a couple weeks back I picked up a Ruger flat top 44spl. before long I was in love (well, except for the stainless hammer and trigger!) the fit and finish are perfect, the action was pretty smooth and the BC gap is almost non existent. I haven't had a chance test it on paper yet, just steel. but so far I couldn't be happier.





after a while I decided it needed a good set of stocks and a holster. first I dug through my Ivory box and found two pieces that were wide enough and then set about fitting them to the grip frame. the left side came from a large outer cutoff that was part of a tusk I worked with a while back. most grip makers would probably have called it junk and scraped it since it was cracked at the top but these stocks will see a lot of use so I didn't mind the cracks. it's just character. I did fill the cracks with clear Epoxy so they won't get any worse though.



















after fitting the stocks I started on the Holster. this is the second one I've made and while it turned out better than the first I still need some practice. it's Threepersons style I took from Will Ghormley's 1911 pattern. interestingly the dye I used on the holster was Tapadera's N-35 gunstock stain. it's meant to replicate the color used on vintage Winchester Rifle stocks.

I couldn't decide which picture I liked the best so y'all will have to see them all lol.

I think it looks awesome. To pick a photo, I like the fence post with holster and carbine.

Very nice work on the grips and holster. .44 Special is a great round.

ONly thing I see is that carbine needs to be a 44 as well. Just something about matching caliber sets.

well I've always been partial to a 30-30 but I must say a large lever 92 in 44mag would go real well with this flat top.

Very nice work! I have a 94 in .44 that is a constant companion. I've owned several Blackhawks, but nothing like that.
