I want a S&W1917, or one of the 1935 Brazilian contract models

I took my trading material over to the Kittery Trading Post and ordered a Blackhawk 45C/45ACP convertible. They didn't have a new one in stock so will have to wait a couple of weeks to get it. I was surprised at what I got for the trades as I walked out with over $100 more in my pocket. I'm happy.

The 1937 Brazilian contract 1917s are great revolvers if you can find them. I wish that I had bought several when they were re-imported back in the late '80s.

Love my Mod 25 in .45ACP. Bought it in the mid 1980s. It was the first N frame S&W I got, followed soon after by a Mod 24 in .44 Special.



It now wears Checkered wood grips.

I would really like one of the Lipseys Flat Top Blackhawk .45 Convertibles. I don't care about .45 Long Colt but would love the .45 ACP cylinder. I gave up on it when I had it ordered before but maybe some day. It would match my 50th Ann Flat top in .357 Magnum.

Machinist, that model 25 is my favorite N-frame configuration. Blue, Patridge sight
heavy taper, ribbed barrel with shrouded ejector rod. Perfect!

I really like it. The Mod 24 was elegant but the thin barrel didn't have the nice balance the Mod 25 has. It is one of the last I would part with. I have always been a big fan of the .45 ACP. It was the first centerfire I shot as a skinny 11 year old.

My father's old GI clunker. It is due back from the gunsmith any time now. 50 years later it will be back in service.

Thank you, Ma'am! I really like those grips. I now have the same grips on two other S&W revolvers, my Mod 28 and my Mod 629, both with 4" barrels. I also have some for my Mod 65 but that is now wearing Lasergrips.

The rubber grips are more practical and much cheaper but I hate the feel of rubber grips so I went with these. I like the way they look, too. I wish I could get a set for my Colt Trooper. It is an early one and the shape is a little different from the later "J" frame of the Python.

These grips look soooo much nicer than rubber grips, but I suppose there is a trade off for comfort?

I don't tend to shoot punishing loads. The place it might make a difference is with the lighter .357 Magnums or the .44 Magnum but I like the feel of control the hard checkered grips give me. The most painful part is the price, about $80.00 each set.

Yes but once ya have them you're good to go and won't have to ever replace them. Unlike shoes, purses, etc.....

I don't spend much on purses. I think that is more 303's thing. Got to match the new blouses he got at Cabelas.
