wood grip panels

Hey all. I'm looking for anyone or any place that makes blank/unfinished wood grip panels that'd work on 45-framed paintguns. I'd like to learn how to engrave and eventually customize a few sets of grips, but I don't have the time and resources to make the blank panels.

I'll admit I don't know much about this, but it's wintertime and I want to learn something new and make something nice for paintball this coming year. Would full size 1911 panels work? Is there someone on here that makes blank panels? Any info would be appreciated.

Thanks for reading.

I have found ebay to be the best place for that.

Just search "1911 wood unfinished"


$10-$20 a set is not bad.

I thought InfamousSmiley had a few he had made. This thread is a year old, so I would PM him, rather than post, but he had some panels, and might be making more...

Ty, I see he hasn't been on since May, so I don't think I'm going to go that route. Thanks for the link though.

I think I'm going to just have to create an eBay account and get a few sets of oak. Amazon has some but they are a bit more expensive.

Thanks for the tips guys.

He can’t get on MCB at work. Not sure if he still has the grips or not, but doesn’t hurt to ask.

I made some myself in one afternoon. With only one trip to Michael's. I used my wood burning tool, a drimal, sand paper and stain. Lmk if you want pictures or help or anything. The tools you would need are cheap. Less than $75 to be able to make all the grips you want.
