Colt started using black plastic grips on their single actions back in the 1800's.

I believe they were hard rubber. I don't think plastic existed back then.

True, they were hard rubber made from Gutta Percha up thru the end of the 1st Gen SAAs, at the beginning of WWII.

And beginning in the 1950s Ruger used Black butaprene-rubber checkered grips.

You are correct. My point is that the Wranglers plastic grips do not seem "cheap" ....they seem natural.
