Hi, I work at Crimson Trace, and just wanted to mention that picture is of one of our development iterations and the final product is slighly less glossy than shown. It's a nice improvement. Our 2007 catalog will be done in time for SHOT 2007 and will have updated pics.
The best way I can relate it in words is that the release version looks less like plastic (no shine on the diode housing for instance) and a lot closer to wood. These lasergrips are made of our sturdy hard polymer material with the black activation segment being a durable rubber overmold to give it extra grip without snagging on clothing like some all-rubber grips.
We've had great customer response from the Burlwood design, but I always recommend you check them out for yourself by finding a dealer near you (http://www.crimsontrace.com/default.asp?a=dealer), calling them to see if they have stock, and getting your hands on a set to form your own opinion.
Let me know if you have any questions or have trouble finding a set in your area.

thanks for the reply!
is there anything wrong with making it out of wood? Or just that Crimson is already set up for molding...
