    Yes sir Terry, I agree. The grips seen in the pic of my gun that came out of Yuma , Arizona are so melted and warped they aren't even usable, hence the Ivory.

    Heat them, stretch them back into shape and put them back on the gun so that the gun will be original again.

    Yes sir Judge. If I ever decide to sell the gun, not likely, I'll give the grips the treatment you advise.

    I have said it before, I am generally not a fan of nickel plated guns but the Colt dual tone finish just looks fantastic. That is a beautiful Super .38 LEO918 and Saintclair's blued example is too.

    The grips pictured on the gun were made mid to late 1950’s and they seem not to shrink much if any.

    I really like the size of the roll marks on these older Colt's. The new Colt Classic's have the same size.
