    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.

    Drooling over that one! Love the grips too; I haven't got to fire one yet, just fondled. One of the best lookin wheel guns ever produced IMO. Nice buy :bow:

    That is a must have gun. I have shot those and they point nice for me. They fit my hand and just feel good. I like the grips and that is a nice home protection piece IMO. And a nice rabbit gun.

    Thanks guys! I already have four 5 star speed loaders, a range block, and a S&W PC holster on the way.

    Here are the loaders and the holster:

    Real nice set up. I wouldnt mind one myself....I am not crazy about the retention strap on the holster, but I do like that style of holster....

    I hear that S&W is doing a lot of after market things for their pistols. New guns don't have a large varity of things for them as the after market makers haven't got going on them yet. So S&W decided that they would make these items, and make the money that was going to the after market guys.

    It must be true. The only holster other than a kydex competition rig I could find was the S&W PC rig I just bought.

    Smith doesn't make the 67-5 PC any more [one of my faves]
    but they do make some that are kick ass.......
    Just something about their PC line.......makes me drool !

    http://www.smith-wesson.com/webapp/...4_750001_750051_775660_-1_775655_757896_image

    I only have a few now 'cause I don't have any more money, and they keep raising the prices. MamaOzo says that I am content with what I have.....she is so smart...
    how else would she know that ????

    My .38 PC is an F-comp.....but I really like their V-comp.
