    Colt SAA wood grips / gold medallion

    I got these off EBay for $38 delivered. Don’t like light color so I stained them dark. I don’t know if medallions are replaced but look pretty good.

    I have a 2nd gen 357 magnum that has walnut grips with those type of medallions. I think some colts came that way. My grips have been used a lot and not to light in color.

    They remind me of grips for the Colt NF.

    I'm certainly no expert on SAA grips, but I suspect those are not genuine Colt grips.
    As far as I know Colt followed the same standard on SAA grips as on DA revolvers..... the screw was blued steel and there was one blue steel bushing on the right side.

    On DA revolvers brass screws and bushings are a certain sign of replica or fake grips.

    I believe the blue screw and brass bushings would be correct for NF grips/stocks. Surprisingly Colt used some pretty ugly wood for the grips on a lot of NFs, yours look better than many I've seen; the darker stain probably helped.

    Best regards,
    My opinion is free, and worth every penny of it.
