Eagle Grips

My wife found these Eagle grips for my SAA. She got them from the son of a local gunsmith who has passed away and the son is selling off the contents of his shop. I plan on keeping the "Gambler" grips that came on her put away so nothing happens to them. I had to do a bit of sanding but not much - man talk about a stink - that gutta percha stinks when it is sanded. Reminds me of working with Water Buffalo horn for knife handles. When did Colt stop with the Eagle grips? According to the archive letter my Colt was made in 1897.

1st Gen eagles? Time to crack the books. :giggle: Smell is from sanding plastic.
In my defense I never said they were 1st gen Eagles, I merely stated the gun itself was 1st gen and asked when Colt stopped with the Eagle grips.
Didn’t mean to infer you thought they were 1st Gen. Some did.
What grips would my 1919 Colt saa left the factory with?
Non eagle hard rubber grips.
