Here are a few photos of my S&W Model 619 wearing a set of Ahrends Finger Groove grips in Cocobolo. I bought them online from Top Gun for $60 + $5.95 S&H. The fit is perfect and the finish is outstanding. I'm very happy with these grips. http://www.topgunsupply.com/S-W-K-L-FRAME-GRIPS-c-140.html

I just recently bought the same grips from topgun for my 3" model 65. They are really nice and fit my hand just about perfectly. I also got a set of square butt targets for my experienced 15-3. I really like them and dealing with topgun also.

I think I'll order some for my Model 28 when I get some spendin' cash.

Very nice grips indeed. I am headed over there right now to order some for my 6961 and 15-4!!

here are the two pair of ahrends that I own. I will definitely buy some more of these when I need them. Archangel where in PA are you from? If you are anywhere near Bethlehem, I am always looking for others to go shooting with.

No more pictures of wooden grips, please.
I've got three pre-lock N-frame S&W's screaming for wood grips, and I cannot afford them right now.:banghead:

Sorry man but I just had to because I was so happy with these grips!! LOL It took me a long time to decide which grips to order and I'm just so happy they worked out alright. BTW, $60 is a very low price for quality grips these days. Eagle grips are $10 more and I've been told they don't always fit correctly out of the box. Hogue grips in the same style and wood are $20 more and up.
These grips would probably look great on your N frame!! http://www.topgunsupply.com/Ahrends-S-W-N-Frame-SQ-Butt-Cocobolo-RETRO-TARGET-pr-479.html
I'm guessing you live in Bethlehem, Northampton County and not in Bethlehem Clearfield County since your info says Eastern PA. If my guess is correct you live about 80 miles from me and not almost 200 miles away. I'm up near Scranton.
You're right about TopGun, the grips got to my house in only 3 days!!!
