Just got these mounted. Zane at LonestarCustomGrips made a set for my .44 Special Flat-top out of white American Holly that I think turned out especially well! Much better than the plastic imitation ivory on the gun when I bought it!
Thanks, Wendy. I think so, also. It is amazing how well they fit, since I did not send my grip frame to Lane. He tells me they will "yellow" slightly with age, probably just get better looking. I was surprised how well I liked the look of the white plastic grips that were on the gun, wanted to upgrade to better material and could not see paying for real ivory. I think these will suit me fine. I usually don't have Ruger medallions put on custom grips, but I like them on these.
I also have some Holly-wood grips on one of my blue BH guns & they have gotten darker with age. I do believe they are my favorites on all of my rugers. You have good taste indeed! Enjoy your gun & thanks for showing them to us...
Sam, thanks for posting that picture, hope my grips age as "gracefully". Those look better than my new ones! I have a SS ejector rod on my blued .44 Special Flat-top, also, as well as a SS Belt Mountain base pin and base pin latch. You Blackhawk is very special, also.
