Here are pictures of my USFA. This was my first attempt at making Walnut grips and and fitting them to a pistol. I'm in the process of making another set that will fit better.

For a first attempt, those look pretty good!

 :)Rawhide, or anyone that knows, I have a Rodeo II from Longhunter and am getting a 12-22 soon. My question is can I switch the grips? The white ones I just saw on the nickel revolver I just saw look great.

Here's a few new additions I picked up recently, thought you might enjoy. The engraved SAA and 1911 .45 I found used and the Super 38 was on super sale, new.

I have my father's "Civilian" pre-WW-II 1911 Colt in .45 ACP.

There's some features of the original 1911s that I really like.

For my hand the long Trigger and Straight Housing I really like.

The wide, checkered Hammer is nice.

However the original pattern sights leave a LOT to be desired.

Here are some images of my new USFA O.W. Ainsworth, it was ordered on on the 17th of March, and received on the 5th of May.  It is my first U.S. Firearms revolver.  I was interested in owning the earliest version of Colt's New Model Army Metallic Cartridge Revolving Pistol, and this is as close as you can buy in 2010, Colt offers nothing like this.  I apologize for the low quality of the images, I was shooting wide open in low light with no tripod, so the depth-of-field was very shallow.  Anything behind the focus point will be soft.

IT may not be historically correct but I prefer the ivory to the MOB. Must be the Patton in me.

Frank,
Been following your saga here, on the USFA forum board, and at DJ's.  You stated that USFA has no record of you gun, yet it is featured on their own web site.  On the USFA web site go to the "Products" Menu, then select "Custom Shop," then select "Fit & Feel."  Scroll down to the part where they show the gold inlay.  The ivory grips in the picture easily identify the gun as being the one you now own.
