Hi,

Can anyone please give me information on these grips? They are fitted on a 1st. Generation Colt SAA (Serial No. 136XXX). Please see the attached photos.

The horse with the rider does not seem to be an original Colt logo.

Thanks.

Maybe a more clarifying question would be - "What does the gun look like that they came off?"
Pictures would help - thanks.
