    Hi Folks,
    I'm just curious, does anyone put ivory grips on a stainless gun? I'm thinking about putting ivory on my stainless NHC.
    Thanks,
    C

    Yes Ivory looks good on stainless or any other color gun.
    I'd like to have another set to put on for long term shooting as I would be afraid to damage a $400+ set of Ivory.

    I've tried rattlesnake skin grips, and they're cool looking, but weren't as great for positive grip, to me anyway.
    I will say I'd bet alligator or croc skin would be interesting... Even if the grips got dings or scuffed up it'd just result in better traction... A matching holster would be a pretty cool setup!

    Grips that match my boots.
    Gawd, I wish I hadn't seen this.

    In theory I'd say NO on Ivory/SS- something with more contrast would be more to my liking.

    However- what I've see here causes me to realize that ain't necessarily so.
    Nice pistols gents.

    Ivory looks good on just about any finish. Beautiful guns, gentlemen.
