Price check on ivory grips
Just saw a gorgeous pair of grips for the 1911 made from 80 years old elephant ivory with gold Colt medalions. Grips have so-called tiger stripes which match on both sides. Seller is asking for 250. Is this the going price?
This seller is telling me that he has two pairs on his SAA and he used both of them in competition. So, I guess they're quite durable.
I have been considering getting a pair for the gun I am about to customize and I too was wondering if they were durable enough to carry everyday? Where should I go to look for them? Any thing I should look for?
No "dress" Commander is complete without ivory! As a stock material, ivory is more fragile than wood. It also has a tendency to "check" with age and will also yellow some. Don't know about solvents affects as at $200/pair I take mine off during cleaning. Would love to have a diamond checkered set!!
