I recently picked up a nice used 431. It has rubber grips, but I would like to put a set of wood grips on. I found a couple of sets on line, but one states it is for a one pin frame and the other fits a three pin frame. Since this is my first Taurus revolver I have no idea which I have. How can I tell? Thanks

First I've ever heard of that on a revolver. That's a term usually used for autoloaders where they are describing the number of pins visible in the frame. Not something normally visible on a revolver. Are there any visible pins? For example:

Qwiks Draw, that's where I saw it. The only pins I see are the two grip locating pins at the botton of the grip frame

If you're looking at the grips that QD linked to, either will fit, although the 431 came with target grips.

This is the way the one I used to own looked.

Mine came with different grips. I'm wondering if the difference is 431 grips vs. 441 grips.
Actually the difference was that the 441 had adjustable sight. Your 431 had a round grip and mine had a square grip like the OPs stainless. Taurus used to have both, the way S&W did back in the day. You could even get a 2 1/2 inch model 66 and a model 65 in the same configurations. Sort of like a S&W model 19 and 13 snubbies. Damn I miss the good ol days.
