As C says, as long as you've finished the grips inside and out with a good penetrating oil, you should be fine.

Lots of coats.

There's a considerable number of historic handguns that came equipped with oiled wooden grips from the factory and wore them for years without any significant problems.  Sometimes they were stained and varnished.  I guess the point is if the grips are well made, well fitted to the gun and properly secured they are likely to last quite a while.  Hard use and abuse will take its toll over time but I've seen guns treated like that where the metal parts were in worse shape than the wooden ones.   :shrug   Enjoy you handiwork and decide later if stabilization is something you're interested in doing.   :coffee

You do realize that you're scaring me now, don't you?   :'(


Yup. That's why he should do it now - he's got them shaped how he wants them.  Anything after now can be done with sandpaper for fine tuning (and I would really hate for those beautiful maple grips to warp!)

I know it ups the toughness game considerably.  Try caving a set of grips from stabilized blanks sometime to get the general idea.    :cool

Yeah, it's pretty easy, but there some additional hardware requirements, with the vacuum pump and chamber.

Not worth doing for a one shot, but if you're planning on doing a lot, then...

I have only done the epoxy route for stabilizing some wood pieces. A heat cured resin doesn't seem much more difficult to do beyond needing an oven.
