S&W Gets New Shoes
 
I picked up this S&W 586 (no dash) a couple of months back. It came with some rubber Pachmyer grips :puking: which had to go immediately. But otherwise it was solid mechanically and had good finish.

Fast forward 6 weeks. I got a package in the mail from Ahrends grips. Oh boy, the new stocks were here! Swapped them on and here is what I have today:

And I will say it shoots too. Some .38 Special 158gr SWCs backed with W231, 25-yards Double Action, standing two-handed:

And of course what revolver post is complete without a family portrait?

(Still to find: N-frame .357, K-frame .38, and something J-frame. Preferably a pre-J Magnum frame.)

Fantastic!

The look great!

Are they Maple?

Very cool grips.

Yeah, what kind of wood is that?

Teach me to post at dinner time! Those are Ahrends Smooth Tacticals in maple. The picture doesn't do them justice, I need to retake it with a bit darker backdrop for better contrast. The figure just pops, especially near the backstrap. It looks like they're textured even though the finish is smooth.
