Grips are Rob’s which i have duplicated, the foregrips are from scratch.
this is one of the duplicated grips black one is Robs and the natural Walnut one is mine.
Something i’ll improve on and turn into a one piecer this winter. This one is available if any would be interested. Core wood is birch.
A cocobolo one i’m working on now. Older pic grip is near done and will start foregrip soon, something a little different should be an eye catcher.

I’ve already seen yours 😆 😆 I was just downstairs sanding the front of the foregrip to bring it down to the size of the grip, maybe later tonite 🙄 😈 Gotta get the little BODHI from daycare, give me a few hours and i’ll post a few, but its not done dam it.November 28, 2007 at 2:46 pm #28253quote Bodhisdad:
god dam so u have lol well it was worth a try wasn,t it 😛December 2, 2007 at 5:37 pm #28487
AAhhhh Rabbits, hope i didn’t make you feel used 😆 , heres the promised pics let me know what you think.
Grip pics first, i waxed the front a little where the finger rest. The rest needs some final sanding 320g and up. Even with out a finish the grain is clearly present, more so in the pics then in my hand.
That is it for the grip, now the foregrip, different, recessed grip, floated front, the rear(trigger area) is still unfinished, still decideing on how to finish it and have it blend with the rest. I’m pretty sure i know what i’m going to do. I take my time as one mistake and many hours are shot in the arse. The wood isn’t cheap either. Let me know what you think of it, not sure i’ve ever seen one like it. Its parts of different foregrips i’ve done and ones i’ve seen others do and put it all in one. Not the best pics either??? She ain’t done and camera shy i think.
Here is the set on the gun 1000watt light used so things are a bit washed out, but you get the idea, and the color of the coco is seen in the individual pics. Obviously some work is still to be done, mainly where the trigger area is concerned. Need to chamfer the recessed area to match the grip’s thumbrest. Also will reduce the trigger guard area to match the lip of the grip a bit more.
Well, let me know what you all think, i know the grip is a winner, the foregrip??? I think it looks dam good but, may not be for everyone. Much time and thought has gone into it. Tough to put all the favorite parts of a design into one foregrip.December 2, 2007 at 5:58 pm #28489
Heres a walnut grip i did when i had Robs set. Still needs a final sanding and oil coat. Nice grain in this one. Had it awhile just haven’t took any pics till yesterday. Nice little grip, need to design a simple, smaller foregrip for it.

Notice how much darker the wood is in the individual pics? Still one side of the foregrip has more oil in it than the other. The grip is very even in color. You’ve beat me to a few before i could get them out as well.December 3, 2007 at 1:23 am #28525quote Bodhisdad:

What size do you need? Thats what over $200US? Wouldn’t cost that much to ship it, $50 i’d guess. What grade are you after? I can get select and better. Its up to you, i found a good mill to get my wood from. Have you checked e-bay? careful because some of the really nice stuff (figured,burled) is green and should be air dried. Its cheap but takes a couple of years to dry.
