Anybody know who makes 1-piece style versions of these? I checked Elen Hunting and they do not list them.

Recognize that horn is hollow with a bone center. It would be very rare if ever to find a piece of horn thick enough for one piece grips. Contact a supplier of horns grips and ask them if they'll ship you a pair before drilling the hole. Then shape a center piece of wood and glue the grips to it. Most one piece grips are made that way, although of course you can get one piece walnuts from SAA specialists like Dave Lanara, member of this forum.

Over the yrs I've made quite a lot of grips from horn by using a piece of hardwood for the center piece.Sometimes it's hard to find it thick enough to duplicate the size of original Colt grips.
