The hard smooth grip has been prefered on large bore handguns for over 150 years. The India Ivory was the choice on the Frontier not just for looks. The hard smooth grip can be shifted and lined in the hand as it raises the gun to the firing point. Wood, rubber etc will not shift and line during the draw. These grips are made for steady and 2 handed shooting.

It's all a matter of personal taste but I think S&W combat grips in a nice wood are a tasty treat to look at....

You can find older S&W grips on various auction sites. Rubber grips may be more practical but many of us still like the look of the older S&W wood grips. These grips are highly sought after and have become quite pricey.
