Default N- frame round butt.

Does Smith make an N-frame round butt? If so what models. Any info appreciated.

I don't have the SCSW at hand but I believe all N frames went to round butts in the 1990s.

Unfortunately, the only current square butts I know of are the Classic series.

Most of the modern N frames have round butts.

Here's a link to the S&W catalog:

For many years, Smith & Wesson ONLY made round butts. So you can find just about every modern revolver with a RB

It was not until the early to mid 2000s (After S&W ownership was brought back to America) that the square butts slowly returned to the lineup.

Model 29s and 629s with 3 inch barrels almost all had round butts. Then in 1990 the classic full underlug 629 had a round butt. In 97 everything went to a smooth round butt where the previous frames were serrated.

Both of my 610's are RB's. One is a 5" made in 1989-1990, and the other is a new 4" bought last year.

The 24-3 (44 Special) is a round butt, but since I don't like how the RB fits my hand I modified a pair of RB to SB conversion grips. Great not so little gun.
