I think the Sig is more of a copy of the Mauser HSc rather than the Walther.
When I picked up my Delta Elite it had rubber stocks on it and I just was not a fan of them. I ordered this set of stag sticks with the Delta medals from a guy in Texas. They are really comfortable and i think pretty eye catching.
Was miles from civilization (and a computer) this afternoon, hiking and doing chores on our old family place on the lake and totin' my own Colt Delta Elite near the time you posted the photograph of your Delta Elite, Waltesefalcon.
Was grateful to have it on this occasion. Feral hogs have prominently moved into our place, their sign amply visible covering acres and acres near the lake shore. Looked like a rotor-tiller convention!
I too could not abide the factory rubber stocks. Picked up some Delta Elite medallions from off of Ebay. Altamont was kind enough to custom fit them to some of their stocks which caught my eye.
The factory rubber stocks neither looked appealing nor helped the handling characteristics of the pistol. The pistol doesn't require rubber stocks to soak up recoil which isn't any worse than a good heavy .45 ACP 230 grain load.
Noelekal, I had just taken mine off after a hike at the lake when I took the photo, I like your choice of leather. Are your stocks cherry or just dark stained?
I agree, those factory rubber stocks do nothing for the handling of the gun, my .45 acp has pretty much an identical kick to the 10mm; these stag grips fit my hand about the same as the factory ones on my .45 so I am a happy camper with them.

Rosewood is what I'm recalling.
Those are nice.
Just in case you haven't seen this...
The competition Bob was competing in, End of Trail, is the championship match for the Single Action Shooting Society. I just started going to these matches, and I am nowhere near this guys level, probably never will be. But Bob is a legend in the sport for sure.
I've read that his SAA revolvers were modified by re-theading the frames for larger diameter hardened grip frame screws. He moved so fast that regular screws would break and leaving him holding the grip while the revolver remained in the holster.
I think these two go well together!
Good morning Mr. Bond.
Maybe I need to find a old Russian watch to go with my 1915 Nagant.
Very nice 1895. Fascinating the gas seal system and ammunition for these.
Harrison did this for me yrs ago, just found the pics he sent before mailing it back
I can’t tell for sure because it’s been about forty years since I had one, but is this a Mauser HSC?
Yes sir. I inherited it a few months ago, didn’t think I would like it but it’s a keeper.
Yeah... I really liked mine. Who knows why I got rid of it. Likely I traded it off for another toy.
