    That is a beautiful gun, and eight rounds to boot! I have about the same invested in my Jim Clark Custom .45.

    I looked this revolver up at my suppliers and they show it with thinner wood (combat) grips than what yours has. I like your grips better.

    It came with the grips you pictured and a set of Rubber Hogue conversion grips. But I am a revolver addict with about 60 revolvers; so, I have boxes of grips, holsters, speed loaders, etc!!

    I prefer wood grips but the round butt grips that were on it looked odd with the 5" barrel, so I put on some Round to Square Altamont Conversion grips. Those are the ones in the photo.

    Thats what I thought. Either that or I thought they may have shipped some earlier with those grips. I prefer your grips for sure. I will bet thats gonna be a shooter.
