I dont know much about the colt pistols... but how hard are these grips to find? My dad found a set he wanted on Ebay this weekend... they sold for more than he was willing to pay.

I'm wondering if I could find a set and surprise him down the road with. He wants grips with the colt emblem on them which he explained only came on grips included with the actual gun? The only way to get grips is to find ones someone took off? That sound right?

Heres what we bid on... is this price cheap / expensive / about right?

Dallan: Those were the grips you bid on? They are handsome! What was the final price? I'd guess probably around $50.

I bid on a set of grips for my Smith some time ago. I really wanted them, but they went for way over what I was willing to pay. Sad I finally got a set that I like almost as well, for less than what the original set went for, and I like them buuuut.....

You have to ask yourself what it's worth to surprise your dad? A "fair price" will be determined by who else has the big eye for whatever you are bidding on, and how bad he wants it. Fencing
One guy paid about $20 for three poorly-copied pages showing how to make a gillie suit. ROFL I got mine for $2.75, where the emotion wasn't quite as high.

Set your limit, and stick to it. If you miss 3 or 4, you know you need to raise it a bit.
Good Luck.

Hey Dallan, over the past month, I have purchased three sets of custom grips from a place who sells on ebay.
These are top notch quality grips, with a great finish.
I have been in contact with him, and will be getting a set for my S&W 617.

These guys are great to deal with and a heck of a lot cheaper that Eagle Grips.

Here is the info: Gun Grip Guys

Let me know what you find out.

Eric

We bid $75 and lost so it went higher than that... no way to know what the max bid by the other guy was. According to my dad what made these grips special was the Colt Emblem.

Thanks for all the info, I'll keep looking around.

Did you try Colt? Or maybe Brownell's?

Howdy Pard,

You can also get aftermarket grips with colt medalions in them. As far as I know Colt made their wood d frame grips from walnut. I usually see these grips going for 25 to 50 dollars depending on condition. Hope that helps...
