Can anyone tell me what Smith & Wesson frame fits the Rossi R 971 - we can't get the speed loader to work as it is and want to find slimmer grips.

Thanks.

They take a S&W "K" frame speedloader.

ok, thank you for your reply, now, just make sure we are on the same page - we already have the speedloader - the grips that came on the gun are too fat and the speedloader will not go in - so, we are trying to find slimmer grips. Is the S&W 'K' frame the one we need to look for?

No, while a Rossi 971 will use speedloaders for a Smith K frame, the grips from a Smith will not fit a Rossi.

Pachmayr makes their compact grips for Rossi's.

Rossi pretty much uses the same grip frame for all their 6 shot revolvers.
