    My absolute favorite grips on a Colt, and yours are fantastic! Thanks for sharing.

    I contacted Rob today. He has quite a backlog of work and can't take my gun right now so I'm going to get on his waiting list to have a set of grips made for the Colt custom shop gun I just bought.

    Very nicely made grips! I like the fact that they were completely finished, with several coats of shiny varnish (or oil), before the checkering was executed.

    So, having talked to Rob, I have an idea of about what you must have paid to have those grips made. I'm not going to post it here though as I'm not here to judge and, quite frankly, I think it was totally worth it. Which leads me to a question, do you shoot those guns? If not, do you plan on shooting them? They appear to be unfired and unturned at least to my untrained eye. Have you had any action work done on them?

    They are absolutely gorgeous but with what you must have in them I would be a little hesitant to shoot them. Man, they would look good in a nice cowboy rig though.

    SDRider, I brought the set back to Colt in Connecticut a few years back because I wanted the full bushing in both of them. I realize I could of had them drilled out but it's what I wanted. Colt installed new cylinders with the full length bushings for a nominal fee. I haven't shot or turned them. I have a few first Gens that I'm happy to have and other newer Colts. I use too shoot plenty of pistol competitions way back then but now only shoot long range. I have some nerve damage in my neck so I kind of shake a bit so no more pistol competitions. Handguns were always my thing and I do love the Colt SAA's. The next one will have to be engraved.....now were talking money! It's like a love affair with these things. ..we're all a bunch of Casanova's when it comes to our Colt SAA....can't dance with just one

    Believe me, I totally get it. I was just curious. I’m not proficient enough to attempt competitive shooting myself, I just enjoy plinking for fun.

    They look stunning with those grips and I’d have a tough time deciding if I wanted to use them or not. Heck, I go back and forth on an early 3rd gen gun I own for some reason. I really didn’t mean anything by the comment.

    These and full checkerd are my favorite style of grips. Seeing yours has me thinking pretty hard about having some wood ones made for one of my other SAA's. These are on a 1958 vintage gun which gets shot quite a bit.

    SDRider, I hope you didn't think you said anything wrong. I certainly don't think you did. I'm glad you called Rob and got on his list. It seems like everyone is calling the poor guy! He'll be working till he old and grey! LOL!
