    Ivory?

    How about pictures of your SAA ivory? Kinda like pinto beens..."just can't live without 'um" legal, preban, old ivory.

    Makes me wonder has the oldest pair we can document via Colt factory letter?

    I'll start with two of my favorites. The checkered Eagle has a Texas Star on the off side.





    This pair I had made up 30 years old. The checkered pair above I picked up 2nd hand 12 years ago. Both were cut from pre-ban, legal ivory.

    Typical of most of my collection is my DIY SAA project --


    The Ivory itself is sorta DIY, in that when I was working in Africa in 1951 I had a local ivory carver copy several Colt & S&W grips, a mm oversize to allow me to fit them, which I did in this case 30 years later. I bought the .38-40 SAA for $300 the day I drove out of NY when I retired in 1980. Once settled in OK I did my own décor, engraving, the grips, the silver & nickel plating.

    These are on a 14,000 range saa shipped in 1876. The stocks are unlisted on the factory letter but they fit the gun like they grew on it. Shipped to Kittredge so the dealer might have installed them.

    I traded a $4-500 flint pistol for this 1874 SAA at Baltimore gun show in 1980. Bore is EXC but outside shows a hard life, aftermarket nickel showing a lot of wear & ivory grips, sound but showing quite a few chips. etc. --
