I've been looking for original, vintage grips for my Type I Colt 1903 Pocket Hammerless (mfr 1915) for several years. The one's on it when I inherited it were pretty chewed up, and every time I found some for sale they weren't much better, not enough better to pay the asking price, anyway. In the meantime, I put the old grips in the safe and installed some aftermarket "ivory" grips that make it look decent. Today on eBay I found nearly pristine Colt 1903 Pocket Hammerless grips with the bidding at $82.50. I doubled the bid and waited until there were 25 seconds to go, then submitted my bid. I got them for a little under $130. I'm overjoyed. A years long quest is ended.
