Default New shoes for my 686

Just added a pair of American Holly grips (look similar to bone at a fraction of the cost) from Texas Grips with a a BK grip adapter...really liking the look and feel so I'm probably going to keep this setup...

Looks good on your gun.Does holly not show grain or just bleached out?

Thanks... the grain is very light and yellowish in color. I'll try to post some close ups tomorrow.

Nice. Thar's a humdinger of a revolver.

If the grip adapter is aluminum I'd remove the finish, buff the bare aluminum to closely match the stainless, and then clear coat it.

Best Regards,

Looks really good, clean lines. Speaking of lines, the only thing missing is a more pronounced turn line due to lack of shooting.

I have the Talo 686+ 3" and love it. Great guns for sure.

The trademark was very light/barely noticeable before bead blasting so it's basically gone now.
