    BTW, the sight setup on this gun is the perfect one for any fighting revolver. If I could, I would replicate on every revolver I have.
    Im a huge fan of c&s rear u notch as well. I had to widen mine a tad to center the poi which also allows a littls more light which I prefer.

    The 44spl. on the left was a pawn shop purchase my Dad made sometime in the late 60's and
    was gifted to me (after a range work session to see if it should be gifted) in 1974.
    That is revolver is how it was when I got it; barrel shortened and front sight block sweated on and
    left without blue.

    A 1917 SW is on the right. I picked this up a month ago at a LGS as you see it. I do not know
    who did the work, but it is "period correct" in taste and execution.

    I shot a quick and dirty Out of the Box to match video with it here...

    Cecil, I will bring my big Tupperware tubs of grips to class next weekend. Mark Frike and Chuck Haggard helped me get them sorted a couple of months ago.

    Looking forward to seeing you again!

    I was thinking that Presentation grips looked very similar to that first picture of the Mershons.

    Back in the mom & pop/brick & mortar gun/fishing store days, they'd generally have a sale once a year when all the old unsold stuff would get trotted out; if it was marked down low enough, it would sell. If not, it would get trotted out again next year (repeat as necessary). Franzite grips in the faux stag plaastic were probably seen in the biggest numbers, but Mershons were there too. The Rogers and early Hogue grips were apparently too new or too few for me to recall.

    I am continually amazed at some of the stuff that shows up on Ebay in a factory box, when I know damned well it shipped from the factory before my mom and dad got their first color television set.

    What is the difference between the Mershons and the Presentations?

    The pachmayrs are made of rubber-like material, and the Mershons are plastic with a "squishy" feel to them and have a more solid, hard feel. Also, the Mershons seem to be a bit rounder in circumference.
