of the same Ruger Blackhawk Bisley. The top
photo is Bighorn sheep horn. The one below it is black Micarta. The
owner tends to hunt in rough places where the weather can be very
unpredictable. While horn is a very durable and tough material, the
thought was that it would make sense to have a stainless revolver
that can wear Micarta stocks when desired to take the brunt of the wear.



Another view of the Bighorn grips on the above Ruger Bisley.


This is a Phillips & Rodgers "Medusa" with Dall sheep horn in a wrap
around style with finger grooves and a palm swell.

A USFA with exhibition Bastogne walnut one piece stock



Beautiful French walnut on a Ruger Blackhawk.



Redhawk wearing Dall Sheep. No gloss to this set of grips. This Redhawk,
which is no safe queen has been used by it's well known owner to down
numerous game animals. The request was for no gloss, since it is a
serious working gun in 500 magnum. 



Close up of the Redhawk above before the gloss was cut.

S&W 66 with factory A engraving. The stock is AAA French with 22 LPI
checkering in a fleur pattern. With an egraved gun, it is important to
not cover any of the engraving with the stock. The line of this grip
follows exactly the line set by the engraver.

The desire here was for a stock that would make pulling the trigger on
a .458 Belted Maximum less disturbing.


A Colt Python with beautiful Stone Sheep horn.

stock is Dall Sheep horn.
