Those look great with the blued finish! They really "pop"! Very nice.

Thanks Wave

The fit was really tight, had to shave just a hair off one panel with my dremel for it to snap it. But I'd rather have them snug than sloppy.

Very good looking grips. How do they feel when you shoot?

I'm hoping to get to the range this weekend. I'll let you know.

I like the grip frame on the Super Blackhawk better than the Blackhawk. Its a little longer with enough room for my pinky. I put rubber grips on my 357 blackhawk so my pinky wouldn't have to rest under the grip frame.

I agree - the dragoon grip frame feels great with the long barrels. My SBH is a 10.5 inch and it feels surprisingly well balanced despite the looooong barrel. And its heavy enough that 44 Mags are pleasant all day long. Mine has the original walnut panels which look good on the stainless. Those white panels look great on the blue. But now I'm just repeating myself......

I have ivory grips on one if my Vaqueros and then bonded ivory on the other.
Ivory, real genuine ivory is a weird material. It has no temperature it always feels neutral. There is a tactile feel to it that is unusual. I can place both pistols on the top shelf of my safe and feel around with out being able to see and I can tell by feel which one is real ivory and which one is bonded ivory.
The ones I have are smooth and yet your skin grabs the Ivory...
Ivory is special. It is too bad it has become so rare and expensive.
If they wanted to it would be possible to have more ivory than we have now.
Mine are Walrus tusk.
Walrus are not endangered....
A buddy if mine is a bush pilot in Alaska and brought some back years ago and another guy started making grips so we all got ivory grips on our pistols and knives too. I was waiting to get the second one done and it didn't happen then I got to move back home to Texas.
So I do not know if I will ever be able to get another set.
Ya never know ....but the laws have changed so I don't know if there will ever be any ivory again.
It is Too bad. There are a lot of Inuit and Eskimo that gather walrus tusk and ancient mammoth and sell it.
Now with the new laws they can't do that any more.
I some how doubt that the animal rights activists can kill the sales of ALL ivory.
I completely support conservation of elephant's and condemn poaching them for their ivory.
The idea that ivory and elk antlers and buffalo horns are now off-limits is wrong.
It hurts the native people in Alaska and put a lot of honest folks in legal limbo.
Lets go after the bad guys and leave the good guys alone.....
OK. Thread derail off.
Your new grips look wonderful and they are way stronger than genuine ivory.
Enjoy them.

That's a worthy swap! The ivory does look good against the bluing!

Nice! I have a blackhawk that came with the polymer factory grips and i swap them back and forth with my original vaquero when the mood strikes for looks. Both are blued. The contrast really sets yours off
