Default K Frame Herretts?

I bought these Herrett Shooting Stars model RK recently. When I tried to put them on my model 19 the pin hole is off. Upon further examination they dont fit quite right. They could possibly be fitted but the big issue is they seem to be made for a revolver with a wider grip frame. They are clearly marked RK. I am guessing they are miss labeled.

Can anyone tell me from the photo what they might fit?

Colt put the pin on the back corner of the grip. Not sure about others.

Hey Brother.

I don't know what they fit, but I've got a pair just like em. Has the RK sticker, but no way they'll fit a K frame.

Good Luck

I have a pair of Shooting Stars that are labeled RM. They fit a Smith N-frame. But note, they are labeled "RM" not "RN". So that K in RK does not necessarily mean K-frame.

Sorry they don't fit - FRUSTRATING!

Herrett's catalog says that their Shooting Star stocks code RK are their fine line checkered stocks for an S&W square butt K frame. Not sure why they don't fit the member's guns above, maybe some got out the door mis-labeled ?

Or somebody at the factory drilled the hole in the wrong spot maybe?

I recently sold a pair marked RK and they fit the S&W K frame.

If it were me, I'd drift the pin out of the revolver grip, use the hole to mark the pin location, and drill the hole for the pin myself.
Then put the pin back in.

Probably a 10 minute job.

Could they possible be for a S&W style revolver such as a Taurus, or maybe someone just plain screwed up drilling the pin hole at the factory?

On all of my S&W Herretts the pin hole is located in line with and below the grip screw.

Those look the same as the few sets I have that fit a Ruger Speed Six, though the ones I have are for a round butt Speed Six. Hole is drilled in the same place. Maybe someone at the factory put the wrong sticker on it?

I am thinking they are for a Security Six and they were mis-labeled.

I'll probably hold on to them. You never know when a vintage Ruger will come along.
