WTB: Factory Cocobolo grip for Micro

Edit:

I could be wrong about the Cocobolo, I see some new listed with Rosewood, that will work. If you have replaced your grips and have a set laying around I'd like to take them off you hands. I'd like all my 1911 style guns to look alike.

Thanks, I'm aware of them and actually watching an ebay listing. I'm in no hurry, hoping to find some collecting dust.

I could be wrong but I thought I read some place, some of the major makers of grips had stopped production of "Cocobolo" grips because they were no longer able to get the raw wood cocobolo product.

Ahrends Grips is the website that said cocobolo is on the endangered species list and no longer available, maybe just to them?

I checked some other sites and they appear to still be available.

If Rosewood will work for you then you might want to give a look to the Raasco Grip site. They have some really nice ones and I think are a little less expensive than some you have been looking at.

The problem may be there are not a lot on members that are active onsite that own a Micro to have extra grips for it. But I do know there have been a few people change out grips.

Thanks for your help. Raasco doesn't really have what I'm looking for. I want OEM style grips. Thanks again.
