    Wood grips.

    I have bought wood grips from this guy a few years ago for a Taurus 445 and loved them. I let them go with that gun when I sold it because they wouldn't fit my my model 66. I kept his name on my eBay account and he is back with more grips. The previous one I purchased from him were great quality and good fit but the checkering was a tad bit sharp. A fine grain sandpaper corrected that. I will be getting a set now for my model 66.

    With all this "Gun Control" talk I haven't heard one politician say how they plan to take guns from criminals, just law abiding citizens.

    I only have one gun with wood (DWA .357). I've been looking to get a Taurus .25 and .22 and had planned on the poly version, but I'm thinking maybe I'll get the all metal version instead. I figured I would try to make my own wooden grips for it. It can't be too hard, can it?

    Changing a transmission in a BMW isn't too hard if you know what you're doing..... Personally it's a skill set i don't possess. Not saying i wouldn't be willing to try, just never done it before

    Both of these sets of grips were made/ordered from Jaruwan. Redhawk and Taurus model 970. The pics speak for themselves:

    Nice looking grips and I've heard nothing but good things, other than waiting, about the Thai gripmaker. My question is how many of them are relieved for Speedloaders?

    ^^^Thanks for the compliment, 57K. Regarding speedloader reliefs, I haven't searched Jaruwan's entire inventory, but he does have photos for each of his offered grips. The photos should give an indication.

    My GP100 came with OEM rubber Hogues. I'm waiting for the arrival of rubber Pachmayr Diamond Pro grips, and that will do me for rubber. I'm in no hurry but have already started looking at wood grips, so I've seen the Jaruwan's, and good on ebay for supplying pics. Prices are exceptional. Can't remember if it was Amazon or ebay, but I've seen some nice ones also made in the USA made by a disabled Vet or hires them. Please feel free to correct me if you know whom I'm talking about. definitely competitive with Hogue, and if there's a disabled Vet element to them, that will carry some weight for me.

    Jaruwan.p wood grips has recieved nothing but positive reviews on this forum. I have 2 of them. It does take patience since shipping does take a while from Thailand. Jaruwan does take a number of days off for the local holidays, but he always comes through with his grips.

    I've bought two sets of grips from him. For my model 85 ul and my 65. Beautiful and fit perfectly with zero dremel modifications.

    I have Jaruwan's wood grips on my 4 Taurus revolvers. Really pleased with the workmanship and fit on all of them. He does fine work.
