    i just acquired this and was curious if the pearl style grips are factory or after market.
    Appears to have been rarely shot if ever at all.
    thanks!

    I'm no expert, but I doubt if those grips are original. The original grips
    look more like these:

    I think what you have is a D frame long round butt.

    Original's should look like this; (I think :eek:)

    The grips on the OP's gun are Jay Scott aftermarket.
    The grip frame is the short one. You can see it in the picture.
