    I'm looking for a nice set of wooden grips for my S&W L frame. I know I'm asking a lot but I want something really nice but I don't want to spend $100 either. I’m not sure what I want but something in a combat grip style might be nice. Suggestions, links and even pictures would be appreciated...

    Thank you!

    You didn't specify if it's a Square or Round tushie gun. :D
    Here's a picture of some of both.
    Most of these would run in the $40-$100 range.

    Wow Jeff, really nice grip collection. :eek:
    I just bought this round conversion set for a 686 L-frame. Cost was $78.90 after shipping.
    They haven't come in the mail yet, so this pic is a stock photo.

    If your L-frame is a square butt, 586-4 with a 6" barrel, it would look like this with S&W combats.. I see them on ebay all the time. They run $70-$100 range..

    I myself would like a set of matching Ahrends square rump :) no finger groove grips for my S&W K-22 and Model 14, identical to these pictured on the Ahrends website:

    I am also considering some that look like this (again, picture comes from the Ahrends website), but without finger grooves and possibly in a round-to-square conversion for my round butt 686:

    Does anyone have pictures of Ahrend's round-to-square grips on their gun? I'd like to see how they look from an angle looking at the backstrap.

    I wanted to dress up my L-frame 696...

    And keep it from printing via rubber grip "stiction". I went with Altamont walnut grips for the little L-frame:

    A little bit of tiger's eye when the light hits them right:

    Sorry I left out the type, it's a Model 619 w/round butt.

    Very nice stuff so far, thank you all...

    Try Grips4guns.com they sell the Badger and Excaliber brands. I have the Excaliber boot grips on my 640, very nice, cost around 60 bucks. I had mine in 4 days from California, Express Mail. Worth looking into. Happy New Year!

    If you like the Hogues you can get grips at the hogue Auction very cheap. They are supposed to have defects but I couldn't see anything wrong with the two sets I got.

    They are low on S&Ws right now but you may still find something you like.

    Arch;

    Since the L and K frame guns share the same grip skeleton, you're not limited to L grips. In other words, don't pass up a nice set of grips because the tag says they're for a K frame. Thought I'd pass that on as nobody else had mentioned it.

    Sigh, the best looking grips are mostly finger grooves which never seem to be comfortable for me. Those Ahrends are beautiful and likely my best option.b
