5 is more appropriate for a custom contemporary gun.

Definitely true, but it sure gets your attention.

#1 would suit fine, but were it me I would be haunted by #5 until I had it setting in the on deck circle.

After wrestling with this decision for a few days I have decided on #1. To me it was always between 1 & 2 and it's still a coin toss for me, I could be happy with either one. As far as #5 goes, WOW ! It is a dandy but would be over the top for a DH.

#1 is gorgeous wood, and a contender. #2 looks more authentic for a D grade restoration.

#1 looks more like the wood that would be on a Remington era DHE.
