View Full Version : Refinished Grips with 1st Cav inlay
2nd October 2007, 15:04
I figured that I should at least show what outfit I was in during 'Nam. So I went to the Army/Navy store and got a couple of CAV pins. Ground the pins off the backs, made an outline as to where I wanted them on the grips. then I went to town with my Dremel tool, got exactly what Iwanted it to look like.Mounted the pins with expoxy and then covered them with polyeurathene, and they came out pretty good for a first time try.

Nice job on the grips.
That is the only place it is permissable to use a "Dremmel" on a Rock.
All kidding asside the grips look real good, and show your pride in your Unit as well as the Rock.
