    Stag grips on nickel SAA

    I never owned a set of stag grips, to be honest I never particularly cared for them, especially after shooting a gun with them.

    I sold a S&W American last night and in the deal I ended up with these grips so I put them on this SAA to see if I liked them, can't make up my mind. I will have to work on them a little to get them to fit properly, don't think that will be too hard but before I do it I thought I would ask how are they to shoot with black powder loads? Maybe with less recoil they won't feel so uncomfortable to shoot.

    Anyone have similiar grips on a black powder Colt, if so how do you like them? Or do you just leave them on for show and tell?

    Fitting them may be a problem as you may end up taking off some of the patina. I would use caution.

    Those stag grips look good on that SAA. I have always liked stag on any SAA. I have two with stag grips and looking for a set of Ivory for another one I have.
    All my guns are 2nd gen so those grips proably would not fit my guns.

    One thing that I like about a good pair of stag grips, is they add a lot of heft. They are usually much heavier than wood grips of the same thickness. Even in 1911 grip panels.

    Those look great.

    I never cared much for stag - too 'Hollywood Western' for me, and they're generally poorly-fitted and often bulky.

    That said - a well-fitted pair can be attractive, but can also be hard on the hands when firing a full-patch load because of the 'bark' - it'll depend on 'your' hands.

    These two sets of Stags that I have smoothed down are much more easy on the hands...
