I might try seeing what that would look like with my POS clip on magwell just for grins. I'm working another set and the standard bushings just won't let me get thin enough, so slim bushings back in and the sawdust begins.

    All this if I don't starve to death. She stocked plenty of grub, I just hate taking the time to cook, or in my case heat up or whatever the box says to do.

    Lol! You just described me & my wife's relationship. ďYou doÖ, hereís the cooked foodĒ (insert many laughing emojiís). Luckily, if I donít always get my part done, she still does herís. My body fat % is testament to that. Iím either blessed, or cursed and donít know it.

    Here's a shot of those last grips with the slip on magwell.

    I got some super slims just about done today. I'll probably have em done before close of business. When exactly is close of business you ask? Could be today, or maybe tomorrow, or perhaps even next Saturday, wait that's tomorrow, maybe Wednesday.

    My wife just spent a few days up at her Mom's in Monroe. She stocked me up with food before she left. While I can cook I too would rather spend my time in front of the bench than the stove. She's going up again at the end of the month so I'll be on my own again for a few days, and then maybe one more time in May. Her Mom is getting to the age where she would be better off with someone around, and the sister that lives in Monroe is going on a well-deserved vacation. Her and my BIL do the heavy lifting so far as my MIL is concerned so we try to help out when we can, while living ~120 miles away.

    Just my personal taste Colonel but I like grips on a magwell to be flat cut, with no pin cutout. And even flat cut without a magwell. They just fit my strong hand better that way, and look better (to my biased eyes). That being said those skipline grips you made look very nice with or without the magwell, the quality and workmanship just shine through.

    Here's the last set for awhile, need to let my neck, eyes and shoulder have a bit of a break. I'm gradually building back up to where I can fiddle with grips for longer periods without being crippled. Wait, I already am.....?????

    Need a little clean up and fine tuning on the pin, looks worse in the picture than it does in the hand, hate it when that happens. I'll probably leave these smooth. With the front strap checkered, the grip is good. They are about half the thickness of the skip lined last set. Just feels better to me, we'll see what it's like when we light it off. The thicker grips might help spread the recoil a bit maybe.

    The Colonel sent these up to me today. Like 'em as much as I do?

    Thanks for leaving them a little long Colonel. I took just a smidge off the bottom of each, and relieved the left a tiny bit to clear the thumb safety. Used my disc sander and barely had to touch them to it. And you got them to the perfect thickness for me!

    Ya know a Blind Hog gets an occasional acorn. Glad I got it right. I think them stones show up better than I thought they would.
