    Are Ajax Colt SAA Ivory Polmer Grip sets any good?...

    Well i am trying my hands at fitting a set of one piece grips before i take the plunge with some expensive stuff and ran across one of these sets...
    i know they are Polymer and do not have high hopes but i am wondering if anyone else tried these and had any success?....
    the one i am looking for is the one piece grips with the panels and the spacer....
    my worries are if they need to be sanded will that be a problem?....
    i wonder if they are oversize or will be too small fit to the frame....
    thanks in advance God Bless,John
    the way i am able to run a one piece set of grips on a Ruger Flattop Blackhawk is i added a Power Custom Colt SAA 2pc frame...
    i was able to get a screaming closeout deal from Midway USA a few weeks back in Brass and it fits any second gen or third gen Colt Saa grips
    here is some pics of the kit i am looking at





    and here is the set of grips i want to make...they are made by Lone Star Custom Grips...
    they are the closest to the grips i am trying to copy
    i think they are Giraffe Bone or maybe American Holly...
    i like the Giraffe Bone as i think they resemble the Cow Bone i am told these are made from
    these i am told are American Holly


    and these are Giraffe Bone


    here is my gun currently
    frame is just tried on and not fitted yet




    and here is the gun and grips i am trying to model this all after

    I Remember reading lots of info on what’s best for ivory synthetic . Many posts on it, I recall powder , a key word.
    cozmo was a participant - he has knowledge and talents in both one piece and screw style .
    i would reach out to him on his advice ...purchase and actual fitting.

    Boone Trading Company used to make stocks, aka grips, from polymers and a powdered ivory made by finely grinding all the scrap ivory the amassed from making grips and other ivory items. I have a set; that my ex-wife scrimshawed for me. They have "aged" somewhat like real elephant ivory; lost the bright white finish the had when new.




    The Eagle "prop" was carved by Dave Marlatt, of Cambridge, Ohio; I have a damascus blade to go with the handle I just haven't got the courage up to drill the grip!

    The Ajax always have a pure grainless whiteness that screams out "SYNTHETIC!!". That "Resin-Ivory" is a whole different story though. And that giraffe is real pretty stuff.
