GG672 - Baby Blue Mammoth ivory - 1911 ivory grips

ARTIST: Dan Chinnockgg672

IVORY: Siberia - Russia

PISTOL TYPES: Republic Arms, Colts, Kimbers, Springfields, Ed Brown, Les Baer, Cabot, Dan Wesson, Wilson Combat, STI, etc. and all 1911 clones Note:

MODIFICATIONS: Upon request, can be cut for an ambidextrous safety and/or bob tail (Ed Brown)

COMMENTS:  Mother nature has only revealed one other set like these about 2 years ago.  Just a rare occurrence where iron in the soil has altered the ivory minerals to create blue and then stopped in time before the blue ivory darkened itself further to the colors we often see in traditional "blue" Mammoth.  We all like it, so I promise to keep looking.

If you want to maintain that high gloss, mint condition look, yourself just ask me to include a polishing file for $3.00 (see Polishing file in the main menu to see how it works!)

PRICE: sold

Thanks Glenn!

MODIFICATIONS: Upon request, can be cut for an ambidextrous safety, bob tail (Ed Brown) or Kimber's Super Carry Pro. Thumb groove for better access to magazine release.

COMMENTS:  With their warm golden hues, and soft feel, you will swear that they actually feel warm to the touch.  These will add a glow and "life" to your pistol to the point where it will quickly become one of your favorite pistols to hold and shoot.  And that high polish gives them that almost 3-dimensional look when viewed up close.  Great example of what makes Wooly Mammoth so desirable.  Do not forget to click on the picture to see how they look on one of my pistols.

Also a great choice for a stainless pistol. Truly a very unique set of grips with that warm buttery feel you only get with real ivory.

MODIFICATIONS: Upon request, can be cut for an ambidextrous safety.

COMMENTS: NOTE, THESE ARE OFFICER/COMPACT GRIPS

Highly dramatic grips where some of the original ivory has maintained its bright white natural color.  I only see a pair like these reveal themselves about every 2 years.  This black white effect is rarely seen in Mammoth ivory.  Heal has a soft bevel for increased comfort and hides the MSH bolt to create a clean line that follows the overall look of a 1911.  Don't forget to click on the picture to see how they look on one of my pistols.

These have that ancient look one only sees in Mammoth ivory and the golden flame colors makes a bold statement.

MODIFICATIONS: Upon request, can be cut for an ambidextrous safety. Thumb groove for speed access to magazine release.

COMMENTS: Nice contrast as the grips transition from chocolate to cream colors.  Green ticking throughout gives them great depth of color and truly a one-of-a-kind look.  Ancient and mint looking at the same time is what makes Mammoth ivory so cool to own.  Should work well with any color pistol.  These also have rippled ridges running down the grips giving them more of a tactile feel while maintaining that soft buttery feel everyone loves.  Don't forget to click on the picture to see them on one of my pistols.

MODIFICATIONS: Upon request, can be cut for an ambidextrous safety, bob tail (Ed Brown) or Kimber's Super Carry Pro. Thumb groove for better(speed) access to magazine release.

COMMENTS:  Out of this batch, these are my favorite.  Click on the picture to see how they totally change the look of my Ed Brown Special Forces pistol.  Over the thousands of years, most of the ivory stayed snow white, but then red and brown phosphates began to change parts of these grips leaving one of the most desired sets of grips I make.  When grips like these are on pistols being displayed at gun shows, they are one of the 1st to sell.

GG668 -  Black Buffalo and White Elephant ivory inlay 1911 grips. gg668

ARTIST: Dan Chinnock

IVORY: N/A

PISTOL TYPES: Republic Arms, Colt, All Kimbers, Springfields, Ed Brown, Les Baer, Dan Wesson, Wilson, STI, etc. and all 1911 clones

MODIFICATIONS: N/A

COMMENTS:  Dramatic, Cool, Wow, Beautiful!.  This the kind of feedback I received when I showed this prototype to some of my customers and gun manufactures.  Designed by me, I do not believe this has been tried before and I am quite proud of the outcome.  Click on the picture to see how they look on my Ed Brown Special Forces pistol and the mirror-matched effect when viewing both panels.

These grips have a G10 tactical frame where Elephant ivory and American buffalo were inlayed in an alternating pattern to create this rare and unique look.

Since this is my design, I can say that this is the first of the final 3 that I will make.  After that there will be no more.

GG667 - Black and Midnight Blue Mammoth ivory 1911 grips

ARTIST: Dan Chinnockgg667

IVORY: Alaska, United States

PISTOL TYPES: Republic Forge, Colts, Kimbers, Springfields, Ed Brown, Les Baer, Cabot, Dan Wesson, Wilson Combat, STI, etc. and all 1911 clones Note: Some Cabot guns require special templates to make grips. They have sent me templates for all of their models.MODIFICATIONS: Upon request, can be cut for an ambidextrous safety, bob tail (Ed Brown) or Kimber's Super Carry Pro. Thumb groove for better access to magazine release.

COMMENTS: It is continuing to be a struggle to find quality Mammoth ivory and to that effort I had some help from the local natives in Alaska for the ivory used in these grips.  Black ivory, with hints of blue, created a very distinctive look in these grips and should work well on any color pistol. Defines the term "Rare Black Mammoth." Very soft in the hand, these grips are setup in the Magwell (square corner) configuration, but can be given the traditional notch around the main spring housing bolt upon request. Remember to click on the picture to see how they look on my Ed Brown Special Forces pistol.

GG664 - White Mammoth Bark Ivory 1911 Grips

ARTIST: Dan Chinnockgg664

IVORY: Siberia - Russia

PISTOL TYPES: Colt, All Kimbers, Springfields, Ed Brown, Cabot, Les Baer, Uselton, Dan Wesson, Wilson, STI, etc. and all 1911 clones

MODIFICATIONS: Upon request, can be cut for an ambidextrous safety, bob tail (Ed Brown) or Kimber's Super Carry Pro. Thumb groove for better access to magazine release

COMMENTS: This highly book matched set of grips have an almost Walrus ivory look about them, but are in fact Wooly Mammoth.  The different shades of white, along with the nerve root shadow up the middle, gives these great depth of color and an almost 3-dimensional look about them when viewed up close.  Rare to get this type of coloration in Mammoth, these will give a black pistol that elegant "tuxedo" look while giving the owner that warm buttery feel you get with real ivory.  Click on the picture to see how they just pop off of my Ed Brown.

PRICE: SOLD on 02/13/2014

Thanks Phil!

GG663 - All shades of Blue Mammoth Bark Ivory 1911 Grips

ARTIST: Dan Chinnockgg663

IVORY: Alaska

PISTOL TYPES: Republic Forge, Colts, Kimbers, Springfields, Ed Brown, Les Baer, Cabot, Dan Wesson, Wilson Combat, STI, etc. and all 1911 clones Note: Some Cabot guns require special templates to make grips. They have sent me templates for all of their models.

MODIFICATIONS: Upon request, can be cut for an ambidextrous safety, bob tail (Ed Brown) or Kimber's Super Carry Pro. Thumb groove for better access to magazine release.

COMMENTS: If "blues" don't do it for you, skip these grips. One of my favorite types of blue, these seem to change color from bright sky blue, to a deep ocean blue, when they are viewed from different angles and under different types of light. These are a nice clean and durable set that will upgrade the look of any 1911 and certainly add value since "blue" of this type is so rare. These have the square corner often desired by magwell owners, but they will fit any full size frame and I can put the traditional mainspring housing bolt notch in if desired. These took a very high polish that will surely grab attention out on the range or in your holster. Don't forget to click on the picture to see how they look on one of my pistols.

Check my new menu item "Ivory File". For $3 dollars, this file will keep that gloss and mint condition look on these grips. I even have a video demo on how to use it. So please check it out and tell me what you think. If you already own some ivory grips, this file will increase the value of that investment. A high gloss set of ivory grips often sells for $50 to $100 more than a flat/dull set of grips.

PRICE: SOLD on 02/13/2014

Thanks Rob!

MODIFICATIONS: Upon request, can be cut for an ambidextrous safety, bob tail (Ed Brown) or Kimber's Super Carry Pro. Thumb groove for better(speed) access to magazine release.

COMMENTS: Nice light patina ivory with touches of bark accents, give these an ancient look, and mint condition new look, all at the same time.  These are also going to be a extremely durable set where I even polished the back sides (why?  because that side looks cool also).  Great contrast will have them just "popping" of any dark pistol.  And while they are totally smooth, their high gloss gives them an almost 3-dimensional look when viewed up close. With their warm buttery there will be no reason to ever take them off your pistol.  Don't forget to click on the picture to see them on my Ed Brown Special Forces.

GG660 -Bronze on Patina White, touches of Green, Mammoth ivory 1911 grips

ARTIST: Dan Chinnockgg660

IVORY: Siberia - Russia

PISTOL TYPES: Republic Forge, Colts, Kimbers, Springfields, Ed Brown, Les Baer, Cabot, Dan Wesson, Wilson Combat, STI, etc. and all 1911 clones Note: Some Cabot guns require special templates to make grips. They have sent me templates for all of their models.

MODIFICATIONS: Upon request, can be cut for an ambidextrous safety, bob tail (Ed Brown) or Kimber's Super Carry Pro. Thumb groove for better access to magazine release.

COMMENTS: These have that ancient look one only sees in Mammoth ivory and the patch pattern of bronze coloration has hints of green everywhere.  Making them a very unique pair of ivory grips.  Has a high gloss that gives great definition to all the patterns and swirls of color while still maintaining the mint condition ancient look about them.   Unique as a thumbprint, no one will ever have a pair like these. These types of grips are starting to become extremely rare since very little ivory has been making it out of Russia for almost 2 years and thus will hold their value extremely well (likely increase in a few more years.)

If you want to maintain that high gloss, mint condition look, yourself just ask me to include a polishing file for $3.00 (see Polishing file in the main menu to see how it works!)

Will be an extremely durable set of grips..

MODIFICATIONS: Upon request, can be cut for an ambidextrous safety, Thumb groove for better(speed) access to magazine release. Traditional notch for MSH pin and bevel on heals.

COMMENTS: Remember, these are for a Compact 1911.  It is a rare occurrence where the bark/fossil lines sit on a backdrop of white ivory (more white than Elephant ivory) and as such these will dramatically change the look of your Compact 1911.  For better illustration, click on the picture to see how they look on my Kimber Ultra.  These were tested to make sure that they have a soft feel in the hand with no sharp edges.  Just that warm buttery feel you only get with real ivory.  I did check the mag release and a thumb groove would improve access.  Just let me know and I will put one in prior to shipment.  Excellent candidate for an  every day carry compact 1911 pistol.

MODIFICATIONS: Upon request, can be cut for an ambidextrous safety, bob tail (Ed Brown) or Kimber's Super Carry Pro. Thumb groove for better access to magazine release.

COMMENTS:  During the build, these started to have that warm buttery feel, and sun gold look, that I switched to working them totally by hand.  Four months later they look as great as I hoped.  Nice soft feel, highly book matched, totally smooth, high polish, and equal amounts of bark lines running from head to toe on each grip.  These define why Mammoth ivory can be so rare, unique and beautiful.  Great investment grade set of 1911 grips that will warm up any color pistol.  Click on the picture to see how they look on one of my pistols.  I just love these.

MODIFICATIONS: N/A

COMMENTS:  Last years builds of 12 sold out quickly.  This year I plan on building 1 for each month.  This set is marked as 1 of 12 2014 and signed by me.  "Dramatic, Cool, Wow, Beautiful!."  This is the kind of feedback I received last year when the first 12 were sold.  Designed by me, I do not believe this has been tried before and I am quite proud of the outcome.  Click on the picture to see how they look on my Ed Brown Special Forces pistol and the mirror-matched effect when viewing both panels.

These grips have a G10 tactical frame where Elephant ivory and American buffalo were inlayed in an alternating pattern to create this rare and unique look yet be very durable and service friendly. 

There is just nothing like it out there and you can be 1 of only 12 people to have it this year.  I hope you like them as much as I do. True eye candy for the 1911 forum.

GG651 - Radical Black Bark on heavy patina Mammoth Ivory 1911 gripsgg651

ARTIST: Dan Chinnock

IVORY: Siberia - Russia

PISTOL TYPES: Republic Forge, Colt, All Kimbers, Springfields, Ed Brown, Les Baer, Dan Wesson, Wilson, etc. and all 1911 clones
MODIFICATIONS: Upon request, can be cut for an ambidextrous safety. MSH pin notch and bevel on heal of each grip.

COMMENTS:  These book matched grips have a radical black meteor strike pattern due to being found in the coal mines of Siberia when that part of the globe was tropical.  Their grain structure, and growth rings, will make these one of the most durable sets (short of a synthetic) of grips you can own.  I even polished the backs to show off its totally clean and blemish free back side.  No pictures of the backs.  You will just have to be surprised when they arrive at your door.  Really soft in the hand for that wild west shooter potential.  I wish I could better describe just how great they feel when they are on my Ed Brown.  Just a very unique set that no one else will have.  Don't forget to click on the picture to see how they look on my Ed Brown Special Forces.

PISTOL TYPES: Republic Forge, Colts, Kimbers, Springfields, Ed Brown, Les Baer, Cabot, Dan Wesson, Wilson Combat, STI, etc. and all 1911 clones Note: Some Cabot guns require special templates to make grips. They have sent me templates for all of their models.

MODIFICATIONS: Upon request, can be cut for an ambidextrous safety. Thumb groove for speed access to magazine release.

COMMENTS: Remember, these are Compact/Officer sized grips.  A highly book matched set where the grain and color patterns flow exactly in the same direction.  Click on the picture and you will also see in the main spring housing pin area that both panels jump to a bright white color.  I have pictured the heals to reveal the wide open grain and how they were centered off how the tusk grew.  No blemishes, clean grain, and transitioning patina color make these an extremely good investment.  I did a carry melt on these also to make them a good candidate for an every day carry (very soft and warm in the hand).  These took a very high gloss during the polish process and so please click on the picture to get a better view of their true colors as seen on one of my pistols. I hope these find a good home, it was fun to work these slowly by hand to pull out the colors and "flow" of the ivory.

ARTIST: Dan Chinnock

Mammoth: Siberia - Russia

PISTOL TYPES: Republic Forge, Colts, Kimbers, Springfields, Ed Brown, Les Baer, Cabot, Dan Wesson, Wilson Combat, STI, etc. and all 1911 clones Note: Some Cabot guns require special templates to make grips. They have sent me templates for all of their models.

MODIFICATIONS: Setup is in place for an ambidextrous safety.

COMMENTS: These are in the most natural and pristine condition when the Mammoth expired.  Nice warm creams with gray and black veining offers a very ancient and 3-dimensional look.  They are inlayed into black G10 material that creates nice picture framing and will make them "pop" off of any black, blue, or two tone pistol.  Don't forget to click on the picture to see how they look on my Ed Brown Special Forces.  Totally smooth with a high gloss gives them that crisp clean look of color clarity.

Wooly Mammoths had larger molars to help digest about 200 pounds of vegetation each day. The dark areas were softer and the light areas were harder. This created an uneven surface as they wore down and much like a cheese grater they made the molars more efficient. They fell out and were replaced with new teeth about every three years. Mammoth tooth grips have been made before, but I avoided them due to their hard brittle tendencies. This has now been resolved by inlaying the Mammoth tooth into tactical G10 material. They are now light weight, durable, and beautiful. Even more, these grips will over a few years begin to wear to your unique hand print. It will take a while, but it is cool to think about how your grips will form to your unique hand shape.

Thank you again Kingsley.

MODIFICATIONS: Upon request, can be cut for an ambidextrous safety, bob tail (Ed Brown)

COMMENTS:  Highly book matched, these have a truly 3-dimensional look that can only be seen first hand.  Very solid set that should work well on stainless, blue, black or two-tone pistols.  Great contrast will add a elegant "pop" to your pistol.  Remember to click on the above picture and you will see how they look on one of my pistols.  The blue Titanium screws will help draw out the colors and give your pistol that custom look that is usually only seen on a high end pistol.   Titanium screws also do not come loose like ordinary screws, giving you that added security of these grips never coming loose at the range or in competition.  Just add $25 for a set of 4 blue Titanium screws

If you want to maintain that high gloss, mint condition look, yourself just ask me to include a polishing file for $3.00 (see Polishing file in the main menu to see how it works!) Fine for every day carry or out at the range.

GG639 - Black on White Mammoth ivory - 1911 ivory grips

ARTIST: Dan Chinnockgg639

IVORY: Siberia - Russia

PISTOL TYPES: Republic Forge, Colt, All Cabot, Kimbers, Springfields, Ed Brown, Les Baer, Uselton, Dan Wesson, Wilson, etc. and all 1911 clones

MODIFICATIONS: Upon request, can be cut for an ambidextrous safety and/or bob tail (Ed Brown).  Can also be given the traditional notch and bevel around the main spring housing bolt.

COMMENTS:  These salt and pepper type ivory grips are heavily sought after by some lovers of Mammoth ivory due to their rare occurrence where white ivory remains intact, but mother nature has gotten into the ivory and turned some areas black.  These came out of the coal mines of Siberia allowing this effect to be achieved.  Click on the picture to see them on my Ed Brown pistol and how they match and contrast all at the same time.  The ultimate "pop" on any black pistol, these draw attention fast. Truly a very unique set of grips with that warm buttery feel you only get with real ivory.

Check my new menu item "Ivory File". For $3 dollars, this file will keep that gloss and mint condition look on these grips. I even have a video demo on how to use it. So please check it out and tell me what you think. If you already own some ivory grips, this file will increase the value of that investment. A high gloss set of ivory grips often sells for $50 to $100 more than a flat/dull set of grips.

Fine for every day carry or out at the range. Perfect for a everyday carry pistol or upgrading one of your pistols to the ultimate of rare ivory's.

PRICE: sold

Nice balance of colors and tones makes these a well matched set. Another beautiful example of what mother nature can do if given the time (in this case 10,000+ years). They have an almost 3-dimensional look when viewed 1st hand that will have you staring at them for hours. Truly a very unique set of grips with that warm buttery feel you only get with real ivory.

All edges and corners were de-horned to make them a soft feel in the hand when shooting. These also have that warm buttery feel you only get with real ivory. If you want to maintain that high gloss, mint condition look, yourself just ask me to include a polishing file for $3.00 (see Polishing file in the main menu to see how it works!)

No international shipping on Elephant ivory grips, no exceptions.

GG554 - Patina, Caramel, and blue grey Mammoth Tooth ivory 1911 Grips

ARTIST: Dan Chinnock

IVORY: Siberia - Russia

PISTOL TYPES: Republic Forge, Colts, Kimbers, Springfields, Ed Brown, Les Baer, Cabot, Dan Wesson, Wilson Combat, STI, etc. and all 1911 clones Note: Some Cabot guns require special templates to make grips. They have sent me templates for all of their models.

MODIFICATIONS: Setup is in place for an ambidextrous safety.

COMMENTS: Beyond book matched, these mirror matched grips have high visual acuity that gives great depth of color and a truly mint look. Wooly Mammoths had larger molars to help digest about 200 pounds of vegetation each day. The dark areas were softer and the light areas were harder. This created an uneven surface as they wore down and much like a cheese grater they made the molars more efficient. They fell out and were replaced with new teeth about every three years. Mammoth tooth grips have been made before, but I avoided them due to their hard brittle tendencies. This has now been resolved by inlaying the Mammoth tooth into Aluminum grips. They are now light weight, durable, and beautiful. Even more, these grips will over a few years begin to wear to your unique hand print. It will take a while, but it is cool to think about how your grips will form to your unique hand shape.

It goes without saying that these grips will "pop" and "scream" off any black, blue, or stainless 1911 pistol. Clicking on the above picture will even show how they look on my Ed Brown Special Forces and Kimber Stainless II. If you want to maintain that high gloss, mint condition look, yourself just ask me to include a polishing file for $3.00 (see Polishing file in the main menu to see how it works!)

Fine for every day carry or out at the range, these meet/exceed all specifications set by 1911 pistol manufactures.

PRICE: SOLD!

Thanks Lazaro, she is a special set...

CP047 - Officers/Compact Ancient Mammoth Bark Ivory 1911 grips

ARTIST: Dan Chinnock

IVORY: Siberia - Russia

PISTOL TYPES: Colt, All Kimbers, Springfields, Ed Brown, Les Baer, Dan Wesson, Wilson, etc. and all 1911 clones
Upon request, can be cut for a ambidextrous safety, extended slide release, and/or bob tail (Ed Brown)

MODIFICATIONS: Upon request, can be cut for an ambidextrous safety, bob tail (Ed Brown) or Kimber's Super Carry Pro. Thumb groove for better(speed) access to magazine release.

COMMENTS: Remember these are Compact/Officer sized grips.

Whether they are called "Black Lightening" or "Black Bark", they are a pair of grips that get noticed. Great example of how something so ancient looking can also be in pristine condition and despite this appearance, these are totally smooth and have that warm buttery feel you get with real ivory. Rare to have such a high contrast of white and black ivory appearing on the same grips. Should frame out well on any pistol, but naturally will have the greatest impact on a black or dark blue pistol. Don't forget to click on the picture to see how they look on my Kimber CDP II.

If you want to maintain that high gloss, mint condition look, yourself just ask me to include a polishing file for $3.00 (see Polishing file in the main menu to see how it works!)

Fine for every day carry or out at the range.

GG526 - Black and Midnight Blue Mammoth ivory 1911 grips

ARTIST: Dan Chinnock

IVORY: Alaska, United States

PISTOL TYPES: Cabot, Colt, Kimber, Springfields, Ed Brown, Les Baer, Dan Wesson, Wilson Combat, Nighthawk, STI, etc. and all 1911 clones

MODIFICATIONS: Upon request, can be cut for an ambidextrous safety, bob tail (Ed Brown) or Kimber's Super Carry Pro. Thumb groove for better access to magazine release.

COMMENTS: It is continuing to be a struggle to find quality Mammoth ivory and to that effort I had some help from the local natives in Alaska for the ivory used in these grips. I saw the opportunity to achieve a highly book matched set of grips if I worked these by hand and the result seems worth the effort. Black ivory, with hints of blue, created a very distinctive look in these grips and should work well on any color pistol. Defines the term "investment grade". Very soft in the hand, these grips are setup in the Magwell (square corner) configuration, but can be given the traditional notch around the main spring housing bolt upon request. Remember to click on the picture to see how they look on my Ed Brown Special Forces pistol.

Check my new menu item "Ivory File". For $3 dollars, this file will keep that gloss and mint condition look on these grips. I even have a video demo on how to use it. So please check it out and tell me what you think. If you already own some ivory grips, this file will increase the value of that investment. A high gloss set of ivory grips often sells for $50 to $100 more than a flat/dull set of grips.

PRICE: SOLD!

GG508 - Marbled Mammoth Tooth ivory 1911 Grips

ARTIST: Dan Chinnock

IVORY: Siberia - Russia

PISTOL TYPES: Jeff Meister Custom, Hero Guns, Colts, Kimbers, Springfields, Ed Brown, Les Baer, Cabot, Dan Wesson, Wilson Combat, STI, etc. and all 1911 clones Note: Some Cabot guns require special templates to make grips. They have sent me templates for all of their models.

MODIFICATIONS: Setup is in place for an ambidextrous safety.

COMMENTS: One of the most stunning pairs of grips I have seen in a long time. This Wooly Mammoth should have gone and seen a dentist long ago, but the result was a beautiful set of grips. Here is an opportunity to own something never before seen. Wooly Mammoths had larger molars to help digest about 200 pounds of vegetation each day. The dark areas were softer and the light areas were harder. This created an uneven surface as they wore down and much like a cheese grater they made the molars more efficient. They fell out and were replaced with new teeth about every three years. Mammoth tooth grips have been made before, but I avoided them due to their hard brittle tendencies. This has now been resolved by inlaying the Mammoth tooth into Aluminum grips. They are now light weight, durable, and beautiful. Even more, these grips will over a few years begin to wear to your unique hand print. It will take a while, but it is cool to think about how your grips will form to your unique hand shape.

About ten(10) sets will be available for viewing and purchase at the January 2013 SHOT show in Las Vegas next month. I had intended to not show or sell any until that time, but I know you guys love looking at new and unique ivory grips. It goes without saying that these grips will "pop" and "scream" off any black, blue, or stainless 1911 pistol. Here is your chance to own one of the first sets ever produced. Enjoy....

Clicking on the above picture will even show how they look on my Ed Brown Special Forces. If you want to maintain that high gloss, mint condition look, yourself just ask me to include a polishing file for $3.00 (see Polishing file in the main menu to see how it works!)

Dam01

The "Traveler" (my name of this model)

Custom Damascus and Blue Mammoth ivory 1911 45cal Pistol

Builder: Jeff Meister - Gun Smith
Dan Chinnock - ivory grips

IVORY: Siberia - Russia

PISTOL TYPES: Custom build from ground up: Damascus pistol with match grade barrel and slide

Sights: Kensite adjustable on back, gold dot on front

Black Cerakote frame, clear Cerakote over Damascus

Custom trigger with 2 - 2 1/2 pound pull

MODIFICATIONS: N/A

COMMENTS: In my business, I am fortunate to work with 1911’s in virtually all price points and this Commander sized pistol is up there with the very best. I had it built to my specifications to be a very comfortable shooter, but the initial driver was my love of Damascus steel.

This custom pistol is extremely comfortable and accurate to shoot and will do 6 shot groupings in 1 inches at 40 yards. Every part was hand-fitted for reliability, performance, and accuracy by Jeff Meister. The Kart National Match barrel is just one example of what Jeff uses to build his quality pistols. Jeff may not be a gun smith you have heard of before, but if quality of work has anything to do with it I expect that to change in the near future. Clicking on the picture will reveal both sides.

Naturally, I had to put the most striking and vibrant blue Mammoth ivory grips on it. Even the bark texture grooves add to the look and feel of these grips. A high end custom pistol needed a high end set of grips.

PRICE: $4,200 SOLD!

Thanks Ray!

GG499 - Bright Sky Blue on bright white Mammoth ivory - 1911 ivory grips

ARTIST: Dan Chinnock

IVORY: Siberia - Russia

PISTOL TYPES: Colt, All Cabot, Kimbers, Springfields, Ed Brown, Les Baer, Uselton, Dan Wesson, Wilson, etc. and all 1911 clones

MODIFICATIONS: Upon request, can be cut for an ambidextrous safety and/or bob tail (Ed Brown)

COMMENTS: Equal amounts of blues, browns, and blacks makes these an exceptional book matched set. Also, it is rare to find ancient Mammoth ivory(10,000 yrs+ old) with its original white ivory intact, these grips have those great blues that seem to have skated across the surface and then mother nature did her thing turning parts of the ivory black and brown. I do not get this opportunity often where the completed grips have such a high contrast between the different colors. These will just "pop" off of any black, blue, or stainless pistol and give it a whole new look.

If you click on the picture you will see how they look on my Ed Brown Special Forces pistol. Will make a strong statement to any pistol. Truly a very unique set of grips with that warm buttery feel you only get with real ivory.

Check my new menu item "Ivory File". For $3 dollars, this file will keep that gloss and mint condition look on these grips. I even have a video demo on how to use it. So please check it out and tell me what you think. If you already own some ivory grips, this file will increase the value of that investment. A high gloss set of ivory grips often sells for $50 to $100 more than a flat/dull set of grips.

Fine for every day carry or out at the range. Perfect for a everyday carry pistol or upgrading one of your pistols to the ultimate of rare ivory's.

COMMENTS: If you don't like blue Mammoth stop right here. Wonderful ocean blue, Hawaiian blue, and baby blues are found throughout these visually striking set of ivory grips.

(No international shipping, no exceptions)

ARTIST: Dan Chinnock

IVORY: pre-ban

PISTOL TYPES: Colt, All Kimbers, Springfields, Ed Brown, Les Baer, Dan Wesson, etc. and all 1911 clones

MODIFICATIONS: Upon request, can be cut for an ambidextrous safety and/or bob tail (Ed Brown)

COMMENTS: These bright white Elephant ivory grips are a great representation of what Elephant ivory has to offer. Every aspect of each panel is perfectly matched to the other panel. The grain, color tones, and heal all match between the two panels. They will not only offer a great contrast, and framing, to any black or blue gun, but they will also make a great investment. Elephant ivory is getting more scarce all the time, and as such, these grips will only increase in value over time. These have the traditional beveled heal that acts like another facet to an already perfect diamond. All edges and corners were de-horned to make them a soft feel in the hand when shooting. These also have that warm buttery feel you only get with real ivory. Click on the picture to see a larger view and how they look on my Kimber Ultra CDP II.

Meets or exceeds all of Kimbers and Colts custom shops specifications. Perfect for a everyday carry pistol or that special pistol in your collection just screaming for ivory to complete its look.

GG368 - White Mammoth Bark Ivory 1911 Grips

ARTIST: Dan Chinnock

IVORY: Siberia - Russia

PISTOL TYPES: Colt, All Kimbers, Springfields, Ed Brown, Cabot, Les Baer, Uselton, Dan Wesson, Wilson, STI, etc. and all 1911 clones

MODIFICATIONS: Upon request, can be cut for an ambidextrous safety, bob tail (Ed Brown) or Kimber's Super Carry Pro. Thumb groove for better access to magazine release

COMMENTS: This highly book matched set of grips are a classic example of why the word "bark" is often used in describing Mammoth ivory. This set has beautiful white ivory with dark brown bark lines running from head to toe on each panel. These bark lines run barely below the surface and so while they have a crackle appearance, the surface is totally smooth and the grips will be very durable with no chance of cracking or breaking. This kind of ivory really gets noticed at the range or in your holster so be prepared. The panels took a very high gloss you come to expect and the bark adds great depth of color and validity to being true Mammoth Ivory that is over 10,000 years old. They will work great on any color pistol with the best "pop" being on black and blue pistols.

Check my new menu item "Ivory File". For $3 dollars, this file will keep that gloss and mint condition look on these grips. I even have a video demo on how to use it. So please check it out and tell me what you think. If you already own some ivory grips, this file will increase the value of that investment. A high gloss set of ivory grips often sells for $50 to $100 more than a flat/dull set of grips.

Fine for every day carry or out at the range. Don't forget to click on the picture to see a larger view of them on my Kimber.

Meets or exceeds all of Kimbers and Colts custom shops specifications. Perfect for a everyday carry pistol or upgrading one of your pistols.
