Re: Case Colors on SAA Colts

Ist Generation Colt restored by Cosby Custom Guns The Colt stays pretty much in the safe these days so case colors are still bright. The USFA gets quite a bit of use. It's holding up well but I know that won't last. And it's OK. Jim, what's the grip material on the Colt? And Merry Christmas! :)

It has been suggested to me that big, solid heavy guys feel the recoil more than lighter, skinnier guys like me, because their mass absorbs most of the recoil but it just knocks me back a bit. Experience seems to support this theory.
