Excellent.  I'm thinking about some checkered buffalo horn, but kind of low key on a blue gun. 

I am collecting the outlaw and lawmen pistols these I will not change , the Bonney , Wild Bill and Doc

Fun!  Never had the birds head grips on anything,don't think I've ever had one in my hand! Tempted.  Tho I have and have had a variety of percussion, cartridge conversion is also interesting.  Got to keep on task and get a replacement for the .45 lever gun I let go, and get the new CZ slicked up a bit.

These are mesquite burl made by Richard C. in Hereford, Arizona. I think the look fantastic.

Mesquite would for sure be a choice I am considering or Koa wood ,   As looking to match the Thunderer and Plow grip so somewhat limits choices

The real pearl looks fantastic but I would cry if I damaged them.

It's not a Colt. But here's my OMV.

Nothing like Real Stag. The grips are worth almost as much as I paid for my first Ruger Vaquero!

im running the black plastic ruger offered on their centennials , they are slim enough to fit my hend and course enough not to slip , i love the look of those shown above and i like a nice set of walnut grip scales , but my working revolvers are still the tools i bought and have to function first for me , 

 

i wont say i dont have a set that have grip scales that look good but are not my favorite in function , my EMFs have their original scales that are engraved and glossy/slick , i seldom shoot them for just that reason ,

I have real Colts I'd like to fit out with real ivory, but real ivory has become a pain in the backside to acquire and own. Thirty years ago you could get read-made paper-micarta grips in an ivory color -- I have a pair on a Ruger Super Blackhawk. Not to hijack the thread, but does anyone know where those are available? I'm told there is an even higher-quality ivory substitute available now, but I don't know it's name and I don't know where to buy it. Any and all advice cheerfully accepted, here or via private message.
And I didn't see a single set of ugly grips on this thread -- y'all have some beautiful sixguns.

Dont think its a Hijack at all the more grips and sources the better .  Are you thinking of the Magna Tusk ?
Only place I have seen them is the Ebay store

That may be it. My PC here in the office won't let me access e-bay, so I'll have to check at home. I appreciate the help.

I just found out I can access Ebay if I change browsers. I think those are the grips I read about. I'd buy a pair, as an experiment, but the guns are in the U.S. and I'm in Germany, it'll have to wait until next year.

I do but I am a fulltime gunsmith with a backlog of gun work. So the problem is time and cost.  I probably have at least 4 or 5 hours in each set.

What is American ivory?

Really nice! Grips and gun.  Only ever owned one engraved gun - a Browning Gold Line Target too pretty to shoot, traded it off.  Have to try once more.
