Beauty! A friend had a 53 in the late '60's. He kept it clean so had none of the problems some did. Always wanted one, but never managed to get my hands on one.
Excellent target quality shooters, I have my Dad's.Got me an old rusty K38 today. Guy told me last night he wanted the Marlin 60/ scope I’ve got in my trade pile. Said he had old police 38 that had little rust. I told him to bring it up and we might work a trade. Most of the time these police guns turn out to be Owl Heads or such. This one was a Pre 14 K38. Wasn’t crème puff, left side of barrel had surface rust from old leather holster. I put some tranny fluid and 4/0 steel wool to it and other than losing some blue, nice old gun.

Not sure they still do it, but there used to be a process of measuring your hand and tracing around it, etc. If there is, my suggestion would be to follow it and get custom. Buying online from former days might just get you great grips in the wrong size, not for your gun, but for your hand!I'm starting to apricate Hertters grips after viewing all the photos on this thread!
Fast enough has some pretty grips on that Smith!
Perhaps a little bit of searching on Ebay might help me!
