If you had them make say 150 pairs and it cost you $150.00 a pair that's $22,500 and that's not including the R&D.
So who's in for a pair Wink

Dont take this the wrong way, but at any given moment I'm not convinced that there are 150 - 200 who are actively collecting and shooting Auto Mags. 

Rarely do I feel like there are more then 20 - 25 people who are active here. 

I would say the only person in a position to cut such a deal might be the new AutoMag company. 

So if you all are interested in this, that might be a way to get the buying power you need.

I agree with you 100% 

I was being a bit sarcastic in that last post because the Auto Mag community is rather small and limited, you would be hard pressed to find 15-20 people that would be interested in buying a pair let alone 150-200 people and at $150.00 a pair which I kept artificially low thinking most would consider a reasonable price.

What if the price was double or ??? 
I think you could cut the potential pool of interested buyers in half, or I could be completely wrong on my assumption.

I thought the picture Bruce had posted looked interesting but I would need to see them in person before I would say yay or nay but I think they look promising.

Then you need to figure out the finish, either way its an expensive long shot and after all that work it might look like crap, not feel right or people are just not interested.
 
I think Patrick would be a great asset in getting Aluminum grips made but I think Patrick has his hands full trying to resurrect the Auto Mag, he has not finished his first project and I cant see him taking on a 2nd one.

If someone had a pair that were like the ones Bruce had a picture of I would be willing to take a gamble.

I think that G10 makes a very good grip material. 

 It comes in lots of colors and can be made as smooth or as rough as you like.  It is for a lack of a better term, "very grippy".  I use it on my Kimber Solo that I carry as it is a small gun and does not have much to hold on to.  I am using them on my heavier recoiling 1911's in 10mm and 460 Rowland.

VZ does a great job on theirs.

If someone is willing to make a pattern I'd be willing to try casting a pair from aluminum the next time
I set up to do some for my other hobby. They'd likely need to be smooth or with some sort of shallow serrations as a grip surface. I believe shell molding /investment casting could have a shot at reproducing checkering but I don't (yet) do that sort of casting.

I mentioned I'd need a pattern as the parts usually shrink 1-1.25% so a pattern is made larger that the finished part to allow for shrinkage....

If you are wondering what the 'other hobby' is (and haven't guessed by my member name and avatar) go here: http://tanks.linite.com....
