    I had those same Millet sights on a Colt Government model except I had the slide milled so the rear was lower into the slide like the old BoMar installation---makes
    for a cleaner installation.

    I have never seen that kind of wood---light colored grips look good on that 1911.

    Very nice. Is that a design in the grips, or natural? I can’t tell.

    It's part of the wood; that's 'spalted'

    I wasn't familiar with the term so I looked it up. I learnt sump'n new today already :)

    Very mice :thumbup:

    I had to do a double take for a second when I first saw the thread, I initially thought it said salted wood... I had visions of rusty grip frames under the wood like the old Browning problems caused. :what:

    You made a great choice, those are sweet.

    Stay safe.
