Those Grips are DONE!

Finished up a small batch of BMG X2 WilkinsGRIPs today. I have smooth orange G10 and both Medium & Coarse Textured Black G10 ready. I hope to have them up for sale tomorrow, as soon as I can get the pics done...maybe I'll get that done today.

Doing these grips is a lot more than simply CNC machining the parts. They also have to all be cut apart by hand, deburred, checked over, washed in the ultrasonic cleaner (see the pics!), dried, oiled the threaded inserts press into place, the screws individually shortened ... anyway. I I calculate exactly how many hours go into each pair ... well, better not to even go there!!
