If any of you guys ever see anything else with this laminate pattern, please let me know. These always get some attention when I bring them out of the case all together at the range. I'm working on some grip panels for the 22/45 and my GP100 as well... we'll see how it goes. For now, enjoy!

Sweet, were those laser etched, stamped or hand carved? They look like they were done on a laser ...

I don't know JD, all's that I know is that they're a laminate. I'm not sure what the whole process is.

Hey Buckeye,

How are the Rugers to take apart and clean? I have a S&W 22A and its a pain in the A$$, it shoots good but it looks like the rugers are made alot better the S&W has a plastic recoil spacer in it and wears out and needs replacing often.

The 22A is a legend in it's own right, but I prefer the Rugers. They're super easy to take apart, but they can be a little tricky to put back together. Nobody ever gets it to go back together right away, but after you learn the technique it becomes 2nd nature. There's a ton of threads on that, plus some video's to help explain it.

Wow, thats sumthin else!
Not sure how I feel about the lamanate, but that's just me!
It can be a love it or hate it. I grew up w/ my grandpa having bench rest rifles of every color imaginable. Everything from plain wood to purple ad from plain black to a stock designed with some sort of laminate or coating giving it the appearance that it was cut out of a rebel flag. Love it or hate it, it always gives you something to look at. :cool:

All laser cut. I do believe they're all done by Altamont for TALO who is behind all the USST models.


Revolution also offer a few stock design in the red/natural/blue laminate. A nice addition would be to get one each of the coins/medals that kinda went along with the USST support.

Hey Buck on one of my contenders I've got that same wood in red, white and blue on the forearm. I think I got that about 20 years ago.
