    Well, I received a set of grips from VZ grips the other day. They are the Desert Blonde canvas Micarta. I put them on my Springfield Operator and they fit perfectly. No gaps, nothing but pure enjoyment....

    Then came the horror. These things absorb oil like it they are sponges on a leafy green italian salad. I have had Micarta scaled knives before and never had this happen.

    The grips turn a dark rusty brown from the oil which looks terrible. I wrote the company back and was told to clean them with gunscrubber, etc. The problem is worse.

    Anyone have any ideas about Micarta? I took them off the gun and put the ebony ones back on, so now I have a set of multi colored grips. Any ideas how to clean em so I can sell them to someone with no oil on their guns?

    I will post some pics tomorrow.

    Anyone wanna buy a set? never been used.....

    Dravur,
    Micarta does not a good grip make. I wish I had a good suggestion for you.
    Check out my stuff enter NRA1776 at checkout for 10% off. Guaranteed not to soak up oil. You might try a lanolin based hand cleaner.

    Thanks,

    Raleigh

    Hey - I'd love to hear more about your grips - would really be cool to have dark buffalo horn grips for my 1911. When is your website going to be back up ?
