Default Need mfg date and info on original grips please

Hello Smith forum members.......

I have a Smith 66-1 Serial # 74K29xx, 4" barrel and square butt. I'd like to get a date of mfg.......also, would like to know what to look for when shopping for a used set of original grips.

The revolver currently has pachmayr grips.

Was this model ever sold with the service grips, or was it strictly sold with the target grips?

On the inside of the grips, I see some with both a round metal plate and others with only wood behind where the medallions are installed......which ones are appropriate for my 66-1?

Looks like a good set of grips will cost close to $100 and up. Is this the norm?

Not sure if this forum is correct.....might have been mfg after 1980.....?

Thank you so much for the help........

Default info

Serial # would put in 1980 ship date range.

Grips/stocks would be target with the silver washers and the speed loader cutout.

Check E-bay where you can probably find a set for under $100.00.

All 74K numbers were issued in 1981.

OK, thanks......would the original grips still be the target grips with the washer behind the medallions?
