What types of wood are used for you grips?
We have learned that there are only a few types of wood that consistently hold up to our standards of quality. We have narrowed it down to Walnut, Cherry and Maple. These woods work well with our machinery, are durable enough to last for many years and are readily available.
Can I choose my own switches?
Our grips have depth limitations that will need to be addressed before we can agree to use your choice of switches. If they fit, then sure! Why not?
What kind of finishes are possible?
The possibilities are endless! Probably. Maple wood does a wonderful job at accepting a variety of stains and we're always excited to try something new. We've also painted and hydro-dipped our grips before with excellent results.
Why are your grips so expensive?
While we do use some pretty impressive machinery to achieve the general shape, the majority of the process of making our grips is done the old fashioned way; by hand. Our skilled craftsmen (and women) work to ensure that every grip that we deliver is made to perfection. The reality is that it takes time and attention to detail to create something as great as a Pioneer grip. This reality paired with our choice of high quality switches and material contribute to our higher than average pricing. We guarantee that when you feel a Pioneer grip in your hand, the price tag will be the last thing on your mind!
