    Did I get ripped off? Do these grips look original to you?

    Did I get ripped off? Do these grips look original to you? I bought these for my 2nd gen nickel Buntline. However I believe these are cast plastic copies from an original. They are light to the feel. The lower set in the pic came from Nutmeg and weigh more. The back of the Gun Broker set doesn't look like the Colt set either.

    The bottom set look original, the top set does not.

    Exactly what I thought. I knew the bottom set was good as I bought them from Nutmeg. It's the top set I feel are repops.

    Yep, they are too crude looking to be Colt. Easy to fool folks however, so don't feel too bad. Perhaps you can get a refund?

    I did email the seller asking for a refund. If I don't hear back in another day or so I will contact Gun Broker and see if they will step in.

    The repos are cast from originals and there is always a bit of a seam. Sometimes hard to find but it's there. You already know about the weight

    I bought a set from the same guy after I emailed to ask if they were Colt or reproduction. He replied they were Colt but obviously they are not. They are overpriced cheap repros. I emailed again with no response. Went on GB to post a review and that option wasn't there. I just wrote it off to "lesson learned ".

    Way to expensive for repros in my opinion. I can buy these as repops on Ebay for half. I paid what I felt was top dollar because the seller claimed these are correct for my gun.

    I had an unpleasant experience with this same seller years ago and anything he’s selling is avoided like the plague.

    since lots of people are getting ripped off by him, why doesn't the system allow bad reviews, to warn others? Could be the same thing with the Box Man, that has good reviews but sells expensive fakes by the thousands. Gunbroker and eBay don't want anything that will slow sales, and their profits off them.
