Looks nice, Vince.

Did it originally have Hogue rubber grips?

Thanks Kernel, came as it, original box and papers and those aftermarket grips that look nice but I'll be looking around for an original hogue. Rifling has to be 98+ and no discernable wear in the forcing cone or top strap. Light drag marks. Lockup is tight and the trigger, especially the single action, is very very light.

Here's an inquisitive question....
Originally came with Hogue rubber grips but would those grips have a hogue or S&W logo on them?
