    Do you have any (or have you done any) that would fit my TRP that are made from Waterfall Bubinga wood? I have a custom hunting knife with a handle made from the Bubinga and I've been thinking it would be nice to get matching grips for the TRP.

    I'm not a wood expert, but I think that "waterfall" is a nickname for the quilted bubinga because the grain often has a waterfall look to it. However, I haven't heard of white quilted bubinga wood - not sure how that would look. I'm looking for someing along the lines of what you see on the knife in this thread: viewtopic.php?f=6&t=50977.

    Where did you find the black filled Delta cloisonnes?
    I know that they are authentic Colt but where the heck can they be found vs the re-pro blue filled versions?
