    Picked up my nickel SAA tonight

    I had the notchiness in the hammer fixed and the grips replaced. These are Hogue ebony grips and the custom fitting turned out really nice. I’m thinking of having nickel Colt medallions installed in the grips. Anyone know a place that could do this? I think it would really set this gun off. I’m going to call Nutmeg Sports tomorrow and see if they can install their Colt medallions in these grips for me.

    Really pleased with the work Duncan’s Gunworks did. They even fixed the original pallet wood grips so if I need to send off the ebony grips I can put the original grips back on temporarily.

    Thanks!

    I actually have a Smith & Wesson model 29 with a 6” barrel. It’s a punishing gun to shoot with magnum loads. I’m going to try .44 Special loads in it the next time I go to the range.

    1979. Not a great year but this gun looks pretty good and now that the notchy hammer has been addressed it functions as it should. Timing and lockup is very good.

    Another picture of the gun.
