Default .44HE 2nd model 5" with Driskill Antiqued Elk Magnas.

Just got a set of "antiqued" elk antler magnas from Ken Driskill (bigmtnman).
I think they look right at home on a 1926-shipped .44HE 2nd Model 5" shooter.

Ken makes really nice elk grips. Here is another example of his work on my 44 HE 3rd model.

Very nice- I like seeing the old large-frame S&Ws, distinctive grips or not!

I have a set of N frame service stocks in stag that Ken did, and put them on this early 30's Heavy Duty. I couldn't be happier with them.

Those look very nice, I've been debating on what to put on my 3rd model considering what it wears in not correct anyway.
