You might try Ebay for some Taylor extended grips for Ruger Black hawk or Old Army, wood and extended like your Hogue. They do require a bit of fitting.
The NICs check is a form of registration, supposed to be destroyed after a few yrs, but with computers, they are registered forever....
That form stays with the seller. Not a federal registration.
what is the miniature revolver pin on the side of your loading stand?
Isn't it funny how they know exactly where a gun came from before the victim's blood is dry?
A trio of Old Armies. The blued is an 81 the two stainless late 90’s. The conversion cylinder is 45ACP and is interchangeable with either of the three. A testament to Rugers quality control. Adjustable sights on all. A forth in stainless permanently fitted out with 45C cylinder and Belt Mountain base pin and base pin retainer stays at the southern home. Shooters all.
Sorry to say local LGS owner said feds recently scanned all his 4473's going back decades. This was in conjunction with being robbed and took days to scan them all. Not sure what happens to NICS checks info. The question begs how long it would take to crosscheck 4473s with credit card purchases at pot shops?
That was an Ebay find while looking for gun tie tacs...
two Ruger Old Armys-one in blue with a brass frame and one ing stainless. Both are essentially A.N.I.B. I am "working" on a third (5 1/2" barrel in polished stainless with the non-adjustible "receiver groove" in lieu of sights (also N.I.B.). It is my intent to have them all "papered" by Ruger. I will post pictures as soon as I get my I-phone to "speak" to my Apple desktop!
I have a few in stainless and blue, have my eyes open for a 5.5” fixed sight to convert. The dragoon grip is the only one for me…
In 2019 I found the one pictured below on Gun Broker. New old stock with a buy now price of $650. I jumped on it without hesitation. It is probably my favorite gun. I guess sometimes you have to lose something, or give it away, before you can really appreciate it.
A really cool side note. The grip panels are from my first ROA.
Those 5.5” stainless ROA’s are absolutely beautiful. I fondled one at a gun show back in, I think, 2007. Guy was asking $550 for it NIB. I kick myself every time I think about it.
$550 14 years ago had a whole lot of buying power compared to now. IMO that revolver was vastly overpriced at the time.
The only problem is.... it's unfired. No box or wrench. I was expecting a used one to shoot and rough house with. Now I'll have to decide to salt it away or just shoot it.
Yes, OK - I'll try upping the charge a bit. I'm not too keen to change the projectiles though as I have too many of them to use up!
