    My Grandpa has a high standard double nine model w-104 and I’m getting him some new grips for it. I found a nice set of stag grips but it says they are for a model w-100 and I was wondering if they would fit on a w-104. Any information would be greatly appreciated

  11. Centerfire Pistols & Revolvers
    I'm a little bummed out. Got a call from my gunsmith. He said he was not recommending adding the rail to my S&W 19-3 revolver. Now I'm thinking about selling it and getting another handgun. I love my 19-3 because it is a revolver and therefore shoots reliably. And because it's fairly accurate...
