A good friend coworker I have worked with for 15 years bought a new Glock and didn't want to sell his revolver to just anyone, so he just gave it to me as he knows I will give it a good home.

I absolutely love the boot grips over the factory magna grips.

Nice Smith & a GREAT friend you have there! Those Ahrends Grips are nice, too, and since Mr. Ahrends isn't making them any more, they'll probably be collectibles before too long...

I was expecting a 4”. That snubby is nice and I agree on the grips.

Nice.
Surprised no one picked up Ahrends grips after he shut down.

Wonderful gift from a good friend, but if he didn't need cash to finance a new Glock, why sell or give away the revolver? Confused

He just didn't want it to sit around.

We have been good friends for a long time.

He's way past retirement and none of his children want the guns or reloading equipment.

That is a nice revolver. As for not selling, I kind of understand. I have more than I need, only one of my 4 kids cares about guns so I gave my nephew a like new G43 that sees no action since I found 365’s.

Felt good, cost me nothing.

I'm not a revolver guy, but that's a nice revolver. Smith needs to have something like that (6 shot well concealable snubbie with a two finger boot grip) in it's current line.

That's a beauty! I'm a big fan of Snubbies and boot grips...it makes for a gun you can take anywhere. I dont have a K-Frame snubby yet, though...probably shouldn't have opened this because now I want one Big Grin.

I just picked up a 3" Model 60 yesterday...it's going to end up replacing my 3" SP101 that will go to my brother. I love that Ruger, but the Smith is even more svelte and shoots just as well. It breaks my heart to part with the SP101, but I just can't justify keeping both.

The first thing I did when I got the 60 home was to order a set of factory boot grips to replace the 3-finger combat style grip. I'm a big fan of the S&W factory rubber round butt boot grips...they provide good grip purchase while maintaining a very concealable profile.

A most excellent pistol choice Mars! It is one of my very favorite S&W models and has protected my wife of 41 years as well as my daughter her family. Shown is #4 of this model I have had over 47 years.

It is a 64-2; shipped 9/81. The Craig Spegel Bolivian Rosewood boot grips I bought from the man himself at a long ago SHOT Show. This one goes in the box with me!
