After seeing the pics of Cocked&Locked's Highway Patrolman with T-grip and stag grips, I was thinking about picking up some of the American Elk grips that have become a popular alternative to stag.
I know that some folks (Antler Crafts of Oregon, Spresser) make elk grips for the 1911 for as low as $50, but has anyone run across N-frame grips of elk for any lower than the $150 that Eagle charges?

Have you done a search here? I believe awhile back there was a poster who did elk stag grips and showed them .. If not here pop over to The Firing Line and do a search there.

Did a search, I belive you may be referring to my post from a few months back about bone grips, where I showed off my 1911 stocks.
There's some fellow who goes by username "executioner" who makes stag grips for the N-frame, but he has no posts outside of his entries in the For Sale forum. He's asking $115, might need to drop him a line and see if they're elk or sambar.

are made by a guy in Colorado who posts on the S&W Forum as "executioner". I don't know if that relates to his day job or what?:eek: Anyway, he makes N-frame elks for sale and will also make to order if you want them fatter or thinner. I have bought from him and he is straight and quick to deliver. He used to put S&W medallions on but I think he got lawyered out of that.

I've got a beautiful set of his elk antler grips on my Colt New Service.

Jeez, $150 don't sound too bad considering Ajax is gettin' $250 for Sambar now days. I bought mine 10 years ago and paid 80 bucks. Things have gone up a lot for some reason, probably a supply and demand thing.
