    I have a S&W Model 60-9 (1997 vintage) with the new style thumb piece. I like the traditional lines of the older style thumb pieces.

    Does anyone know if these will interchange between models?

    j-frame is a j-frame for grips.

    Only difference is square or round .

    Not talking about grips ~ thumb piece (cylinder release).

    Just be aware that, at least IME, the old style latches offer less room for speedloader clearance, which, in a j-frame, is already plenty tight.

    Like already said, yes they are interchangeable.
