That is one fine piece of hardware.  I lost about 10 minutes staring at the pictures.

Picked this up a couple weeks ago.  Wish it would warm up enough to go try it out.

This is my GW2 in .45 Colt with Tru-Ivory Grips and the 1860 Colt Grip frame

   
This set up has my EMF Dakota,(Jaeger), also in .45 Colt with Tru-Ivory grips on an 1860 Colt Army Frame.


Listen!  Do you hear that?  The roar of Cannons and the screams of the dying.  Ahh!  Music to my ears.

Grapeshot,
A pair of handsome pistols.  You are right to be proud. 

I prefer Army grips as well, I'm curious, do you have large hands?

Regards,

This is my primary black powder double.  It's a Rossi 12 gauge I bought back in 1983.  It has seen a lot of action and still locks up tighter than a drum.

Don't know if I posted this before, but I pulled this used rifle off of layaway just in time to put it under the Christmas Tree ... and Walks Under Buffalo has graciously offered to teach me about Black Powder so that I don't do somehing REALLY stupid with it the first time .... and I am going to take my  ROAs out at the same time ....
