Default Roper grips

Sixgun Strumpet;
The Exquisite Roper grips that you picture in your post #21, bring tears to my eyes. They show what I would consider a perfect example of, top of the line custom grips used in the era of bullseye competition that I competed in. They are just beautiful in their well used, good condition, and are a part of history. Give them a coat of Renaissance wax, consider yourself very fortunate, and never part with them. Thanks for sharing them with us.

Will do.

One additional thing that is somewhat amusing to me about them is that they appear to have been chewed on by either a toddler, or a pet. Not sure which.

Overall though they do make me a bit sad that I wasn't around when I could order such a set new for myself. It's wonderful to be able to dig up the old ones, but I can't help but feel I missed out on some pretty special times.
