Sistema Colts

I've got a thing for Argentine weapons and have been in the hunt for a 1927 Sistema Colt for some time. Finally last week an auction opportunity for several Argentine weapons came up and I grabbed it. I got two Sistema Colts and two 1909 Argentine Mausers.

Here are the Sistemas (Not great pictures, but I'll post better when they arrive). Both supposed to have matching numbers

I love the Sistemas. Here's my 1946 issue...
That's neat. I have one right at 1,000 below that. Not original finish like that, though. So, not to hijack the thread but it seems a good place to ask and I don't think the OP would be offended:

So I JUST put these grips on it, what do you all think? They are bonded ivory faux-stag from Altamont, so a nice density, feel. I think I'm wishy-washy because of the medallion. I had some white plastic vintage Colt ones that I liked, but I wasn't entirely comfortable with the rampant Colt on the technically non-Colt, though I liked the look. (Yes I still need to Park. the new grip screws or get some pre-Park'd. ones).

So This:
Revolver Gun barrel Font Everyday carry Gun accessory

Or this?:
Air gun Trigger Wood Gun barrel Gun accessory
