I bought some bonded ivories for a Ruger SBH, and they blew to pieces during the first range trip! Nutmeg Sports has genuine old stock Colt Walnuts at an unbeatable price. I put them on my Hoag Mastergrade.I bought a pair of bonded ivory grips with the Colt medallions from Altamont. When I got them, they were white as snow but they have turned to a, well, an ivory color. Those grips look good. I'm trying to come up with some grips that would look right on a stainless Springfield MilSpec.
