Aren't those diamond shape cutouts to avoid any conflict with those crazy internal locks Ruger once used.

I'm a big fan of stags. Most are Elk from Grashorn, some are real. I have since soaked the elks in coffee, making them look aged. Some day I'll get another group pic.
Sambar on the Colts

Elk on the Remington's.

Elk on all the Rugers, except the short barreled Super 41, which has Sambar.

looks like stag heaven to me, what a great collection you have. Question for yea, just how long of a coffee soak did you give those elk grips.

JPGLSG, That's what I thought too. True Ruger stags were made back when Old Models were still being manufactured so that's another reason why I think they are aftermarket grips.

No, Sir, I do not. The grips are not marked, and the gun was brought in my the widow of the owner, and she did not know.

Uh, um, well, I don't recall actually. I know it was at least a day, and then had them on a rack to dry for a few days. It's been a few years since I did it. They were really rough when the got dry, but regular handling smooths them up. I read about soaking them in coffee in a thread in this forum so maybe a search might help the timeline. Sorry I couldn't be much help in that regard.

I've posted this picture before, but the bottom gun is a Tyler New Vaquero with stags supplied by him.
Looks even better in the flesh than here.

I got a great set of stags for my SBH. Beautiful but will abrade the hand. These grips will be left as is until some solution comes that does not modify the grips. Right now, I'm using the wooden grips. Meditation continues on this dilemma.

Now I know what the .44 Special NM Blackhawk will wear, if the old fellow who had it brings it to the next show. I will buy it if he does.

And that S&W DA snub with the Sambar grips? Amazing look. No modern gun looks half that cool to me.

Recently I acquired a NM Blackhawk 45 Colt with a set of Ajax grips. Thought I'd replace them but the look is working okay with me now.

Here is a picture of the backs of two grips. One is stag and one is plastic stag. Guess which one is the plastic? It doesn't take a genius, even without the labels.

Horn/bone/stag grips look good on any revolver. All nice grips and photos here. I dressed up my 1955 Early Chiefs Special with genuine India Sambar Stags some years back.

I invested in a set of Elk Sag grips for my Service Six... I mentioned that I liked a set of Herrett grips I had because of how they helped with the recoil because they were a bit wider than the stock grips that came on my gun. He did his magic and he sent me these. Indeed this is proof that fat bottom girls make the world go round. Super comfy even with full house .357's... She is not a safe queen or a BBQ princess. I love to CCW this gun and I'll run a few rounds down range on a regular basis. Kudos to Sack Peterson on doing an excellent job. Worth the wait for a quality set of grips.
