For a wedding present one of my college buddies gave me a set of 1911 grips made from Elk antlers. Here's what one looks like attached to my TRP:
There's a slight problem though. The flat side which touches the frame isn't completely flat. It's a bit recessed so it leaves a gap while it's attached between the frame and the grip itself. Here's a couple pictures, with the antler grip on the left and the Cocobolo grip which came with the gun on the right for comparison:
You can clearly see the space, and on the bottom pic you can see the wood floor between the new grip and the frame. The right side grip isn't quite as dramatic, and I still need to dremel out a notch for the ambi-safety on the right side grip before I can attach it.
But the question is about filling in the space between the inboard side of the grips and the frame. Anyone got an idea how to approach this? Ideally, I think whatever medium I use should stick to the grips and not to the frame. I'm not sure where to begin. I'm sure there are solutions that would fill in the space and keep dirt out. What would the experienced minds of M4C do?
