Buffalo Horn grips

Is anyone familiar with buffalo hor grips? How durable are they? I am begining to really like the looks of them and I am think of getting a pair for my
.357 black hawk or my Single Six. I would hate to gets some and have them crack or break.

Thanks

They hold up as well or better than most natural materials.

re: buffalo horn stocks

T.J.
I've never used buffalo horn as stocks material before but I can't help but believe that if you get them from a quality place like

http://www.eaglegrips.com , I think you will be satisfied with not only their product but also their customer service, as I have been.

I had Brian Neely of Klamath River Woodworks put a one piece grip of buffalo horn on a USFA Rodeo II. That has the satin nickel finish and the horn looks real good. I have no reason to question the durablity, but if installed correctly should stand up as well as anything else. Brian has made/installed several grips for me of various materials on other USFA models and does nice work.

Buffalo horn that has not been properly dried will crack.
But, I have to believe a well known manufacturer would know that and dry the horn material he uses before making the grips.
They can be pretty.
