    I had some film left over from a boar's skull I dipped so I decided to dip the grips on the old Haskell. I like it. The grips were painted the same coyote brown as the slide so the color match over that base worked well as the hydrographic film is translucent.

    I don' t know why I called it a Stallard in the title. The film activator must have frozen what few brain cells were left;). I don't seem to be able to edit the title.

    Hate to be Tony Technical, but it's:

    Stallard = 9mm
    Iberia = .40 S&W
    Haskall = .45 ACP

    And they do look good in coyote.

    Ok please forgive my appearing dumb but in pic no 1 above how does dipping produce an honest injun looking wood grain?

    Because the pattern of the film you dip into is honest injun wood grain looking.
