    I've got 3 sets of grips for my S&W 66-4.

    Which grips do you think look best on this gun?

    I don't think the black rubber is as beautiful of a material as the other two, but i like the shape better.
    I've never liked those narrow weird grips on revolvers.

    That aged Ivory and a Tyler Grip Adapter would be pretty spiffy.

    Next, The stags.

    Them rubber grips reminds me of snow tires.:evil:

    Stag.

    P.S. I have that same gun (almost) except mine is a model 65. (.357 or .38)
    It was my first gun purchase for home defense many years ago, and is still a fine choice.
    Good looking firearm.

    The rubber feels the best (for shooting).

    The Stag fills the hand best.

    The aged ivory just brings back good retro memories.

    My Grand Dad was a Chief of Police in Muskogee OK in the '50's.

    He carried a S&W with aged ivory grips - don't know what model - to young to care then.

    Apples and oranges ... function vs. form.

    IMHO, the rubber functions best, the others look best.

    What Iggy said. The T-Grip will allow you to maintain the good looks (whether you use the ivory, stag, or walnut) AND fill the hand comfortably.

    Another alternative is walnut target stocks.

    Man it was a tough choice between the Ivory and the Stag ... the big advantage of the Ivory is it makes hippies weep. But the Stag will probably give a better grip surface (and those are a particularly pretty set of Stags).

    Slap a T-Grip on there and you're good to go.

    In this case, the black rubber (Uncle Mike's, I think) The others don't even seem to fit well. Where's the wood!??

    Stag grip inserts on my Ruger SP101 by Sack Peterson look great.

    Ivory

    I vote real elephant ivory. Took awhile to save up for it - but, in the long run, glad I did.

    It would be tough to choose between the ivory or the stag; they both look great. But I would probably go with the stag because they have the S&W medallion in them. Makes for a nicer looking package overall, in my opinion. The rubber grips are utilitarian by nature, so they would be my choice for the range, backwoods, etc. The ivory would look even better with a Tyler T-Grip adapter.

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. For comfort and handling. Go with the black rubber...

    Are those stag grips installed properly? If so, it doesn't look like they fit that K frame.
    Actually, I prefer factory wood, but since that wasn't a choice, I'd go for ivory (if I could afford it!).

    A Tyler T is necessary for the bottom two.

    Show me a T Grip on the Ivory or Stag and you will have a winner.

    Magnas...

    just for Magna's sake (late 60s, early 70s & 80s). Cocobolo or Walnut, or Rosewood, checkered or smooth - they feel right to me and though I have several different styles on my Smiths, they're the ones that fall into my hand like they were carved for it... :cool:

    Ivory and a Tyler-T adaptor. Stylish and serious.

    Stag, but they have to fit. The question was "which LOOKS best". Because the rubbers are much easier to shoot.

    They do have to fit correctly.

    I'm not sure exactly how to go about correcting the over hang.

    Do you?

    By the way your gun is beautiful too.
