India stopped the exportation of Sambar stag antlers about 20 years ago so the source dried up. Antler hunters were using brush fires to clear the underbrush so it was easier to find the shed antlers. That's why the price went up so dramatically.Ajax used to be THE place, but unfortunately they're out of business. I bought Sanbar stag grips for my .45 Colt Blackhawk probably 20 years ago now. They were 70 bucks. THEN, I checked their site a few years later and they'd gone up to $300. When I checked a year or two later, they weren't importing Sanbar anymore. I guess they're getting scarce or something. Too bad, because Sanbar IMHO makes the best stags. American Elk is okay, but courser grained.
