Default New Grips: S&W Model 36-1

A few weeks back I purchased an unfired NIB S&W Model 36-1. I picked this gun up as a carry revolver. So far, I have been very impressed with the 3 inch heavy barrel. It significantly reduces the recoil and makes shooting this gun a real pleasure. The 3 inch is not that much harder to conceal than its 2 inch counterpart - so overall I'm happy with the gun.

I've put actual pre-ban elephant ivory on several of my guns and was talking to a friend who makes custom grips about having a set made for this one. He showed me some Elk he had been working with that was a fraction of the cost of ivory. I told him I would try a pair. They are different from what I am used to, but they are growing on me :-).

I stayed with the style of the factory wood grips instead of going with an over sized pair for easier concealment. I have smaller hands, and this grip size works for me.

My 36-1 is a favorite: I've often thought of putting on elk stags . . . and you're not helping!

Beautiful. I've got a set of these (rosewood). They look good and work well at the range. However, being somewhat larger they print more, so I went back to stock grips and installed a Tyler T.

I'd love to have a set of stag RB j-frame boot grips. Only seen a few, usually they're magna style. I much prefer the way boots fit my hands, and since the extra material is on the front of the grip IMHO they don't affect concealability.

Those are quite nice - S&W medallion and all!
Good going.

I added crimson trace LG-105 laser grips as they are still very concealable but help make up for my aging eyes.

Thanks Jack - that's why I've not gotten off the stick for the stags, really: hard to deny the simple beauty of blued steel and walnut.

Your grips look good and have character.
