Default New grips for my 629

I just received my set of Culina Grips! Pictures can't really capture how gorgeous they are! They're just beautiful and feel great in the hand, and fit perfectly. I'm really pleased with them, and how much better my gun looks and feels. They're almost too nice to use...but they'll see use and earn some scars I'm sure. They sure make some amazing grips.





Thank you Culina Grips!

Those are beautiful grips. If they fit your hands you are ready to go.

That's a great way to get an old - school look on a round butt gun. Nice.

Those look amazing. What type of wood did John use?

Those are beautiful grips. Still waiting on my Ahrends to come in the mail. It's looks as though I need to put Culina grips on my Christmas wish list.

Thanks, I'm now looking for a nice set of magna grips for my L frame 581. I'll keep checking Cullina's site until something screams "buy me" lol.

Just don't wear a ring on your shooting hand when using those grips. It's surprising how many guns I have that show nicks from rings.

Thanks for posting your pics up. Your 629 looks gorgeous with them on it.

I just bought my first set of Culina stocks for one of my 27's on Monday off of eBay and should be receiving them next week. The ones I just bought are cocobolo wood square butt N frame stocks. Now I have to decide which 27 they will be going on.

BTW, here is pics from the eBay auction of my new stocks for you to look at. These cocobolo wood stocks are quite a bit lighter than the other 2 sets of Ahrends cocobolo wood stocks I have on other N frames.

Pure class A+++++

It's very tough not to like a 4" 629. It's impossible not to like it with a set of Culina target stocks. They make fine product.

I waffled and waffled about buying that set. I'm glad they are going to a good home. In a way, I need to thank you... now I no longer lose sleep over whether or not I should pull the trigger.

On the other hand, once the bug bites... I had to satisfy my addiction and go buy a different set today... a set of vintage S&W Goncalo Alves smooth targets.
