New Bulldog Grips

Well as many know I picked this Charter Arms Bulldog .44spl up a while back, nice little cannon already had a old blue version. The factory black rubber grips are very functional but kind of blah. I think I like the Silverblack the best on the Bulldog. I did put the checkered on but did not take a picture. I will use it possibly on another pistol I have coming inbound.

Those look great Arland...

They kinda remind me of the color of the grips on your Ruger Vaquero 45..

Yeah, they kind of have that feel, of course the Vaquero is solid black and without finger grooves. I don't think they will effect the recoil much for me.

Hmmm, chit now I will have to look next time I have the safe open.

Crap made me look! You are correct! Both of mine are just like yours and almost exactly like the Silverblack grips on the Bulldog.

Nice grips Arland, I like the silverblack better but the rosewood aren't bad looking either.

Thanks! The silverblack was my first choice. The more I looked I kind of liked the rosewood also. When I saw the prices were pretty good I decided to get both, the silverblack are $40.00 and the checkered rosewood were $50.00 shipping was only $6.55 so it was only the right thing to do was buy both. I will get a gun later to put the rosewood grips on.
