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.
