I know, I know too much time on my hands. Well I soaked the all so bright
Ivory grips in a strong tea overnight. Took a little of the white out. Put the
letters in. Here's the two, Walnut & Ivory. Well, which do you like ??

No offense, but I don't like Pee Pee on my grips. :p

Talking about Pee Pee...that might make your grips a bit more ivory looking. :eek:

Ivory ... without the letters.
Definately without the letters. :D

I prefer the wood. I associate white grips with a white metal finish(stainless steel or plated). IMHO, ivory grips on a blue/case gun are like a tuxedo with brown shoes.

I like them both!
The ivory looks classy, and the walnut looks utilitarian. Can't decide.

But they don't clash with my brown tuxedo like the black shoes do :D

Ivory - without the letters

I like both the ivory and the walnut - if I had to choose though, I'd go with the ivory! :)

In regards to darkening up the ivory - I really don't have any idea if this would work or not as I don't have any experience with "faux" or synthetic ivory - but - for "aging" powder horns, I use a product called "Old Bones". I don't have a bottle of it handy so can't tell you for sure, but I think it is supposed to be diluted in water to soak the horn in to age it. I've always just applied it straight from the bottle with excellent results. Of course this is on cow horn - as I say, I don't have any idea if or how it would work on "faux ivory". Has anybody ever tried it? If sombody does try it, I'd recommend doing it on the inside of the grip first to see if or what the results would be. Just a thought . . . . . . :) "Old Bones" comes in a small bottle and I'm pretty sure it is available from Track Of The Wolf and probably other dealers as well. As I said, test it on the inside first as I have no idea if it would work or what the resulting color or shade would be. If someone has tried it, I hope you'll post and let us know if it works.

Well right now I got the Ivory soaking in a pouch od "Red Man" tobacco.
mixed with water. It's looking good. Will report back tommorrow.

Won't ivory warp?

I like 'em both!

That ivory is sorta like that T-shirt with the tux on it. Not too formal, but not too casual, either :p

Saw them both in half, glue them to the opposite half, get another of the same gun, use the other halves for that one... then you can just switch the guns to different hips depending on classy or casual wear.

Problem solved..plus you get another gun;)
