Mammoth & Walrus Ivory Pistol Grips
This ivory is at least 10, years old, and we use only the best quality to insure that they are as tough as modern elephant ivory but with the magic that only extinct prehistoric furry elephant ivory has.
We mostly show the - 45 auto style grips, but we also make revolver grips and other auto grips, please inquire. We make grips from the interior ivory with varying amounts of color and grain, and we make grips from the outer bark layer where the color and texture range from brown to blue green. This ivory predates the Marine Mammal Protection Act and is legal for non-natives us to work with.
We buy this ivory when available from individuals, aging collectors and inheritors in the lower 48 states, one or two tusks at a time; it does not come from Alaska. To comply with state laws we no longer ship any ivory to New Jersey addresses and no mammoth ivory only walrus ivory to New York addresses. No fitting required with the right butt-cut, just take off your old grips and put ours on! If you have an ambidextrous safety; this will require in-letting on the back of the right panel, just check the ambi-box yes.

Again, this article is for entertainment purposes only! If you read my articles you know that I am a Ruger single-action man with Vaqueros, Blackhawks, and Single Sixes in my collection, and I have many articles on how to modify and improve the Ruger platform.
Having never owned or worked on this style of revolver I decided I needed to learn more about them. Although somewhat improved, this same gun is still available today, now called the model. The price was very reasonable then, and years later the price was still reasonable, so I purchased two of them in.
The price was so reasonable I could purchase two of these Italian Colt clones for about the same price as one Ruger Vaquero! Personally I had no problem purchasing an Italian clone. Overall Assessment. Diagrams courtesy F. After the guns arrived I carefully examined them and gave them a thorough cleaning. These guns are within six serial numbers of each other so from now on I will refer to them as gun 85 and gun I was a little disappointed that these were not faithful reproductions of the Colt SAA.
They did not have the first safety notch click when cocking the hammer because they came with a transfer-bar safety similar to a Ruger. This meant I could safely load all six chambers and not worry about having a hammer-mounted firing pin rest on a live primer. The firing pin was mounted in the frame and not on the hammer. Also, instead of having a flat hand spring like an original Colt they had a coil spring and plunger again similar to a Ruger.
Pietta made safety and reliability improvements to the old pattern by using a transfer bar and coil spring and plunger for the hand. The finish was matte blue; they feel almost like they were Parkerized.

The action of each revolver, being brand new, was stiff and the triggers broke at 2. However, the trigger pull was long with a lot of creep indicating that the sear ledge on the hammer was too deep.
A reduced power hammer spring should fix this problem. I found a couple of articles on the Internet links below on how to improve the action of a SAA clone, plus I have two books in my library on how to work on these revolvers, so these references were the starting point for my work.
Tools and Parts. Most of the tools, parts and supplies I purchased from Brownells unless otherwise noted. After purchasing the guns I purchased a set of screwdriver bits made specifically for the Colt SAA and clonesa Wolff reduced power bolt and trigger springand a Wolff reduced power hammer spring The screwdriver bits will help prevent me from buggering up the screw heads when disassembling and reassembling the guns, and the reduced power springs will lighten the action and trigger pull.
I have used these excellent stones for many years on many guns; these are some of the best tools I own for stoning gun parts. I had a Ruger Vaquero that would no longer function with a reduced power trigger return spring because the trigger was rubbing against the frame.
I had to open up the cutout in the frame so the trigger would function properly with the reduced power spring. Barrel and Chamber Throat Measurements I slugged the barrel and measured the chamber throats in each gun.Discussion in '. Log in or Sign up. Anybody know anything about Chiappa revolvers? Dec 9, 1.

I bought a Chiappa and 2 month later a friend bought the heritage rough rider.
The fit and finish is superior on the heritage. So are the sights. The chiappa comes "blacked" and the heritage depending on where you buy or order from has many different finishes and grip combinations. They both have several barrel length options.
