    Do y'all think a stainless slide/frame go well with ivory or ivory colored grips? Or would they be more suitable to the darker frames/slides? As always, thanks in advance and post 'em if ya got 'em!:thumbs:

    Before someone comes along and says, "Where what ya like on your gun", I'm just curious as to what others like. I can't seem to make up my mind if I like it or not. :)

    I’ve always tended to think ivory looked best on blued / darker guns; however, I’ve seen folks post pics of ivory-stocked stainless pieces that looked quite good.

    Not my piece here, but an example via Google that I think looks pretty nice.

    That finish almost looks more greyish than stainless. Still, a nice looking piece!

    Black controls help to set off the lighter colors. This is bone though

    I like that! My Ruger has the black on stainless like yours. What kind of bone?

    I would prefer Ivory or Bone on a black/blued pistol. Check out pictures on Google and see which you like better

    I like the look and have it on one of my pistols. Real ivory grips from Sarge's grips.

    I like dark colors for stainless.

    Ivory or Bone looks awesome on both Stainless or Blue pistols. Old school traditional...

    I think it looks great on stainless. I've used both elephant ivory, and mammoth ivory.

    Wow, those are some fine examples and I appreciate you folks sharing them here! My Ruger is just stock and not custom so, real ivory might be wasted on it, not to mention out of my price range at the moment. But, VZ grips has some pseudo ivory ones I like and the giraffe bone looks promising.:)

    I prefer it with a blued finish, but ivory looks good on most anything.
