I just aquired am EAA Bounty Hunter and would love to find a set of Imitation Stag Grips. Does anyone know of a company that offers these type grips? I have seen the names like "Durastag" and Stagalon but I do not know where I could obtain these. Any companies supplying these would be helpful.
Thanks

Howdy,

Grip Maker and Get A Grip both carry grips for SAA clones like the Bounty Hunter. Grip Maker has the imitation stag,but take a look at both sites,as they have a nice selection of grips.

The Grip Maker is a one man operation and a very capable operation at that. He lives only twenty minutes from me and I am using some of his imitation ivory grips right now.
Personally I detest imitation stag. Almost all of it looks like cheap plastic. His on the other hand look like the real thing. He has put a reat deal time and work into making the grain, testure and coloring as athentic as possible.
I am about to start building a pair of guns for Terri to use for mounted shooting. She loves the looks of stag and I had planned to get the real things for 90 bucks a pop from Ajax. Then after seeing the Grip Makers imitation they will be what goes on her pistolas.
As Bill said check out the other site as well. You may see something you like even better than stag. Different people like different things. Shot, I even have one set of guns with white pearls on them. But don't tell anyone, ok?

Howdy GS,

$90 a pair for real stag sounds like a bargain. Last I heard,India had ceased exporting Sanibar stag,and the price had been driven up to about $150 a pair. I have nice pair of stag grips on my Vaquero-I wish I could get stag for my Remingtons.

I also recommend www.gripmaker.com
Larry is a great guy and supporter of cowboy action shooting. Go to his web page, he has got not only imitaton stag but other great grips. So many great grips you won't know which to pick. His email is info@gripmaker.com

Bill, the last I lookedd Ajax had genuiine stag for $89 a set. But it has been a while since I paid any real attention.

Shhhhhhh......I said not tell anyone. LMAO

saintdavid, chances are they will come in threee pieces. The two side panels and a middle spacer. Once you get the side panels fitted it is a matter of simply using an adhesive to bond the three pieces together. I recommend "Gorilla Glue" but any good quality two part epoxy will do. I put thin clear tape on the on the exposed surfaces just in case I accidently get any excess adhesive on exposed surfaces. Once everything has had time to properly set I then use a razor to remove the tape.
