At gun shows and even some gun retailers you will find "junk boxes" with old cast off, damaged or mis-matched stocks. I sometimes buy these if the are cheap enough (as they often are) to salvage the screws and medallions.

If you have real Colt grips, on a real Colt gun?
Changing the medalions to something else could knock several big ones off the collector or resale value of the gun.

I should have done a better job and explained that I usually use the salvaged medallions to repair or referbish older Colt stocks to use on Colt handguns that have non-factory grips. Do the same with S&W and Ruger also.
