Project Information

Recently used some of the Osage Orange wood I've been playing with and made a new grip for my Ruger GP-100 357. It's a one piece grip when finished that slides over the handle frame of the revolver. All the inside milling was done on the drill press with router bits. The outside shaping and contouring of the handle was done completely by hand with rasps and files. A light grazing with a blow torch brang out the grain in the wood for a pretty cool finish.

Nicely done, Ross. You've combined several of my favorite things, Osage orange, hand tools and Ruger revolvers.

Thank you-It was one of the more difficult projects I've done. It turned out to be fairly complicated to mill out all the inside dimensions to the right specs for a tight fit, but all worth it in the end.
And yes I love my Ruger, I think they make great pistols and some nice rifles as well.
