Default Clothes make the man, but stocks make the revolver!

At a gun show last weekend, I picked up a very nice model 48-2 .22 magnum revolver. The magna stocks that came with it are numbered to the gun, but my personal preference is smooth targets. A request here on the Forum resulted in the delivery today of a really nice set of target smoothies. Here are the before and after pictures.
I bought these grips from Tom Mucha, a forum member here - he's good to deal with.

Before:


After:


I kinda like the new look. How about you?

Much nicer look! And feel, too, I'll bet. I have very large fingers from lots of manual labor, and the Magnas are just too small.

When you get tired of looking at the bright, shiny finish on these targets, I'll take them off your hands, if the price is right.

Seriously, they are great!

You might want to contact Tom Mucha at t.mucha@comcast.net. He might have a set available. I bought these from him.
