At Marston Gun Leather all exotic hardwood grips are stabilized. While this is a time-consuming process, it protects your grips from developing cracks from temperature changes. We use a moisture meter to verify that the moisture content of the wood is below 10%.
To speed up the drying process, a rough cut blank, slightly oversize, is placed on a drying rack in a kiln or oven for several hours at a low temperature…then it is shaped to exactly what is needed.
