Colts with stag grips. Here’s three double actions. A cut down 1917 .45 ACP, a 1903 .41 with factory 3" barrel, and a 1952 Colt Cobra .38 Special.

That is a very nice three screw and it looks to be in excellent condition. I have a three screw in .30 carbine that was made around 1973 I think. It's not really beat up but it just looks more used than yours. I really need a Blackhawk in .357 magnum.

The pics came out fine and yes, you are fortunate and your son will be fortunate some day as well.
That's a fancy gun rug but nothing's too good for a revolver like that.

Okay, as someone who likes stag grips, I am officially envious.

Believe it or not I found the gun rug on Etsy. 85 bucks hand made and a perfect match for the 28. If you dig around, have fun and you may just find some really great firearms related things…And thank you for the compliment!

I used to go on Etsy to look up prices for collectible glassware and I was happy to see gun related items like holsters and grips. I almost bought a set of 1911 stag grips there but I found a better deal on ebay.
Now I'm trying to figure out which one of my guns needs a fancy gun rug.

in the 1980s stag grips only cost $35-$40 and they of course did not get the attention ivory grips got. stag was just taken for granted until India banned their importation then everyone wanted them. Luckily I still have a bunch from thirty plus years ago.

Sometime back in the 90s I found a couple of sets of stag grips on a "clearance" rack. They were made by a company called Ajax Grips and I only paid around $50 for them. Unfortunately there were only two sets and I have three Blackhawks.

.30 carbine


.41 magnum


The .45 Colt/.45 ACP didn't get any stag grips

Great stags! An Ajax dealer had a regular table for years at the Cal Expo gun shows in the 90s. Piles of new stags. They were an excellent company. Speaking of Rugers, my nephew bought a SBHawk a few years ago and gave me the stags on them as he preferred the rubber Pachs. I just recently shot my gun with those stags on them and found that the abrasive bark did not bother me at all in recoil. In fact the bark patterns were more perfect for a left hander like me. Here's that 1969 .44 with my circa 1962 Single six .22 mag. My dad loved this gun. It's so cool to see your sixguns and appreciation for stag grips.

Your nephew's loss was your gain when it comes to those grips. My Blackhawks are more comfortable to shoot with the stags because they are rounded off in the front just behind the trigger guard. The stock wood grips are squared off in that area and will make the inside of your fingers sore after a lot of hotter loads like the .41 magnum.
I gave my Single Six to my oldest grandson. He's my first born grandchild and he really wanted it so I gave in. My daughter is keeping it in her safe until he gets his FSC.

A few days ago I ordered some imitation stag grips for the third Blackhawk and they arrived today. They are from Arizona Custom Grips and are made from something called Magna-Tusk. They look fine for $80.

Yeah, I noticed the condition of that three screw right away. It's a looker for sure.
I like .45 Colt in revolvers and .45 ACP in pistols so as soon as I saw the 7 1/2" Blackhawk convertible at Martin Redding I bought it. As mentioned, I really need a Blackhawk in .357 magnum but I might look for an older one first. I need to drop off a couple of guitars in Culver City so I'll stop at Martin Redding and see if they still carry a lot of used revolvers. I bought four or five there back in the nineties.

Oh, I forgot to comment on that very nice three screw .45 Convertible. Whoever owned that one really took care of it.

I'll make up my mind sooner or later. After ordering the imitation stag grips for the Blackhawk I realized they make them with the Ruger medallion. So...



I will put the grips without the medallion on my grandson's Single Six.
