    gregguidry,

    I'll take a pass at an explanation on the difference. The 1st and early 2nd generation grips (bird-less or not) were made of an organic material that used to be called "Gutta-Percha" sp. It is supposed to be from a plant that is similar to a rubber tree and was also called Hard Rubber. I believe it was a sort of trade name back in the day. It is very definitely tough stuff because so many have lasted so long. As I understand it when Colt changed back to the eagle grips in the late 2nd generation production is when they switched to a more modern polymer or type of plastic.

    Grips are one of my other related addictions along with single action leather.

    Good figure, dense grain walnut does it for me, followed by Ivory and bone (or antler).
