Default New Cokes from Altamont

Just spotted these being introduced by Altamont.
I know the purists will scream, but this is a much-needed product.
Solid wood, not laminated.

I looked last month when they got a mention on this site, but couldnt find any info on Altamont's site. Can you share a pic of the installed grips from the back of the gun?

Thanks for the heads up. Bad news, I just now went to their site, and they are temporarily unavailable. Some of you guys must have bought them out?? I need a set to replace those on my S frame 28. I have lost the originals in a move after using rubber for awhile.

Thanks anyway, they should have more later.

I got unavailable also. They probably underestimated interest, and the CNC is cutting other grip styles.

Thanks OP for sharing and Altamont for responding. I have to admit that whenever I see Altamont mentioned, I'm not very interested due to an earlier experience. I bought a Md 657 Classic Hunter back in the late 90s that came with Altamont "Rosewood" grips. Well, they weren't rosewood and they werne't wood either. But it is nice to see they are producing a really nice looking product in natural wood.

Before you buy those look at the "cokes" made by Eagle.......Much better wood and closer to the original dimensions.....Better grip/stock overall...

Here's a set of Rosewood "cokes" by Eagle for my Colt Anaconda. They have a slight palm swell.

Okay, what are they asking for the altmounts?
While I am skeptical, they seem nice, and they look comfy, a little smaller than the eagles.

They are not showing a price. Normally their grips run under $70.

Altamont stocks seem to be thinner in profile. I like the feel of genuine target stocks that were actually made by S&W. A prime example is my 25-15. Swapped stocks that came with it for 80's real wood targets. Feels much better. Bob

I'm with you.....Altamont stocks are WAY too thin in the shoulders and 1/2" too long on the bottom.....Apparently who ever designed them never fired a magnum handgun..................
