    Colt Official Police grips

    Recently acquired a Colt Official Police, confirmed 1938 manufactured. In VG condition, however, it came with what looks like stag horns made in plastic.

    I'd like to change the grips to "period correct" grips or real stag horns at the very least.

    Suggestions and photos would be highly appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Larry

    These would be period correct.



    And although I don't have any myself, I might recommend stags by Patrick Grashorn aka executioner. Several members have them and pictures are posted in threads that you should find by searching on grashorn.

    Mike,

    Thanks for the input.

    A1A,

    Thanks. I'll make contact with Patrick and see what he has in inventory for my OP.

    Regards,

    Larry

    I was cruzeing E-Bay the other day and seen a set of service grips for $99.00, buy now. I setteled for a set of Coltwood grips for my 1944 reblued OP. A set of Patrick's stags would look good.

    Thanks, Bob.

    I'll keep an eye out on flea-bay for a set of Coltwood too.

    And as A1A mentioned, I contacted Patrick yesterday and ordered a set of white bones grips. About time the 'ole gal gets a pair of nice blings.

    Gratuitous photo to follow when project's done.

    Get ready to be very happy with your new stag stocks. Mr. Grashorn does exceptional work for a reasonable price. Plus he is fast in getting the stocks done and shipped. Just a great guy to deal with.

    FYI -- "Coltwood" stocks would be for guns later than yours.

    Indeed, those I pictured are, as the advertising claims, "checkered walnut" not Coltwood plastic. I know, I (re)checkered them.
