Questions for Users
(Public)   
    Q:  Most Single Actions during this period had Eagle grips. Are these grips original to the gun or replacements. 02/25/2012
        A:  SINCE COLT STARTED USING HARD RUBBER EAGLE GRIPS AS STANDARD IN 1882, I'M GUESSING THIS GUN ORIGINALLY CAME WITH EAGLE GRIPS AND THESE ARE LATER REPLACEMENTS. 02/25/2012
