The simple fact, though, is if I'm looking at a table full of handguns, and one or more have a brass grip frame, that is where my eye, my hand, and likely my pocketbook are going. Two of the three guns I use in CFDA have brass grip frames, and my long gun might one day get a brass grip frame, if time and money allow.

There is just something about the warmth of the yellow, brass grip frame that draws my eye. Couple the brass to a case-hardened receiver and it's a thing of beauty indeed!. After thinking about it, brass is easy to machine, and should be easy to engrave. After this competition season is finished, I may remove one of my grip frames and take it to a local shop to see if they'd be willing to embellish it a bit. Wouldn't that be nice?
Regardless, if you're trying to sell me a revolver, make mine with a brass grip frame. I'm a sucker for those things.
