First Custom Ruger Build

Post by iowafilm » Sat Jun 22, 2019 2:49 pm

Hey Guys
I am going to start my first custom built revolver on an old 3 screw Blackhawk.
I think I am going to make a 4" barrel and a birdshead grip. My question is, is it worth it to put ivory on it or should I go with French Walnut or something else?

It will be color-cased and engraved.

Thanks for the help! If anyone has pictures of their custom guns I would love to see them.

I personally think that pretty French is walnut would look good on the color cased gun.
