Here are some images of a USFA Cowboy I am planning to list for sale soon.  I don't believe this is the normal configuration of a CB pistol, so I was looking for information that would help me with an honest description.  Like what is unusual about this one, do I say "stags" or "antler", etc.  Thanks for any insight.

Your revolver looks to be a former all USA parts Cowboy but it looks to have been converted to a premium SA revolver. I believe all Cowboys models were all dome blue and no CC. Apparently yours has been redone since it now has a CC frame and hammer and of course the original black plastic stocks have been replaced with stag or antler. I do not believe it to now be an original Cowboy model but a nicely converted USFA Cowboy. I do not know if it was changed at the factory or had a custom redo by someone like Turnbull.

Do you have the original box and if so what does the end label say?

Someone more knowledgeable than me should chime in soon.

No box - took a chance on a gunbroker auction with poor images.  The hand spring was broken when it arrived, but after replacing the spring, the gun is a dandy shooter.  I wish I could afford to keep some of these pistols, as I would keep this one.  I feel like I just rent them awhile - but, it is better than never getting to hold one at all.   Thank you for the reply.

Really nice six gun Joel.  I'd be the grips are Patrick Grashorn's 2 piece Elk atler.  Nice grips.
All American made gun that has been refinished to a higher standard than a factory Cowboy model.  Likely done after leaving USFA.
Good luck on your sell.

Yahoody -the grips were listed as Grasshorn grips when I bought the gun - I think I will simply call them Elk Horn.  There is a smudged stamp on the inside of one grip, but I cannot make out any of the letters - looks like black blotches of ink.  The replaced hand spring came from you, but you probably already knew that.  It fit perfect.  I'm going to shoot it a bit more before I sell it.  Thanks for the message.
