Not a Smith, but I can't pass up a deal like trading a used .38 for a new .44 Magnum. Here is one of the Blackhawk 50th Anniversary Flat Top Models. I shot it a couple of days ago with my favorite handload of 10.0 grains of Unique and a 250 grain cast #429421 bullet. The gun is very accurate, but the grips have to go. The recoil itself isn't painful, but the grips have the texture of 60 grit sandpaper after a couple of cylinders.

Well done David kfjdrfirii
I questioned those grips the first time I saw them. While looking somewhat like the original hard rubber Colt grips, wood looks better {IMO} and is more user friendly

Very nice! I agree with Mick, wood would sure look good on that.

Would it? I would wood it if I couldn't Tru Ivory it. Really, I wood. I mean I would. I think. ;)
Or, like Charlie said,"Stags would look nice."


I could go with some nice Elk horn grips...
