as in grip panels... they are a lot of fun you will need lot o sand paper.. a nice rasp helps along witha router if you need to do any relelaving to fit a frame...you can do alot with a dremel tool. great for shaping.. good luck post up some pictures when you get going on your project 8)

Here's a couple of revolver grip panels I made, the center one is two parts that enclose the frame, did that inletting with a rotozip, could'nt find a pic of the inside but that grip fits a Taurus Tracker. The biggest problem I had in making pistol grips was in finding a good supply of grip panel ferrels, if you find a supplier please let us know. As 6x5 said, post pic of your progress, and feel free to ask us any questions you may have.

Brownells and I think Midway have them . I have not ordered them yet but have been looking to find all the parts. There is a local place for wood of all knids , will try the less expensive stuff first . One goal is to duplicate some grips I have in walnut in ebony . They fit a J frame S&W and are very compact .

Found the grip panel ferrels on Brownells, both sides, and the screws, but no photo, but it come to $12 a set, Prety spendy when you're trying to makes 'em for sale. Nothing but a ton of grip panels on Midway.
I would suggest that for your first pair, that you try working with a less expencive wood, heck even some fir or pine would work well enough for you to get a feel of how to work on them, as with most thing it takes practice, and I'd much rather make a mistake on some throwaway pieces than on something like Ebony. My above photo was my 3rd set, I've got two bad sets in the scrap box, of both types.

I drilled and routered, rasped till my fingers hurt,.sanding away hours and lost track of time now Iam all done. all i have to do is ship it off to its new home...thats realy the hardest part...lol I was getting used to mounting up a left handed stock.

The time has come for me to make one to Keep. I have aquired some new handi parts so i will be putting a .243 together along with .280 that 4x5 picked up in his stock trade... I will make a myrtle stock(a very beautiful wood) while Dad has plans to do a redwood.stock matching his 25-06, he made a few years ago.

I'm almost done with LONGTOM's new stock ( My Trader in the 'Want to Trade' forum ) after Frank told me that he intends to bolt my trader up to his Custom .405 Winchester, I offered to add a bit more Myrtle to handle the big .40 cal thumping 30 + lbs of recoil, made it 1/16 proud of the reciever, and chased the fit until I came up a 1/4" short of the original LOP ( now 14" ) and got a 99% fit, and after a few shots the .405's recoil will set the fit.




This cold weather is slowing down the curing process, a few more coats of Tru-Oil and I'll be sending this ole pal off to VA and its new home. I've also done qiute a bit on Purpledragon's all redwood stockset, a few sanding sessions and it will also be ready to ship.




When I get both of those projects done, I'll get to work on a stock for my soon to be new .280 Rem, And as 6x5 mentioned I'll be making it with our last remaining Redwood stock blank ( we'll be taking a trip down into Calif for more Redwood Burl soon ) to match my other long barrel, my .25-06 Rem.
