Hootmix,

The ones I have on mine are from Gripmaker. They started out bright white and have yellowed to the color you see in my post on the first page of this thread. If you can spend a bit more, True Ivory looks great.

I have a couple of Colt Second Generation 1860s being converted by Raven. I just sold my extra Colt Python to a friend, so I'm thinking that I may splurge and go to Nutmeg Sports for real ivory for them.

I'll have to think about it. I want to get a hammered double and I may put up my spare open top with the Man with No Name barrel and the 5 1/2 barrel for sell or trade.

I just fitted the new 7 inch barrel to the top OP in 38sp.

Very pleased it is now a good shooter.

I just need the Richards Mason and a Richards Type1. Forgot the Thuer but that may never happen.

Couple shots of my Cimarron .44Colt with one piece TruIvory. This is one of my favorite sixguns that gets carried and shot quite often. No leather pics for some dumb reason.

Here's an update on mine.

"I bought this sixgun several years ago, just before moving to Tennessee. Tom Selleck's westerns had gotten me hot over topless Colt's and Crossfire Trail, made before new replicas were available, was particularly instrumental in my procuring this .44Colt. Did a little slicking of the action, ordered a basket-stamped 1849 Californian from El Paso Saddlery, had it fitted with one-piece TruIvory and proceeded to really get attached to it. Carried it over hill `n dale and packed it near about every hunting season. Things have been going very well for me and I always wanted to have a sixgun engraved. Members here had posted pics of Michael Gouse's work and I was very impressed. I decided to finally have one done and contacted him back in July. Sent it to him in August with instructions to forward it to Turnbull for finish work and got it back today. I don't think I ever waited less than six months for a custom gun so 6wks was quite a pleasant surprise on this one.

It is done in American scroll with 75% coverage. I asked for a sunburst on the recoil shield which I believe is a style popularized by factory Colt engraver Cuno Helfricht. It was finished by Turnbull in full carbona blue with a color case hardened hammer & trigger and nitre blued screws. Words cannot express how happy I am with it. If you've ever dreamed of having one of your guns engraved, I would highly suggest contacting Michael Gouse and making it happen. Life is too short!"

Craig, it is a keeper!  The straw colors on the hammer and trigger are really eyecatching.  May have to ship my Richards out for some engraving.
