This is an Uberti-made single action in 45 (long) colt. It's imported by Taylors & Company. They are very nice pistols for the price, although as you can see from the last photo, the original checkered grip that it comes with has the Taylors logo carved into it. It's a nice grip, but I thought that it was a bit tacky of the importer to do that, to me it really takes away from the authentic old west look. Also, it bears a striking resemblance to Tesla's logo! I had a small scrap piece of walnut that was just big enough and had some nice figure. I used some aftermarket grips as a template and then shaped away little by little. There are two types of grips for these guns the "one piece" and "two piece" The two-piece grips use a screw and special brass grommets to keep the two sides together. I went with the one-piece type, which is actually two pieces that have a small wedge-shaped piece glued in between them that is just thick enough to press against the back strap. I actually made that linking piece too thin and had to glue pieces of walnut veneer to it in order to get the right fit. It's not perfect (a bit too bulky), but it turned out well enough for me to be satisfied. I put two coats of GF Arm-r-Seal then a few coats of spar urethane. I might actually sand it down again to thin it out and put a more natural finish on it. I also eventually like to make my own walnut (or perhaps cherry) gun stock for my 1873 Winchester (clone) lever-action rifle. Anyone else dabble in woodworking with gun stocks/pistol grips?
