Looking forward to seeing picturesI ordered a set of Arizona Custom Grips "aged ivory" grips for my Ruger New Model Blackhawk - they use a material called "Magna-tusk".
The material is not powdered ivory or a veneer over plastic, but rather a solid material and they age it with intense UV light, which is a natural aging but accelerated.
I am interested to see this material, as they state that it can fool even experts - but again, we'll see. They sell on ebay exclusively.
Adding to my recent western kick - I found that Bianchi sells handmade custom gun-belts and holster rigs in the western style, and even have a complete rig called the Gunsmoke that is a replica of what Matt Dillon used in the Gunsmoke series. They aren't cheap, but I am sure they are high quality. Maybe someday!
