I had a pleasant surprise this week. A couple of years ago I picked up a 1907 Colt Bisley. It was well used with little finish remaining but the worst part was that one grip had a large chip out of it.
On the Colt Forum I was given the name of a guy, Don Furr, who could repair the grip but I was skeptical about how that would look. I looked at replacement grips but original ones were expensive plus both the original grips were serial numbered to the gun. A couple of weeks ago I mailed the grips to Don and they came back this week. I was shocked. There is no evidence of a repair on the outside or inside. I have no idea how he was able to match the color like he did. This was about the best $65 I've ever spent. If anybody has a grip needing repair I highly recommend him.
That is impressive - I have a friend who lives in Martin TN - Ron Neely who can fix wood like that, works on high dollar stuff and is a stock maker. ...………. I can fix stuff where it is very strong - but it looks like I fixed it LOL.
