Hand grips for RG model 30
I had a guy I work with bring me what he thought was a smith and wesson, but its a RG model 30, he was confused because its a 32 s&w long and he asked me to find some new hand grips for it, because the ones he has on it broke right below where the hammer is.

And Im having a little trouble because he said that he would like to have wood grips on them but I have yet to find any model 30. But I have found some for the model 38 and was wondering if they are interchangeable or if another model will swap with them.

This pistol has more sentimental value than a monetary one for him it was his grandfather's and he just wants it looking better.

So if any of yall have any knowledge on this ordeal any and all help is much appreciated.

Thank yall,

Have you tried the "normal" avenues?

Yes and they offer brown target but the customer would like wood grips end that was also a question would say the model 31 grips fit the model 30.

And is the brown target they have are they wood?

it is a fairly easy project to make wood grips. even easier when you have a set to match-up.

What is a good wood for it I have at hand american walnut, oak, black cherry, red oak, eastern apple, mountain ash, figured poplar and is there any more.

At this moment I have about a 20' x 6" oak that I just cut down.

I've used many different woods. but cherry has been my favorite. any hardwood will work.

Yeah I like it too but I don't have any of that around me that I can cut down and make anything out of. I think I'm going to make it out of american walnut its got a nice color and grain flow too it, in my opinion.

walnut has always been the traditional choice(and its a good choice).
