Now I have to make it match.

As it is in the title "politically incorrect", I'd name the gun Obama, but that would just be the wrong thing to do to a gun. It never hurt me.

Hope the stain job turns out as you desire.

Please god no! I'm sure someone has already done that to a kimber though. I can't believe no one said anything about those carved up mausers in the " too pretty to shoot" thread

If you do the whole carved wilderness mural in the stock, you absolutely HAVE to get a leather padded sling with similar design work, including your name.

Bushmaster,

As for the ivory grip cap, it doesn't really work for me, but remember: only have to please yourself. If you like it, great.

Take care!

It does work for me, either.

Tea is not staining it dark enough.

I have read that potassium permanganate dissolves purple but stains ivory brown.

Thank you for the staining info.

The white ivory does NOT work for me

I have used it on moose antlers. Never on ivory but it makes a nice walnut color on bone.

Well....it would de-emphasize that grip cap.
