DC, unfortunately the S&B is one of the few replicas I don't have (yet)

Here you go dc7x64. I try to post newer pics on these types of threads, but have none that are current, so I will show you three pics of mine that were taken a year ago right after I got it and did a refinish and polish job on it. There is a bit of streaking that shows up on the blue in these pics that is from from a fresh coat of bear oil that was applied right before I took these pics. Every metal part has been reblued including all screws and all stamping removed from the bbl. and frame except for the Navy Arms address on the top bbl. flat. I have not gotten around to refinishing the grips yet. Been messing around with too many other revolvers. The brass is now stained and tarnished from use.

I own TWO of them..... The SS '44 and a blued .36.  I also own two Ruger Old Armies - for investment purposes only though.

Dittos on the photo skills Scooby.

I just noticed the wood to metal profile is identical to the 1858 Remington. Are the actual grips interchangeable?

There is just enough difference , (that is on my two examples ) to say no not interchangeable,

but that is not fair as the S&B is a Pietta  and the Remy is a Uberti Forge Frame Conversion circa  both date coded 2008.

Edit, in a further investigation, I went to VTI's parts page where they list two different part number's and price points for the
Pietta Remy VS Pietta R&B grip panels.
Not perhaps scientific, like actually trying ... but if some one has a spare set of Pietta Remy 58 / NMA 63 grips panels to send, I'll be glad to see how close.

First time stumbling on this thread. Doesn't Fingers have the best collection of cap and ball revolvers in the World?

I do believe, and Fingers can correct or verify, that Dr Davis has about the largest collection of replica C&B revolves extant.
