    Any good? I've heard that people have had problems with them, but they've got some I like.

    I ordered a set of "Secret Service" grips for an older S&W Model 38. Had to send them back twice because they were too big. I told them that I was getting tired of paying postage to ship them back and forth, no response. They finally got it right, but no gee we're sorry for the inconvenience.

    I've got a pair of the checkered oversized on a K frame and they are nice.

    I had "Secret Service" on a Colt Agent and "Classic" on a S&W N-frame (Model 25-5), both in smooth rosewood. They were more than satisfactory. Strangely, the S&W grips they sent me lacked a cutout on the left grip to clear the ejector rod and cases. I sent these back for correction and they were returned to me promptly.

    The rosewood - obtained by the company's Indian owner through connections in the "old country," as are some of the other materials - is very attractive, and has other interesting attributes. It is not varnished, as the sanding tends to close up the pores and keep moisture out without the need for any. And despite the lack of checkering, the wood is not slippery - it has a slight "tackiness" to the surface.

    I've had a set of the "Secret Service" on a 649 for a while now, I've like them from the moment they went on. They do tend to 'crowd' the speed loader a tad, but there ain't much room on a J frame to begin with.
