Pa. made hand gun grips

Any one out there either make or know some one who makes custom single action revolver grips? Iwould like to have a set of birds eye maple grips made for a stainless Ruger SBH. I know there are countless shops out there who do this but I would like to buy from some one in good old Pa. Also looking for a Pa. holster maker.
Thanks

This is the one he made for me, and a matching knife sheath. It is a cross draw.

Yes, it is a .45 Colt Blackhawk w/ Bisley grip, it is a limited edition with an engraved cylinder. It also now has faux ivory grips on it. Russ does nice work. He makes a lot of leather gear for the SASS crowd but he does holsters for modern firearms as well.

Re: Pa. made hand gun grips

Scott Kolar makes some nice ones, he's one of the premier grip makers anywhere and is from just up the Allegheny from Pittsburgh.

Leather from Mike Barranti (also Pa, not too far from the other) would get you set up for any hunt or BBQ anywhere.

If you want the best, those are the men.
