I may say things that some of you disagree with, but By Golley, I am always truthful in my opinions! I just like a plain Blued Steel Gun! It looks like the originals, it looks Workmanlike. A soldier from the War of Northern Aggression wold have carried a plain Blue Steel gun, and,since his life may have depended upon it, he'd most likely have looked after it! Kept it clean and well oiled!
I DO confess to being a little Flamboyant about grips! I DO think that Faux (I cannot afford REAL Ivory!) Ivory looks very nice on a blued gun. I was disappointed that the ones I bought online did NOT have the quality I needed! The escutchion with the thread pulled right through the right hand grip, and when I asked the makers to replace it, they just sent me my $30.oo back! I cannot recall what the company name was. I'm going to have a look at, "Gungrip.com," and if it is the same company, I'll pass on them!
