Default SOLD - S&W Grip Adapter

Looking for information on the Grip Adapter that S&W sold years ago. Similar to Tyler and Ace products. Found it in a box of old revolver parts.

Mine is NIB, marked "MED", made of a nylon-like material with metal spring clips. S&W logo, ribbed.

Is it common, collectable? Any info appreciated.

SPF to Long Colt Frazier

Hi Ken - they are found at gunshows from time to time and were made at similar time to Mershon and Pachmayr grip adapters.
I've seen them in the $20-$30 range. S&W collectors like them in the condition you have with box for displays

They were made in various sizes depending on the revolver being used. IIRC I have one in small, medium, large and one marked "J" frame. As stated, in the original box you will see them anywhere from $5 to $25. They can be found quite cheap mixed in a box of "stuff" at a small local gun show or you can spend larger dollars on an auction site like fleabay.

Thanks for the prompt replies. Makes sense.

Don't use adapters on my M60, M14, M16 and 686. Have some nice combat grips for them, though.

Since I'm not a S&W "collector", I'll plan to put the adapter and box into the For Sale section later on and let it go ... unless anyone here wants it for $18.00 delivered.

My Police Model 10-5 heavy 4-inch barrel had the S&W grip adapters on it when it was issued back in 1968.
