No stag here to my REGRET! Always liked them alot. Have 1 ported SA with what looks like thin bone panels, pretty roughly done but have kept them on for some reason. Quite a bit of glue on them, came that way. Will post image sometime, see if a member might give opinion on what it actually is.

Always wore this gun while doing ranch work on couple of wooly hunting properties once had access to for many years, near both Lampasas and Crowell in TX .... digging irrigation ditches, cutting cedar breaks and thorney mesquite for the rancher's cattle too. Its just collected sweat and grease stains over many years.

Love stag grips on Old Model Blackhawks (especially Flatops) and Colt SAAs and all sorts of knives too!

Just remembered, it was on Sack Peterson's web site for his sale of stag grips. I was looking for something else and found it.

Here is a before/after pic of the same grip after an overnight soaking in coffee. I asked the wife how long it soaked cuz I couldn't remember. I do remember leaving them set on a rack to dry for 3 days. I did this to 9 set's of elk grips. Did not try it on Sambar stag's, they are a bit too expensive to experiment on.

That aged those grips a 100 years....I like it, I like that look at lot. Who gave you this recipe, what brand of coffee, was it cold or warm when you stated the soak, did you use cream and sugar. Ask the Wife her approximate soak time you left them, over night ???, I've got the three day drying time. I need precise details please.

Just a regular 8 cup pot of regular cold Folger's, overnight, approximately 12 hour soak. I recall the longer the soak the darker the finish. It was on Sack Peterson's website that the directions were on, but it's not there now.

I wouldn't think it would take a rocket scientist to do it. Just stick them in the coffee and check once in a while, like maybe hourly. If they are not dark enough for you leave them in for another hour.
