    About 10-15 years ago, I purchased just the sterling silver snake from an outfit that had a lot of Eastwood spagettii western repro stuff. Put it on my 5 1/2 Cimarron .45 and walla: A real impressive looking gun. I don't know how many years later I see Cimarron copying me (LOL) with their Man with no name Navies. Their snake is slightly different than mine though and dosen't look as good-finish wise. I saw a pic of Wyatt Burp's the other day, but don't remember what thread it was on. If I can run across the name of the place I bought mine from I'll give it to you if they are still around. It was very simple to install-just drill 3 or 4 small holes in your grip and add a little wood glue. Price if I recall was about $85-$100.

    Bane,
    You mean like this? I got them here:Spaghetti Western Replicas, Gunfighter Gear and Accessories
    Just the snakes in silver and mounted them on the Ebony grips. You can find a similar snake made of Pewter on ebay, but they are not as nice.

    Here's an example of the "Good/Bad/Ugly gun, Cimarron 51 Navy arm. These grips are custom, by Bob Lescovic. They ae exquisite. The snake is inlayed to the wood, not just sitting on top.
    Also note the added detail to the eye.

    Do you remember how much he charged? I really like how he set the snake in the grip as you pointed out Very Cool! and the color with the snake i like that too.
