Has anyone had any experience with Eagle Grips, in particular I would like to know about the Ultra Ivory that they make. What is the quality and such? I have been debating buying a set as I have read that they are really good. I am not sure that I want to put real ivory on my 1991A1. Thanks!

I have a set of Eagle rosewoods, and like them very much. The wood is very attractive, and the checkering is perfect. At a recent gun show, I looked through maybe fifty-sixty sets of Eagles, which were in unmarked boxes (so I had to look throught them all, right?), and was not as impressed with the quality of some sets. Maybe they were old; a lot were marked "Made in India", and I think they're now made here. The checkering was flat on some sets, and the styles were somewhat dated. The wood itself was beautiful, though. Don't know about the faux ivroy.

I've got several pairs of stag grips from Eagle. I've not seen the "Ultra Ivory" grips but from what I've read and seen on their site, they look good. I may have to order a set just to see for myself.

I was looking for the stag grips but apparently they do not make them any more. That's a shame as I do not have any. I am still interested in seeing the Ultra Ivory though.

Simian, Eagle was geting their stag antlers from India (picks ups off the ground not from dead stags) and the government has greatly restricted the export of the antlers, if not stopped them.
