The "Why ivory on a Colt" Post, is a good run of folks sharing their grips.
How about we take a gander at your Stag grips.
Reasons you like Stag grips?
I like the look, especially when they turn yellow from body oil n' age.
They provide a bit more positive grip, due to the valley n' ridges of the antler surface.
The below: 1958 .45 Colt when it had a 5 1/2" berrel.
I have since replaced the 5 1/2" barrel with the factory Buntline 12" barrel it had left the factory with.

I think Walnut is about my favourite for authenticity on a Colt, and mine has been posted with its Walnut one-piece grips a few times on the forum.. BUT I don't like the way wood gets banged and dinged so easily when the gun really gets carried hard. Workdays I fit my ol'Sambars back on and never sweat it.. can't hurt 'em, and that's why I like them
Mine are a set of older Ajax, fit-up and final shaping done by myself.
I got only this one with stag, 3rd generation with BP frame, full blue, .45Colt. I've always thought that it is from 1987 with S/N SA71094 https://www.coltforum.com/forums/sin...rs-2012-a.html but according Colts Serial Number Lookup it is now from 1990.

1902. Shows signs of being refinished but she is mine. Grips are marked Lebannon, Tenn on the back. Otherwise I have no clue about them.
