    Smith & Wesson Model 49 with target grips

    Dad passed away in 2016, but I am still finding things that I brought home after his funeral. This last Sunday I opened a box and found many different types of S&W revolver and pistol grips. To include a set a J frame target grips. I have several back issues of different publications (Shooter's Bible, Guns & Ammo, Guns) from the Seventies in which they state the J frame target grips won't fit the Bodyguard. Well I don't know what is going on because this set fits like a glove. I acknowledge they look rather odd on the Model 49, but they fit my hand very nicely. Have to get to the range to see how they handle with live ammo. Genuine vintage grips. Fairly certain the grips were made in the seventies and my Model 49 was manufactured in 73. They go together. The grips will not be staying on it permanently. When I'm on-duty it will still wear the Pachmayr Compac grips. Figured folks here would get a kick out of the old style grips though.

    Sweet. If I got another revolver it'd be a hammerless.

      Nice. A 49 is missing from my collection. I never liked them, but now I really do.

        Not too bad. But as long as it is comfortable to you, who cares.

          Playing "Hard to get" isn't usually your style but it is refreshing...
          "Except the Lord build they labor in vain that build it." I firmly believe this; and I also believe that without his concurring aid we shall succeed in this political building no better than the Builders of Babel: We shall be divided by our little partial local interests; our projects will be confounded, and we ourselves shall God governs in the affairs of men. I have lived, Sir, a long time..."

            Are you stating that I own a collectable that you don't own?

            I have a Mid '70's Model 49 that I brought from a R/O @ Freeport a few years ago. A very nice example if I remember correctly.

            If you want it, just let me know.

                  Did you mean my Sig P6 or the P7 that I'll never sell?
