Yes they are one piece, the antique ivory look alike are from Buffalo Brothers, the wood ones are the ones that came with the gun just refinished.

And here is the update with the finished Antiquing process I did. Couldn’t bring myself to touch the color case hardening but it matches. Still might hit the grips again with some leather dye to even out the color a little more. The streaks aren’t as pronounced as the photo shows. I got plenty of new looking guns, wanted something that looked like it was from 1872. View attachment 440601 View attachment 440602
Nice. I like the weathered look and that scabbard is sweet. I’ve made grips for a colt. 2 piece but still tricky to fit. I need to get that one on my permit and out of dad’s basement.

Bought a second generation 7 1/2" Colt New Frontier SAA in .44 special yesterday. It was manufactured in 1964. Colt only made 125 second generation New Frontier SAA revolvers in .44 special. It included Colt wood grips that fit it. It also had a professional trigger job and springs. The action is smooth as butter.

My S frame Model 57. I bought this from a Staff Sergeant when I was stationed at Ft.Hood, Texas. I was all of 19. Paid $150 for it.

This one is my late dad's smoke wagon. Shoots very nice. I like to see peoples face light up when they see it and ask "is it real???" This is a 2nd generation. One of a 120 built in .44 Special. He bought it around '63-4.

As an older guy who bought his first centerfire revolver in 1972 (Mom signed for it) and was issued his first duty revolver in 1977 (colt). I have taken a great liking to S&Ws, here are some I have saved still in my possession.

I'm an Old 18B/Z who just retired in OCT 2020, nice to meet a fellow SF Brother! That last S&W with the SF Patch is awesome. Nice collection of S&Ws.

This is my grandfather's 'gambling gun', a Colt 32-20 WCF Police Positive Special. My dad was born upstairs in a saloon, his dad being a somewhat notorious gambler and bootlegger. The grips are both cracked at the butt from him using it to bang on people's doors when out collecting debts.
