Old gun, new grips!

Needed new grips for my 1949 Detective Special, and since I stocked up on Alaskan Moose antler last year I spent a pleasant evening dressing the old girl up. Came out nice.

Was the hammer shroud in place when you got the gun, or did you add it later? And, if so, where did you find such a treasure?

It was in place on the gun when I bought it. A buddy did find a shroud on Gunbroker last year.

Fine work, Tinker. Your grips do credit to a find quality revolver...the ultimate in kudos for any set of grips in my opinion. Rod

Unless I'm mistaken, these were cut out of the shovels. …..

I'm jealous. I ended up with a Tyler adapter for my 3 incher.
