Those might not be aftermarket grips. Those and the gold infilling might have been part of a presentation type package for a distributor. I'd ask over on the Colt Forum. Those guys would know for sure.
I still think the Gold infilling looks nice.
That is one fine looking gun.
For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
