  1. Hi Joe, Rooster was way off on the grips, Ruger never used the red eagle in the single actions as Alexander Sturm died before they were produced which is when Bill Ruger switched to the black eagle.As for the grips on the gun they are factory, also known as squashed chickens if memory serves me. But there are some folks you can't reason with. Ruger has used a bunch of different types of eagles on their single actions including one around 1967-68 that had neck feathers. It took me a while to figure out the differences over the years but that just adds to my knowledge and enjoyment of the subject.Oh, and I didn't buy the gun, a friend of mine that is on another forum did,I was just the middle man that got the information to the buyer and seller .

      Thanks - I knew that Sturm died in 1951 but I didn't want to walk all over Kevin's (Howlin) post.  Some folks think their experience counts as the only truth.
