You could paint them pink... for a while - strip them back to wood later. No reasoning with women, however. My wife's new gecko green Jeep Wrangler Unlimited (4dr) wasn't complete until she put a pink fuzzy steering wheel cover on it - and eyelashes on the headlights. No, I don't drive it...
The horror.....the horror. That poor Jeep looks spayed and neutered and with the only reasonable thing to do is putting it out of it's misery.

:neener:Yeah, but I'll bet there's a great looking trailor hitch on the Jeep!
Not a fan of the pink pearlite grips though...

Hey, what's the big deal? If the woman wants pink grips, get the pink grips for her!
That's a good price for what you're looking for in Post #2, jump on them...

Are those both Model 63 ?
I thought the Model 63 only come with a 3" barrel, is one of those an older model or something?

Thanks for the link General. As much as I dont like pink grips, I just ordered the pink pearlite grips for my wifes J frame. A couple of months ago she asked me about red or pink grips to make her J frame a little more feminine looking, those ought to do it.

The 5" 63, a 63-4, was out for a few years ending a couple of years prior to the 3" 63 (63-5) hitting the streets 11/10. I bought the unused 5" 63 from a friends estate. It has the same lockwork & 8x cylinder as the later 3" 63, but I added the HiViz front sight, grips, springs, and some innard smoothing to make it acceptable. The 3" 63 just got grips - it's lockwork was great nib. Fun revolver - probably gets shot 10x as much as the 5"-er - maybe more than my 4" 617.

My daughter is turning 11
I've read a lot of posts where guys have said their wives and their daughters love the Model 63.
I'd rather get her the Model 63 than something like a Cricket, but the pink grips are a must - she flat out does not want a gun that is not pink.
She also doesn't like black.
I thought about the Charter Arms Pathfinder (CA sells Pink grips for it), but I've read about too many QC problems with it - reviews of the barrel being canted or the front sight being too high...
