That's an 1860 army with a historically inaccurate brass frame. Navies never came in .44.

It's still closer to a 60 army I don't care what they call it.

The grips look like Navy grips to me, a bit shorter than I would expect to see on an 1860 Army. I happen to have a steel framed Armi San Marco "44 cal 1861 Navy" that is basically an 1860 Army with Navy grips which was an original factory Colt option.

If I wig out, whaddaya gonna do about it? Hey, if it's your shooter do with it what you want to make it fit and function how you want it. I find matte black a nice color for sunny days 'cause it cuts the glare. I have 4 Uberti pistole`s that are millennium finish which is a matte black. No blinding glare. Love 'em.

Some of the forums I "was" on -- the purists were a little touchy -- the Mods would always have to step in and squash arguments

"I just put pearl grips on my .45 ACP Luger"



"But its my gun" !

If it's a clone.... you can paint it red, white and blue and it won't bother me.
If it were an original or a Belgium Centaur, I might feel bad about it, but still couldn't do anything.
Have fun with it!
