Help finding grips

My dad has an Iver Johnson revolver that has a broken set of grips. From the research that I've done it appears to possibly be a model 66(s?) trailsman top break revolver in 38 S&W. It has tannite grips and says "hijo topbreak" on the frame. Does anyone know where I would be able to find a set of grips? All the ones that I see for Iver Johnsons look different and have the owl. I was wondering if they are interchangeable between different models? Also, would this be considered a 3rd model even if it was an m66, possibly making grips interchangeable? I will try to upload a picture when I get a chance.

Thanks
Brian

There is a guy (mets2redsox0) over on gunbroker who deals with all types of old obscure grips for both revolvers and pistols. I would try to get a hold of him and see what he might have.

Ohh ya, great looking revolver!

There is a website called; "Vintagegrips" that has replacement grips for several IJ models.

Thanks everyone, Ill check those out. I was trying to find more info about the revolver, but have had trouble. The best description came from an expired auctionarms auction. That auction had the only other picture Ive seen of this same revolver.
