    I'm thinking along the same lines. This is pro stabilized. Supposedly injected at I can't remember now what PSI but a lot of pressure.

    It seems stablilized all the way thru and smells and works almost like fiberglass. I don't know if this particular flavor of wood isn't strong or he's not doing the stablilizing right or what.

    I was all excited as like you say it's suppose to be tough as nails and great durable stuff but this stuff sure ain't making it.

    I'm gonna try again to get hold of the outfit in Iowa. He had some real pretty Box Elder Burl with 2 color injection. He claims he stabilized a huge pile of wood for Ruger for handles. They want it cause it checkers very well, I of course haven't tried any of that yet but working with this stuff I think checkering would be a challenge. Still hard and soft spots.

    Just mother nature paying back for all the sins of my earlier life.

    I wondered about yours being stabilized. It looked like it was but sometimes the finish can fool ya.

    I had some birdseye maple burl a while back that was sweet looking and it worked really well. Alas it didn't last long.

    Well now that I have the Commander and some purty grips, let me just see if I have that to post up now, if not I'll kick the wife in the butt and have her do it. I think I need to do another family picture too. Wait I'm at work, I'll do it later.

    I think I may want one when they get a bit cheaper. That is the one maker that I have most of in my battery.

    Need to get a review posted on this one, but have not had a chance to pen that. Here is a pic of my recently acquired Kahr/MRI 1911, G model, with a target. Flawless shooter and very fun to shoot!

    With the arrival of the STI Escort tomorrow the 1911 section of my rebuilt collection will be complete. In fact the whole collection will be complete when the PM9 comes in.
