REAL JOHN WAYNE IVORY GRIPS

We have a 16 pound 4 ounce piece of tusk hollow (with 3 bullet holes) that once belonged to John Wayne the actor. He gave it to Frank Beetson Jr. the costume designer that worked with him on the classic African movie Hatari (1962) and 5 other earlier J.W. movies. Frank Beetson Jr. gave it to my friend Richard Bruno also a costume designer (Richard won the British academy award for best costumes for "Goodfellows") who gave it to me 25 years ago. With the ban looming early next year we feel it is time to turn this ivory into keepsake 1911 grips. If you want to get on the list to be contacted when we put all the details and the photos of the ivory piece and the subsequent grips on the website please email or call. There will on only be about 20 pairs, they will be numbered. We do not know if this was from an elephant shot by John Wayne, only that he once owned this piece of ivory, this is a once in a life time opportunity if you like ivory grips and John Wayne - Inquire!

FULL SIZE "SLIMLINE" MODEL GRIPS

Slimline grips are thinner than a standard 1911, and go on a 1911 that has the slimline (low profile) grip bushings. They will not work on a standard 1911 unless you replace your standard bushings with slimline bushings. This can easily be done with a slotted screw driver unless you have a Les Baer, their bushings are glued in and the gun must be sent in to swap bushings. Slimline bushings can be swapped out for standard if you desire a thicker grip and have slimline grips now. Our fancy screws need to be shortened if you are ordering them for slim line grips, make sure you tell us, there is a $5.00 machineing fee.

MOST OF THE FULL SIZE GRIPS ABOVE CAN BE TURNED INTO A SLIMLINE GRIP,
with the exception of the bark grips - INQUIRE!
