I found this at my LGS last week. Now I need to pick up set of grips. I have an old set of Pachmyers, but they look awful on the gun. Any suggestiosn? I am leaning towards a set of Hogue grips, like I have on my Model 25-7.

What do you guys think of it? $475 out the door.

I think I hate you.

I passed on a stainless steel 4" fixed sight, combat grip having, pre-lock 25 several years ago and kick myself for it regularly. Was used but in decent shape and about $425.

I knew my then wife wouldn't have liked me buying it...a year later we were divorced. Should have bought it.

No, don't put rubber grips on that bad boy. You need a set of these (at least)

A set of Ahrends would look good on that snub!

Very good purchase. I prefer Pachmayr grips. I think they look fine on stainless and are very comfortable for shooting.

I agree, Ahrends; or you could get a Tyler T-grip. The T-grip has a great "retro" look.

OIF2,

Please identify those grips for us. They look nice and look like they would also be functional.
