    What is the reasoning behind this?
    Just personal taste..Most of the time , Colt wood grips leave me looking for something better .On a master engraved revolver, it seems as though they could have found some walnut with a little more figure to it

    Oh yes. It’s on the end label. .. BHP frame (BigHip frame) instead of BP .
    Probably letters that way also. The Last bp frame , known as the BigHipIron frame, was used on this gun.
    Gun should’ve went for more with that provenance. Marc should’ve got a Colt letter with that auction... They pay off.

    (Hope you do get a BP frame one day, BHP. It will happen)

    Okay, I’m going to come clean here, I won the auction and the gun is in transit to my local FFL as we speak. Marc sent me the tracking number yesterday.

    I have wanted a BP frame gun for a while and this gun just ticked every box on my want list. I was hoping to spend around four grand on it but I would have been kicking myself if I didn’t win it so after it went up over my high bid I increased my maximum to $5k... and then I went over that. Ugh, it’s a lot of money but I really wanted this gun. I paid a little more than I wanted to and I wasn’t sure if I maybe paid too much for it.

    I’ll get a letter for it after I get it for sure. This gun will be well cared for and I’m definitely not going to shoot it. I will post pics after I pick it up.

    I'm already on the waiting list for Rob Rowen to make a set of grips for two Colt SAA's, one of which I already own and one of which I haven't found yet. I may just send him this gun and have one set of grips made for it and one for my 5 1/2" gun.

    I have picked out a nice pair of fancy walnut blanks he has already set aside for my project and he said he can do one piece grips for this gun.

    I'm going with a Fleur De Lis style grip for both guns. Inspired by this thread. https://www.coltforum.com/forums/sin...lis-grips.html

    There are nits to pick BUT the fit of the metal parts looks top notch. The casehardening looks good (I’d like to see it in natural light). And I LOVE the italicized barrel address (would love it if they could have mated the caliber stamp to the same period of just “.45 Colt”). But, sir, that is outstanding engraving. As in, quality and precision engraving beautifully executed.

    Would $5K have been “more right?” $4800? I would be very happy if I owned that revolver - and if I “overpaid” by $500, I wouldn’t lose one second of sleep.

    If the grips were one piece, I’d be happier. But throw some of the latest faux ivory one piece grips on there and shoot the thing. Congrats on a gorgeous SAA.

    I posted before I read the whole story. That gun was listed on GB by another seller for a long while at a MUCH higher price. Maybe last Fall and into the winter.

    Since it letters as Kamyk engraved, and hopefully the letter reflects the Brent/CustomShop association, you got it VERY right indeed! Had I been bidding, it would have gone for more...at least a little! Congrats!
