Default RETRO Banana Grips on a K-frame...Any PICS You Can Post??

Hey all.

In my seemingly endless search for grips I came upon some pics of grips I dont think I have seen before. At first glance I thought they were just the same as the factory MAGNA grips like what came on my 3-inch 65. After looking at them closer, theyre not the same. The 2 examples I saw were on the Ahrends website and boy they are gorgeous, especially the light, blonde wood set.

Anyway, I wondered what theyd look like on a pistol with a 3 inch barrel and whether theyd look like they were too big or bulky. So, I thought Id ask you fellas for your input....once again.

If anyone has a set of these Banana grips, or RETRO Banana grips on your k-frame, please post some pics, Id like to see how they look.

Thank you all once again. I really appreciate you all taking your time to help and offer advice. Its the main reason I love this site. Everyone is so eager and happy to help others. No ego stuff or piling on at all. Not many places like this left.

Have a great weekend and stay safe.
Larry

Here are a nickel and a blue gun with banana grips. I like the way they feel. Enjoy. Hope this helps.
