Finally got some new grips for my Single Seven. I settled on Altamont to make them as I liked both their style and their prices. I got a pair of their New Vaquero Bird's Head grips, which they swore
would fit my Single Seven.
I was skeptical, but ordered the grips anyway. When they came, they fitted like a custom-made set ... right on the money! Grips-3-small.jpg
These are walnut with Lone Star medallions. I really like the color and grain of the wood.
I love shooting this pistol. It's surprisingly accurate and with 85-grain Fed Mags instead of the Full-on 100-grainers, it's enjoyable to shoot. It's even more fun with 85 grain XTPs over a light load of CFE Pistol.
I'm going to crank out some lower-velocity Acme Bullet Hi-Tek-coated lead .32s for plinking and varmint-shooting. Acme's bullets are available in a form with no lubricating groove, which lets them build a more stable bullet because of the longer contact area, they claim. We'll see.
I have a bunch of tiny .32 S&W (Short) loads that I call a 'reloadable .22 LR' and I shoot tin cans with them. Cheap, fun, and the brass can be reloaded many, many times.
