First time I have heard that wood called "Morado".
Thank you. It's good to learn something new every day.
I never really knew what the wood on my 3" 624 was until I looked up "Morado".
Now I know it's also more usually called Pau Ferro.
Libidibia ferrea - Wikipedia
The set on my 624 do not have the beveled bottom pictured above but look more like the ones on the 3" 24.
Was that a modification?
Kind of unusual for S&W combats of that era.

Those grips have never really fit my hand at all.
The finger grooves are in the wrong place.
I got a set of Spegels (ebony) that work much better.
The quality of that picture is not so good as it was taken off a mirror.

The holster is the one that came with the gun and is about as perfect as can be (BLW).
Notice the cylinder is completely above the belt.
Rumor has it they were made by Gould & Goodrich.
It also works for my beloved L frame 44's so I am really happy I bit for that holster way back when (mid 80's).
