1911 Ivory Grips for: Republic Forge, Colt, Kimbers, Springfields, Cabot, Ed Brown, Les Baer, Dan Wesson, Night Hawk, Wilson, Republic Arms, STI, etc. and all 1911 clones

Welcome my newest partner Republic Forge.  Click here to arrive at their home page and see some of my grips on their pistols. 

If you would like to learn a little more about me and my partnership with Cabot guns, click here to be transported to my bio on their web site:  Cabotguns.com

September 1st 2015:  Over the past year, Editors and customers are making me aware that my grips are appearing in various magazines and other media.  To maintain their value in the secondary market, moving forward I will sign the back of one or both panels.  March 2015 issue of Guns&Ammo page 33, Titled: "GALCO YAQUI SLIDE", May 2015  issue of Guns&Ammo HANDGUNS page 64, Titled: "REPUBLIC FORGE PATRIOT".  December 2015 issue of COMBAT HANDGUNS December 2015:  Page 75 almost a full half page!  Winter issue of GUN DIGEST 2015 pg 18.

March 2016 issue of GUN SHOW - THE BEST OF COMBAT HANDGUNS pg 48-49    "All American Dream Iron" by Republic Forge. 

June 2016 issue of SHOOTING TIMES pg 46-47.  Ranks Republic Forge as one of the new custom 1911 Super Stars.  My ivory can be seen on page 47.  Thank you for the suggestions on where I can be "seen", Dan

December 1st 2015:  At this point I would like to also mention that I carry no inventory.  Grips completed go up on my web site or shipped off to manufactures such as Republic Forge.  I also rarely take custom orders.  Using  past history, 75% of the time the customer is not satisfied with what I make them and that leaves both parties feeling disappointed and that our time was wasted.

HOW IT WORKS:  On the day and time of listing, please click on the email address:   Dansivorygrips@yahoo.com or send an email to this address.  Then within the body of the email tell me the grip number (i.e. GG895, etc), your name, telephone number, and whether the grips will need to be cut for an ambidextrous safety.  Emails will be checked to see who was 1st in requesting a specific set of grips.  Thank You, Dan

Six(6) pair of grips were listed on April 20th 2016 at 2:15pm.  GG914, GG915, GG917, GG918, GG919, and GG920.  Thanks for the continued interest,  Dan

I am currently preparing for the NRA show in Louisville Kentucky On May 13th and 14th.  I am doing a special project for Nighthawk Custom, but will post a small batch (2-3) grips next Tuesday May 10th 2016.  Then it is on(prepare) for the Atlanta Blade Show in early June.  Thanks for your patience and following.  I have some great grips in the works.  Just wish I could clone myself.  Thanks everyone, Dan

GG914 - Checkered Elephant Ivory 1911 grips (Checkered ivory in Magwell)

ARTIST: Dan Chinnockgg775

IVORY: U.S.

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: Ambidextrous safety, MSH pin notch, heal bevel.

COMMENTS: Something old something new.  Checkered ivory goes back to the beginning of the 1911, but a Magwell configuration on a 1911 is relatively new.  So finally I can bring you something old to something new!  Fully checkered ivory grips in a Magwell configuration.   Of course if you would like them just beveled, or beveled and notched, I can do that prior to shipping.  Don't forget to click on the picture to see them on one of my pistols.  Very sophisticated look, very dressy.  Oh, the double diamonds will have a high gloss to give a nice contrast to the checkering.  Each and every "checker" is a perfect diamond.  Just another sexy way to dress out your safe Queen or your every day carry.  Keep in mind, my suppliers of pre-ban documented ivory, are telling me they are running out.  First time I have heard that in the 7 years I have been making grips.  They are raising prices accordingly.

No international shipment of Elephant ivory, no exceptions U.S. only, no shipping to New York City or New Jersey, no California starting in June 2016

PRICE: sold!

Thanks Gary!

GG918 touch of bark Mammoth Ivory 1911 grips

gg918ARTIST: 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: 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. Or the traditional bevel and cutout for Main Spring Housing pin.

COMMENTS: Nice marbled patina ivory give these an ancient look, and a mint condition new look, all at the same time.  These are also going to be a extremely durable set.  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.

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!

GG916 - Blue Green Mammoth ivory - 1911 ivory grips

ARTIST: Dan Chinnockgg916

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:  These grips have an unusual color where they are not quite blue and not quite green and even change depending on whether you are inside or viewing under natural sunlight.  Just a cool looking pair of grips.  Also worth noting is Mother Nature just altered the ivory only on the surface and so the remaining ivory is clean off white.  Wilson Combat would call them "Bullet Proof".  For me, I will just say they will last several life times under heavy use.  If you click on the picture you will 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.

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 Dale!

GG917 - Deep Ocean Blue Mammoth Ivory 1911 Grips

ARTIST: Dan Chinnockgg917

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.

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. Classic example of Alaskan ivory, these are a deep ocean blue very similar to a pistol that has been given to Turnbull for bluing. Shades also match up to denim blue jeans (so you don't have to get all dressed up to head for the shooting range.  Just put on your favorite pair of blue jeans and you will be color coordinated!  Don't forget to click on the picture to see how they look on one of my  pistols.

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!) A high gloss set of ivory grips often sells for $50 to $100 more than a flat/dull set of grips.

GG911 - Black Marbled Mammoth Tooth ivory 1911 Gripsgg911

ARTIST: Dan Chinnock

Mammoth found in: 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.

MODIFICATIONS: Setup is in place for an ambidextrous safety.

COMMENTS:  Flawless set of Black and grey veined Mammoth Tooth, contrasted and balanced by light tans, creates a striking set of grips.  Just a natural for a barbeque gun.  Remember to click on the picture to see how they look on my Ed Brown Special Forces.  The silver bezel further enhances the dramatic effect on black pistols.  While perfectly smooth, the rich patterns give it a one-of-a-kind look that can only be achieved by Mother Nature and the ancient Wooly Mammoths. 

Don't forget to click on the picture to see a larger view on how they look on my Ed Brown Special Forces. 

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.

PRICE: sold!

Thanks Monte

GG907 - Intense blue flame Mammoth Bark Ivory 1911 Grips

ARTIST: Dan Chinnockgg907

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.

COMMENTS: Reminds me of the blue flames use see on a old gas stove.  Dark blues over baby blues, give these life and have a dramatic effect on any color pistol.  These grips will be very durable and will seem to change colors if viewing in indoor lighting or outside under the Sun.  They also have a slight ripple on the blue areas.  With these, I needed to manually pull and pluck off the hard brown mineral deposits to expose the blue. Then gave them a "carry melt" treatment to ensure a soft feel in the hands.  Don't forget to click on the picture to see how they look on one of my pistols.

A nice clean and durable set that will upgrade any 1911 and certainly adding value since "blue" is becoming 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 so remember to click on the picture to see a larger image.

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!) A high gloss set of ivory grips often sells for $50 to $100 more than a flat/dull set of grips.

PRICE: sold!

MODIFICATIONS: Upon request, can be cut for an ambidextrous safety, bob tail (Ed Brown) or Kimber's Super Carry Pro.

COMMENTS: To pick up the greens, be sure to click on the picture to see them on one of my pistols.  A highly book matched set that has subtle greens under the brown bark lines. They have an almost 3-dimensional look when viewed up close that only can be achieved by Mother Nature, copper in the soil, and a few thousand years to alter the surface of the ivory.  These will work well on any color pistol. Adding a almost sophisticated look.  Just a classy looking pair of ivory grips with 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!) A high gloss set of ivory grips often sells for $50 to $100 more than a flat/dull set of grips.

GG908 - Intense Solar Flare Mammoth Tooth ivory 1911 Gripsgg908

ARTIST: Dan Chinnock

IVORY: Mammoth Tooth from Siberia

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:  Has the header suggests, I think the colors are what we see in pictures of our Sun when solar flares occur.   The white veining is the hardest part of the tooth which created a jagged and uneven tooth surface for more efficient eating.  The black G10 bezel makes an even more dramatic effect and protects the teeth from chipping.  Don't forget to click on the picture to see how they look on my Ed Brown Special Forces. 

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 or Aluminum. 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.

ARTIST: Dan Chinnockgg909

IVORY: Siberia - Russia

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

MODIFICATIONS: Upon request, can be cut for an ambidextrous safety, heal beveled, cut for Main Spring Housing Pin

COMMENTS: Very bold copper/bronze contrast that will bring life to any dark pistol.  Click on the picture to see them on my Ed Brown Special Forces while I was at the range.  These are totally smooth and felt great, but must have been a little thinner than I am used to since I was consistently pulling shots off to the right at 25 yrds.  Nice mint condition look on a 10,000 year old piece of ivory.  Mother nature does some cool things if given the time.

Click on the picture to see them on one of my pistols.  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!)

MODIFICATIONS: N/A

COMMENTS:  Has the header suggests, I think the color of these remind me of crushed red rubies and the burnt lava Sue & I saw while we were in Hawaii years ago.  The grey & blue veining is the hardest part of the tooth which created a jagged and uneven tooth surface for more efficient eating.  The silver bezel makes an even more dramatic effect and protects the teeth from chipping.  Don't forget to click on the picture to see how they look on my Ed Brown Special Forces.

MODIFICATIONS: Upon request, can be cut for an ambidextrous safety and/or bob tail (Ed Brown). Beveled heal & MSH pin cutout. Thumb groove for improved access to magazine release.

COMMENTS: Take a look at the larger picture by clicking on the small picture above.  These have the authenticity effect of showing a grain pattern when viewed straight on.  These took an exceptional polish , but still show color depth. Just a pure representation of Elephant ivory and its unique character. They will not only offer a great contrast, and framing, to any black or blue gun, but they will also make a great investment. Pre-ban documented Elephant ivory is getting more scarce all the time, and as such, these grips will only increase in value over time.  As noted above:  prices for pre-ban documented Elephant ivory is becoming more and more expensive as the supply dries up.

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!)

COMMENTS:  I am always in search of new opportunities to offer dramatic and rare 1911 grips.  It is often called brain coral (scientific name is hard to pronounce) do to the round shape and growth pattern and it takes over 200 years for a fully mature "brain" to grow on the ocean floor.  Harvesting has come to an almost complete stop, but museum quality specimens are there in private collections.  Coral has been inlayed into tactical G10 material for greater durability.

Up close, the viewer can see tiny "flowers" grown together to create this unique pattern.  Grips will be very durable out at the range.  If you click on the picture you will see how they look on my Ed Brown Special Forces pistol.  Grips are smooth and have a high gloss.  I drove "tacks" for 2 hours with these on my Ed Brown.  So they are good to go!

PRICE:  sold!

Thanks Gary, you are building a very comprehensive collection.  Much Appreciated!

GG882 - Flawless Elephant Ivory Full Size 1911 Gripsgg860 

(No international shipping, no exceptions)

ARTIST: Dan Chinnock

IVORY: pre-ban Elephant

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 and/or bob tail (Ed Brown). Beveled heal & MSH pin cutout. Thumb groove for improved access to magazine release.

COMMENTS: Take a look at the larger picture by clicking on the small picture above.  These have the authenticity effect of looking white when viewed straight on, but change the viewing angle and the grain and growth pattern appears.  These took an exceptional polish , but still show color depth. Just a pure representation of Elephant ivory and its unique character. They will not only offer a great contrast, and framing, to any black or blue gun, but they will also make a great investment. Pre-ban documented Elephant ivory is getting more scarce all the time, and as such, these grips will only increase in value over time.  As noted above:  prices for pre-ban documented Elephant ivory is becoming more and more expensive as the supply dries up.

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 shipment of Elephant ivory, no exceptions U.S. only, no shipping to New York City, New Jersey or California.

PRICE: sold

Thanks Chris!

MODIFICATIONS: Setup is in place for an ambidextrous safety.

COMMENTS:  Highly book matched, this ivory was cut as a cross section of the tusk and so we see the end grain like growth rings of a tree. 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.

GG877 - Crushed Ruby & Blue Gray Veined Mammoth Tooth ivory 1911 Gripsgg877

ARTIST: Dan Chinnock

IVORY: Mammoth Tooth from Siberia

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: N/A

COMMENTS:  Has the header suggests, I think the color of these remind me of crushed red rubies.  The grey & blue veining is the hardest part of the tooth which created a jagged and uneven tooth surface for more efficient eating.  The silver bezel makes an even more dramatic effect.  Don't forget to click on the picture to see how they look on my Ed Brown Special Forces. 

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 or Aluminum. 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.

PRICE: sold!

Thanks Laz!

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.  Traditional Mainspring Housing Pin notch and bevel on the heals

COMMENTS:  I gave these a hardened gloss finish to bring clarity and 3-dimensional movement to these grips.  Be sure to click on the picture to see them on one of my pistols.  The gloss finish was really hard to kill all of the reflections during picture taking.  I will be sure to include a polishing file so the owner can choose from a satin or gloss like finish (and change it back at a later day)

As some of you know, in 2013 a storm took down a 100 year old Oak tree that could have fallen on me in my shop or lucky for me, fell in the opposite direction.  Inspection of the aftermath revealed some interesting wood for grips.  As such I have recently started to build a few grips from extraordinary wood.  The rippled burled black offers a nice contrast to the honey eyed burl above.  Fully signed for those who are building a collection.  These have a Cerakote type finish making them very durable and a finish that looks like liquid glass

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

COMMENTS: These are a great example of  Mammoth ivory.  The brown crackle on top of white ivory gives them an ancient look of old tree bark (hence the phrase "Mammoth Bark".)  However, they are totally smooth, have a high gloss, and feel like warm butter in your hands.  This effect and appearance is why Mammoth ivory is so sought after.  Nothing else comes close.  These will be a very durable set of grips and so don't be shy putting them on your every day carry or every trip at the shooting range.  Don't forget to click on the picture to see them on one of my pistols.  These types of grips are starting to become 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.)

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: Deep ocean blues & black on warm bronze ivory have these looking truly ancient, but somehow still in mint condition. With a very complex pattern, and different shades of blue, these change color when you view them at different angles or under indoor verses natural lighting. This will be readily apparent for you and others when you get them out on the shooting range. Will frame out nicely on a stainless pistol, but also add life to a black. Click on the picture above to see them on my Kimber stainless.  A nice clean and durable set that will upgrade any 1911 and certainly adding value since "blue" is becoming more 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 so remember to click on the picture to see a larger image.

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!) A high gloss set of ivory grips often sells for $50 to $100 more than a flat/dull set of grips.

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

COMMENTS: NOTE, THESE ARE OFFICER/COMPACT GRIPS

Another bold set of grips that is a great example of why Mammoth ivory grips are so in demand.  It took thousands of years for mother nature to put the black veining in the surface of the grips and allow me to make a grip that is totally smooth and have a high gloss finish.  The color clarity gives them a 3-dimensional look when viewed up close.  Great book matching took some effort to achieve, but I think the results were well worth it.  Not for the faint of heart.  Click on the picture to see them on my Kimber Ultra CDP II.  Again, keep in mind that these fit a Compact frame.

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!)

GG758 - Heavy Bark Mammoth ivory 1911 gripsgg758

ARTIST: Dan Chinnock

IVORY: Siberia

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: These are a great example of  Mammoth ivory.  The brown crackle on top of white ivory gives them an ancient look of old tree bark (hence the phrase "Mammoth Bark".)  However, they are totally smooth, have a high gloss, and feel like warm butter in your hands.  This effect and appearance is why Mammoth ivory is so sought after.  Nothing else comes close.  These will be a very durable set of grips and so don't be shy putting them on your every day carry or every trip at the shooting range.  I did a carry melt on all the edges to give them an extra soft feel in the hands.  Don't forget to click on the picture to see them on one of my pistols.  These types of grips are starting to become 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.)

200 year old Coral off of ocean floor.

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.

COMMENTS:  I am always in search of new opportunities to offer dramatic and rare 1911 grips and here is a new first for me.  It is often called brain coral (scientific name is hard to pronounce) do to the round shape and growth pattern and it takes over 200 years for a fully mature "brain" to grow on the ocean floor.  Harvesting has come to an almost complete stop, but museum quality specimens are there in private collections.  I hope to offer more like these in the future.

Up close, the viewer can see tiny "flowers" grown together to create this unique pattern.  Grips will be very durable out at the range.  If you click on the picture you will see how they look on my Ed Brown Special Forces 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:  I saw an opportunity, that if I worked these slowly by hand, I could achieve a highly book matched set.  These have golden bark on the heals and toes, and nice vertical bark lines that help define them as a classic set of Wooly Mammoth ivory grips.  This set will be extremely durable and will only increase in value in the future when ivory like this can no longer be found.  Great warm buttery feel will make any pistol hard to put down.  Don't let the pattern fool you, these grips are totally smooth and highly polished giving them that 3-dimensional look when viewed up close. Unique as a thumbprint, no one will ever have a pair like these. Don't forget to click on the picture to see how they look on one of my pistols.

COMMENTS: Remember, these are Compact/Officer sized grips.  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 seen on one of my pistols. Just a wonderful set of grips from beached washed Alaskan ivory. Super unusual and rare colors of chocolate and black, these are ready to make a major impact on the look of your pistol. These will work well on any black, blue, stainless or two tone pistol and with their high gloss, and totally smooth surface, they have a almost 3-dimensional look when viewed up close. And they have that warm buttery feel you only get with real ivory.  These will be a very durable set and feel soft in the hand.

GG649 - Rich Marbled Mammoth Tooth ivory 1911 Gripsgg649

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.

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.

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.

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.
