Default Post war K frame grips

I bought a post war K frame 38 Spl. 6" #S926465 with grips not serialized to the frame and was wondering if they are at least correct for the revolver.

Those would be correct up until '52 or so

So yes, could be, likely correct for an S prefix K frame from 1948.

They are period correct, chiefdave, and they look better on it than the 1930s service stocks that were on it when you bought it!

Out of curiosity, what did you do with those?

Glad to know that I didn't make a $50 mistake with the grips, should have ask first but got lucky this time. The 30's grips are on Ebay.
