    I really like the cool options I have for grips on my SP101. I'm looking for some cool grips to put on my S&W 60. Ideas? Pics?

    So, you're tempting me with something I probably can't find? Unfair! :eek:

    Years ago i bought a S&W M640 that was part of a special run and they came with a set of Rosewood grips that appear to be made by Badger Custom Grips. They are extremely well made and feel like they reduce the felt recoil because of their shape. A nice touch is the hex head screw instead of a plain slotted screw to hold them on and the blind hole on the reverse side of the grips.

    I really like the design and style of the Hogue finger groove grips on my Model 34.

    I would check out ebay. Sometimes you can find some nice grips for under $50 for almost anything.

    ive given up on cool grips for revolvers particularly J frames. Ive now focused on what works best in my hand. ive wasted a lot of money on cool grips only to find that "cheap" one were more functional.

    that said, I would like some fake MOP grips for my G.I. 1911.

    I too had a pair of Herretts on my Model 36 (top on photo) but then I switched them for Pachmayr to shoot better. While the Herretts are better than original grips (which alas were not with my gun when I bought it), they pale in comparison to shooting with the Pacymayrs

    I'm with rc on this. The Herrett's are classic, but all my J's have magnas and T-Grips.
