Ruger Mark II 22/45 wood grip project

I love the Mark series pistols but I am not a fan of plastic, especially grips. After grinding out the grip area, I made these from scratch. Probably not good for the resale value, but I never sell anything anyway. Hope these pics help if anyone else wants to do this.

Walnut. I root the the pile looking for unique pieces when I'm using it for guns.

Spell check.?. I root through our lumber for unique pieces. I was thinking of using hickory but I wasn't in the mood to spend a LOT of time sanding.

Great looking grips. Really makes that gun shine. If I had the talent I'd try to make a pair but :-( I'm not that good. Sure looks better than the plastic frame.

How did you attach the grips to the plastic frame?

I was going to reinforce sections of the frame to accommodate grip bolts but in the end I got lazy and glued them. If I have to take them off, it won't be impossible, but I really don't see any reason why unless I get bored and make another set.

Very cool. Always nice to diy, works the mind and helps fuel your pride in YOUR gun. "There are many like it...but this one is mine......".
