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.

Stabilize?  Since I've no idea what you mean by that, I'd say probably not.  At least not on purpose.

Okay, I looked it up.  Nope, definitely did not add any chemicals other than the coats of Watco Danish Oil (golden oak color) applied with 0000 steel wool.

If you know any knifemakers, you might ask them about throwing your grips in with a batch of scales, to get 'em stabilized.

I'm seriously considering adding the capability, since I can also use the process for turning bowls.

Wait.  What? 

Ruger Match Champion grips for your S&W N Frames?

I think they are fugly.  But they feel and point amazing in my hands.  I have decent grips on one of my N frames, but I have never been super happy with any of them.   Stock regular grips beat the hell out of my middle finger.  Houge rubber grips are just hideous.

My L frame has owner modified grips, not by me, that are similar in shape to the Match Champion's and they are my favorite round gun grips that I own.  I have never seen factory rosewood grips so am not 100% on what they looked like unmodified.  I once looked at some similar custom grips, don't remember who made them, but they were 18 months out on orders and not taking new orders. 

Ruger Match Champion is on the top of the revolver to buy list, so maybe one day I will try to recreate them for the N frame.
