Chuck and I haven't discussed originality, but the original grips seem to have been trashed for or made into some kind of hand carved grips that I have not seen. I think even the carved grips have been lost. Maybe a Fitz gun is a gun that has lost its original grips and had them replaced with Fitz grips. How did I do? I have seen and photographed the gun and all metal is original. Stay tuned.
Typically when I see someone online say a gun has been Fitz'd, they are referring to the front of the trigger guard being cut out.

I only have one "Fitz'd" gun, which I purchased for next to no money and I enjoy because of that, and by what a hilarious wreck it is:

It does however illustrate what I mean by the trigger guard being cut away, as Fitz liked to do.
