It is with Great pleasure I share this project with All!

A Dear friend, and an award winning Master Woodsmith, Robert
Yarger has lent his lifetime talent in producing these gun grips in exotic woods for your Shadow Pinball!

Each set fits super smooth, and is branded with the Stickman Logo.
As Roberts work fetches in the thousands of dollars in the Global Puzzle Market, it is a gift to have an artist signed work from him on a game!
Roberts work can be found here:

http://www.stickmanpuzzlebox.com/

At this time we have made 5 sample sets, with a few more to come!

We have handmade grips in Leopard wood, Plain and with Inlay
Bloodwood, also Plain and inlaid.

We are working on Walnut, and Blonde Maple for the Dark and Light variety.
Purpleheart samples as well.

There are a dozen in stock at this time, and I need to do in large batches, so if something sells out, it will take a few weeks to restock, likely on just the first batch.....Im pretty good with Inventory.

The All wood Variety, no inay, are $59 for the Pair, including shipping,
and the inlaid variety are $79, incuding shipping for the pair.

Yes, we may be adding mercury dimes in the next batch, these, might run $79-$99 depending on wood, and inlay.

I thought they looked and felt fantastic as grips....so much nicer then plastic....I hope you all enjoy!

Find these in my shop by cicking on Arts Arcade next to my Avatar!

It continues to kick my ass and high speed, thanks to you, Kevin!

Can anyone send me a side photo of any gun handle that has grips that come off? Or share which ones do?
I cant remember or tell, but I think T2 is all metal, 2 pieces, but dont remember others...

Guns and Roses has grips that come off.

You are correct about T2 and STTNG being all metal and in 2 pieces. You can see other shooters here:

Seriously, not a plug, those look great!

#22 1 year ago

oh yeah

#23 1 year ago

Amazing makes me want a shadow even more

#24 1 year ago

Walnut is looking Great, and a Blonde Maple as a nice white touch for those thinking of Mother of Pearl!

Mercury dimes are in, and these will be limited.

In fact guys, dont expect these to hang around. Robert will get busy or bored, and likely the end of these or a short run.
I dont thing there is enough demand for hundreds in production, so if you are thinking about it......please dont wait.

More pics coming!

Nice! Now if you could make a set for Dirty Harry...

If there is a removable grip, and someone wishes to send me a pair, I should be able to produce, with preorders
in last run.

Robert is a living Picasso, in his genre. While not the extant of his talent, this is an escape from the limited pieces he designs,with a mile long waiting list, and a favor to me. Heres a recent Auction..$4140!

That Box is really cool.
Art, I had mentioned indiana gun handle before. However, with the textured grip I would have to mill the grip off and flatten stock. Then I believe the grips would work, very custom job. Slightly different gun than Shadow to.

I havent physically looked at one, but am I incorrect that there are no plastic grips, its a cast metal one piece?

You are correct, but I'm betting a thin grip could be made to fit over the top of the knurling. Still trying to figure out a good way to attach it without having to modify the original handle--but it should be do-able.

#30 1 year ago

Confirmed that this will be the last run.

Ill post quantities when they arrive.

Based on time and materials, its difficult to imagine finding these contracted at $10-$12 an hour.

Going to keep a couple myself.

#31 1 year ago

Very nice - I'm digging these!

Now I just need a Shadow to install them on.

Just a heads up.

I have heard from 1 customer that his bolts would not go through the center hole easily.
We went back and forth a few, with some pictures, as I checked my bolts and the grip stock.

While his pictures match mine, as looking like original bolts, it appears there is .25 mm or less difference
in the size of the Bolts. There is clearance in the Plastic grips, but the wood was made tight, so it woulnt need
over tightening or be loose.

So we now know of 2 sizes of bolts. Who would think?

For those of you receiving orders already shipped, it is possible this might affect you.
Easiest solution is a dremel bit of stone or emery cylinder and about 30 seconds on each or a drill with a hair larger bit.

The customer that had this issue could wiggle one bolt through.

If you have this problem and have issues in resolving and need help or return, please LMK.
