Not sure custom is correct since they're mass-produced but they are different than usual. Seller has many warnings about ship times so I'll be patient for their arrival for a couple weeks.

All done.....Texas Stars.

Got the medallions from Tombstone Grips. http://www.tombstonegrips.com.

They are nicely made and not too expensive at $14 per pair. Shipping is my only complaint. They put them in a USPS SFRB (way too big) at a cost of $7 but charged $11 shipping and handling.

I'll post a combo pic with the SRC later to see how close the wood colors are.

Bisley hammer and polished pins too. Not bad for 1978.
