I tried my "new" old Ivory Alamo grips on a different gun, and can't decide which one they should go on. What say you forum members? Added another one!

i think the engraved one might look better w/pearls or newer white ivory.
those older ivories would look at home on a more weather-beaten gun, imho,

Probably need to handle them myself for awhile to be sure. But absent that, the ivory mounted on the engraved one is really talkin' to me.

Blued one. The ivory sets off the blue and case coloring. Brings it together. The nickel would look good with wood. It doesn't need the ivory to shine.

Compromise.
Rotate them between the two. One month on teh engraved and then a month on the other.
