Bonehead: for real this time!

IMG_2334.JPG
Guess what was in the mail today? Yup, the Mammoth ivory grips from Boone Trading. The first thing I noticed was how heavy they are at least 50% more than the simulated grips I have. And then on closer inspection you can actually see some grain in the grips and they are sweet. A perfect match with each other. They recommend that you put them on the gun right away and keep them on rather than store them.
Now if I can just find the charcoal for my grill. We're barbecuing tonight baby.

Very nice indeed. Did the literature happen to mention the approximate age of the ivory? Would be sort of neat to know.

Funny to imagine that that ivory was wandering about on it's host thousands of years ago, long before firearms were even invented. Now it resides on your nice Colt.

I no sooner posted on the thread when my well guy showed up. But that's for another thread. So anyway he had to go back to the shop to get parts and I just sat down again and haven't had a chance to put them on but pictures are coming. As far as the age goes they could be anywhere between 4500 and 10,000 years old. They are finding mammoth ivory somewhere in Siberia that is estimated to be only 4500 years old. And I don't know exactly where these came from.

It's interesting to note that the ivory grips with the exterior bark are a little more expensive than the ones that I got.

Looking good Cuca, did they say anything about treating them to keep them from drying out? I've been using a light application of mineral oil on mine.
