Grandpa's Colt. I've had it for several decades. The grips that were on it when I got it were... awful. They were walnut, but didn't fit the frame well. I wonder if they were actually made for some other revolver! And they were HUGE. So... Off they went, as soon as I found a set of grips that fit. Those were Pachmayer rubber grips, and they worked fine, but didn't do the old Colt justice.

As of today, it's got a set of reproduction grips from Altamont! Love 'em. They fit almost perfectly, I need to do just a wee bit of fitting. It's nice to see the old revolver looking good with appropriate grips.










Anyone know where I can get a lanyard ring that fits?

Thanks, Guy

Nothing is more fun than an old school, big bore revolver. Single action or double action, .44 or .45, doesn't matter, just cool.

My brother got an old Colt like yours not long ago. He is a much better hand with a pistol than I am and has some high grade ones, but loves that old Colt. Wish I had one. Nice that yours has family history for you.

kosh75287, I had one of those back in my younger and even stupider days. They or the big colt in pretty good shape went for $25.00 all day at local gun shows.
Mine was stamped .455 on the barrel, was a .45ACP and used half moon clips. Looking back I assume if one cast to fit the bore it would have been a lot more accurate.

Looks great with those grips. I like the old Colts but you never come
across them anymore as Rex mentioned.
