    Default Handles?

    Can you still buy real pearl ivory handles for revolvers?

    (mother of)Pearl and ivory are two different things.


    You can still get the mother of pearl grips. Legal ivory grips are rare, but sometimes you can get them. ....Expect to pay a bit more for them.

    Synthetics of either are available.

    Get ivory grips! Only a pimp from a cheap New Orleans whorehouse would carry a pearl-handled pistol!

    Amen Brother! Also if doing ivory, understated is better than garish. That too looks bordello-ish.

    Looks good, I assume they give you paperwork with those?

    Just wondering so if the OP finds a set elsewhere and they don't come with papers he should be leery.

    Having illegal ivory is a pretty big deal and I'd want to be sure I was covered.
    No participation trophies 'round here...

    As knight pointed out,,,,,, OH yeah,,, and I keep it in my safe, scanned it and keep it in three different computers and on a jump drive. Not to mention 2 hard copies.

    They were one of my Christmas presents to me.

    This pistol is becoming a shooter and maybe an EDC, if it works as well as it has for the first 50 shots.

    Nutmeg Sports has some fascinating and beautiful grips and engraving. A fun site to look at and although expensive, quality workmanship.

    Now THAT'S classy without being ostentatiously tacky! Nice overall effect with the dark blue finish and the ivory. Good job!
