All of my grips are built to order and can be customized (within reason) for the shooter.
Yes. As long as the customer realizes the wood must be of a suitable size and cured (dry) not green. Also I do occasionally mess up a grip blank and have to start over so do not send me something irreplaceable to build a grip. I will do my best to replace any wood I mess up but I can’t replace an heirloom. (Yes this sounds silly but it is surprising what some people will ask for).
Occasionally but only special requests, there are many 1911 grip makers to fill most any order.
New December 2016 I have a few 1911 grips up for sale while they last.
No not at this time.
I can prep the grip to receive the medallions if you have a set from another grip. New November 2014 medallions can be acquired through http://www.danwessonarms.net/ Order your medallions from DWA and I will prep your grip to receive them. If you want, you can have DWA, ship them directly to me to save the shipping.
No, I accept personal checks or money orders, and of course cash.
Minimum size of 5 ½ inches long 3 inches wide and 1 3/4 thick.
Domestic wood grows in the good ole USA such as Walnut, Maple, Cherry, etc. Exotics are woods that grow outside the USA such as Zebra, Ebony, Rosewoods, etc.

Normal turnaround time is 3 to 4 weeks. Sometimes I get a back log and it may take longer but I will let you know that up front. Occasionally when backlogged I stop taking orders for a while until I catch up. Usually only a month or so.
Most grip styles and standard wood types have prices listed on the website. Custom jobs or high end (expensive) woods will be subjective to the cost of the wood or special work involved. Shoot me an email and we will figure it out. Shipping is almost always $5.00.
I keep a few woods in stock such as Walnut, Zebra, Maple and a few others, but most woods are available from various sources and usually can be gotten in about a week.
