Friends,
some time ago I bought these one-piece ivory grips at a very low price. I had hoped they would fit a SAA. Here you can see them on a SAA from aound 1938. They do not fit. they are a bit too small and the have a different "curve". But which Colt might they fit. I was suprised to find the spacer is ivory too. They do not look new. Any idea????

Can you please come up with an easy question? The grips are not for a Colt but could be from any of the reproductions including the 51 Navy reproductions. They do not look extremely old so I would rule out an antique gun unless they were more recently fit to it. Great looking grips.

I am sorry, but those easy questions I try to answer myself. (they are the only questions I am able to answer....)....

But this is helpful. I have not thought about the fact that those reproductions have been around for quite a while

Nice grips, but finding the type gun (read replica) they fit will be trial and error.

A bit off topic, but related. I have no experience with one piece grips. Being one piece I'm guessing you have to remove the grip frame to install these?

Nice grips BTW!

Yes … You must remove the backstrap to install these type of 1-piece grips. 👍👍

Thank you, I have learned something.
In this case they will go into the drawer where useless nice things stay. I do not have any replicas and I do not collect cap & ball revolvers - and ivory is tricky to sell "long distance".
Cheap is sometimes not so cheap....
