    I believe those are Box Elder Burl. (Stabilized) I got the wood already stabilized. Guy does good stuff. I'd like to get a bunch more of it when the piggy bank is full enough.

    Nice people on this forum.

    On another note,
    Now, I are a cowboy.

    Picked up this to mate with my Uberti 1873 lever gun. Both in .357

    Very nice grips.
    I only own one 1911 (Dan Wesson SS V-Bob 45)
    But those guns have something special about them.
    May need to add more sometime...

    They are great little guns but with the short barrel comes a short ejection rod which requires special attention when pulling the base pin as well as ejecting spent cases.
    The lower and wider Bisley hammer gives you a sight picture with the hammer down as well as faster follow-up shots because the hammer is much easier to grab.
    I have been through a half dozen SA Rugers in a variety of calibers. All of them great shooters but with their tall sharp hammers a PIA to cock so I sold them and moved on.

    Mine shown above is made for mounted shooters so it has the wider hammer and came with a short stroke kit installed so it fits my needs perfectly. Those Italians make really nice replicas and the tolerances on this gun are perfect. They have also figured a way to have the firing pin retract without a transfer back so loading six is a safe option. I would have gone with a Colt but my fear was passing on a gun that if loaded incorrectly was a time bomb for anyone not understanding the relationship between a firing pin and a chambered round. Hickock45 graphicly demonstrates that with wooden rod striking the hammer on a Colt or replica without Uberti's hammer safety feature.

    Two of my favorites. Think I was born a thumb buster.
    An Uberti 45 Colt similar to your desire, and a 45ACP Ruger. I like the feel and weight of the Uberti, like the old Colts, but the Ruger while a bit heavier is fun to shoot and I got way more ACP than 45 Colt.

    Cool Magnum Force

    When we talk revolvers this is my most accurate Wamma Jamma

    But for a 3" 357?
    Ejects and loads rounds like a boss...
    Those are Jet Loaders BTW
