Have a old Colt Agent. Was looking on Crimson Trace site and didn't see Colt revolvers (might have been me)
Any body know if laser grips are available.

Don't know about laser grips. That is an old Agent with a longer grip frame than the newer ones. The hammer shroud is a desirable accessorie. These older ones are hard to find any sort of grip for. Also, don't use +P ammo in them. It's ok in the post '72? Models. They have an ejector rod shroud, so are easily identified.

I know about the+P ....
I'm going to give it to a women friend of mine.
She likes things with character and this one has a lot.
She seems to think she needs a laser, trying to tell her its a waste of money

If she wants a laser, get her a J frame. Seriously doubt a grip that will fit the older agent is available. I have both an older one like that one and a newer one from 1975. I frequently carry the newer one.

She fell in love with this one (Colt Agent). Tried to give her a pristine model 36 no dash with no success

To my knowledge, no one ever made laser sights for any of the Colt handguns. I don't know if lasers are "a waste of money", I think it's a question of personal taste, but I happen to like them and like to have them on handguns I carry for self defense. With the newly manufactured Colt's Detective Special, there may be laser grips made for it, but I doubt they'd fit without modification. If you're willing to sacrifice the money, you could probably find a gunsmith that could modify an existing laser sight or laser grips to your Colt Agent, but it's not likely to be either easy or cheap, and it might even involve permanent modification to your Colt Agent (i.e. drilling and tapping holes in the frame.

Regards,

Dave
