Howdy,

For awhile now,I've been searching for aftermarket grips for my Uberti 1875 Remingtons. Yesterday,I found not one,but two places that carry some really neat grips for all types of CAS pistols. The first,Grip Maker,has many different varieties of the carved faux ivory grips with eagles,steer heads,and various other Old West designs. The second,Get A Grip,carries some excellent looking faux ivory,and the owner is also a schrimshaw artist,and the examples of her work are very cool. She can do just about any design you want,apparently,and the prices are reasonable. I've got a pair on order from both places,so I'll let you know how they work out.

Bellicose Bill

Thanks for the post, Bill, interesting grips. I've got sanbar stag on my Vaqueros Bisleys. The wife's Colts have got the hard rubber eagle grips. Grips help make the personal statement on a revolver. With that said, I liked the grips with the Saloon Girl on them.

The Grip Maker is just down the road from me and I've spoken with him a few times at some of the local gun shows, although I've never actually seen any of his work.
Anyone needing any help and/or info that I may be able to help with being local please feel free to let me know.
