pistol grip material stabilization
what does it mean when grip makers say the material used is stabilized. do they add something to the grip material like super glue to make the material harder or more durable. talking about wood or bone type grips. i have some bone grips for a ruger blackhawk that the grip screw nut was loose and was trying to pull out. i applied a liberal amount of super glue to that area and the problem was solved. i should add i know a local knife maker who sends his knife scales off somewhere to be "stabilized" especially the ones that are spalted or especially wormey. he's not sure what these folks do either.
