Default Pre-28 diamond Magna grips

I am new to this forum. I have a minty pre-28 Highway Patrolman that has the large target grips that apear to be dark rosewood with S&W escutcheons. I would like a pair of standard diamond magna grips that match the condition of the gun. Does anyone have an extra set they could live without?
I have learned much from reading this forum and decided to join u

I can't help you with the grips, but welcome aboard from West Virginia!! I have a couple of 28s, and I prefer the magnas as well.

Good Luck, and

Best Regards, Les

You might look on eBay, but a nice-condition pair of period-correct factory Magnas, wherever you get them, might set you back more than you think. There are cheaper options for N-frame grips if you are not hard-over on having Magnas.

Many thanks from Florida for the welcome.

Put an ad in the Want To Buy section of this forum. I was after some period correct magnas for my pre model 27. Found a nice pair here in less than a week! Think there might be some other forum members that will sell you a pair.

Good Luck and Welcome to the Forum!

Welcome to the forum!

if you go to eBay and type in search "vintage smith wesson grips", you will see a nice pair at a really high price - after scrolling...

I bought a pair for mine and paid $175 to a forum member here, and felt like I got a good deal.

Thanks guys for advise. Will search other places as you suggest. I have both the pre-28 and the model 28 and never knew how much difference there is between the two until I started reading this forum. The pre-28 seem more like the Registered model than the model 28.....with the exception of the stippling along the top of the sighting plane and rear sight. I could always 'feel' the difference but learned much from reading this forum.

Welcome to the forum.
Any chance you can post a picture of the Rosewood targets ?
I definitely like Rosewood and they are highly likely to be more valuable than the diamond magnas you seek.

Can't help you with grips (I'm hoarding all mine), but this is what they should look like:
