Can someone tell me if the J Frame S&W grips or any other grips will fit a Rossi 518 .22 ???

Rossi pachmayr "compac" grips *should* work, FWIW.

I took a look at those but I was leaning more toward some wooden grips.

Just don't know what will fit........

No, J frame grips won't fit a Rossi. I have the Compacs on my 511 Sportsman, love 'em. Also, Ajax ( www.ajaxgrips.com ) has some of their grips for the small frame Rossis. I have a set of pearlite on a 3" 68. I call it my "pimp gun". :D

Those AJAX grips are nice but $95 is more than I wanted to pay for grips.

I'd be happy with a set like the standard Pachmayers or Hogues if I could find them.

Do you know of any other options?

Wiggles, I just went through a bit of grip experimentation with a Rossi 742; the consensus from that, and some feedback at the Rossi forum at taurusarmed.net, here (http://www.taurusarmed.net/forums/index.php?topic=16555.0) was that most Rossi grips will fit most Rossi revolvers... at least thus far. I'd look for any wood OEM Rossi grips on ebay for your 518; the 68, 88 or any of those gun grips will probably work.

If all ya want is a set of standard Rossi wood grips, I'm sure I have a set stashed somewhere for the price of shipping. Shoot me a PM. I've replaced 'em on every Rossi I've owned. Bound to be a set stuck back somewhere, LOL. I prefer the rubber grips on the Rossis and Pachmayr Compacs work great. I do have those pearlite ones on the 68. They're kinda cool, but were only about 40 bucks when I got 'em. Ajax has gone up. I have a set of Sanbar Stags on a Blackhawk I gave 70 bucks for a while ago. They're up to 300 now. OUCH!

I went and looked. I found one set. Not sure where or which closet I put the others. LOL

That's pretty cool of you, MCgunner.

Yeah, where do all those old grips go, anyways? Like socks in a dyer...
