For once silver just might be better than gold. I'm exceptionally pleased how this pair turned out. Jim @ Nutmeg went out of his way to make every thing perfect. From hand fitted back strap and hammer profiles to the 1st gen checkering on the hammers. And an good trigger job!   Well worth the amazingly short (by engraver's/custom pistol smith standards) 4 month wait. Even the ivory matches for the pair. Harper's engraving?...exceptional as always. No small feat building this pair of guns 18 months apart.

Just got the 2nd one today.   So haven't shot that one yet.   First one did well enough prior Smiley  Hoping for the best on the 2nd.

The accuracy is total unacceptable.  Please send the revolvers to me, and I'll fix'em.....

WOW, oh WOW!..  Those truly are pieces of art!.  The engraving is awesome, and the ivory just sets it all off.  Thanks for sharing, a great set of Colts!

What a beautiful pair.

I was just admiring his work in the new Guns and Ammo Annual. The cover has a 1911 and a SAA that are both engraved. The article inside is well worth the read.
