New Jack for 1911 Grips

I modified this jack for 1911 grips and I am looking for opinions. It's a hybrid of my old unit logo. Let me know what you guys think?

Nice.

Is it vertical or horizontal on the grips?

CNC?

I always have liked the flame included since that symbolizes the pathfinder part of the old mission.

Vertical, laser etched G10.

I tried to add it but I am a shitty artist with some limited Photoshop skills courtesy of MCSC. If someone can hook it up I would love to include the flame and wing.

If someone has the hook up at the FRA it would be awesome to get the artwork for the Jack that they used on the coin.

Looking forward to seeing the final product.

Slightly out of my lane, but I am good friends with the owner of MIL-TAC. He has the contract to make all of the G10 grips for the USMC 1911s. PM me if you would like for me to pursue this option.
