Do gold Tyler T-Grips look garish?

    I'm about to order a couple Tyler T-grips to go with the stock wooden grips on a few older S&W revolvers.

    I have an inexpensive 10-6 that I picked up, and I'm tempted to put a gold Tyler T-grip on it. Would that look really cheesy, or does anyone think that blued/wood/gold looks good?

    Tyler makes gold grips, so somebody must be buying them. Anyone have any good pics with a gold Tyler T?

    Not if it matches your gold front tooth, put some pearl handled grips on the gun too.:evil:

    Gives new meaning to the phrase "Pimp my Gun".

    Just kidding (well almost just kidding).

    Yes - but that's pure opinion. I use black on both blued and stainless revolvers.

    I'm in the process of purchasing a couple of Tyler T's for a couple of stainless K Frames and I'm having a difficult choice between polished and black. Haven't even considered gold. I mean no offense but, I'd choose gold only if I was running a string of girls in New Orleans or Vegas....Essex

    I have a stainless on my 64 .38. It goes well. In reality, tho, your adversary will not see the t-grip if you aren't "made" as carrying. Once it's out, the last thing going through his mind should be a 129(?) gr. hydra shok.:what:

    Gold anything on a gun looks garish.

    I always liked the gold trigger on a Marlin 39A.

    And I like nice gold inlays.
    And gold stock medallions.

    I also usually gold (or silver) fill the rollmarks on my blued guns.

    A little gold can be nice. But not large pieces.

    Unless the entire gun is gold. ;) ANd then only certain guns.
    I remember a photo, Years Ago™, of a pair of engraved, gold plated Rodgers & Spencer revolvers from the 1860s that was just plain stylish.
