Hi, I met a gentleman at a gun show who was selling a rossi m461 with wood grips, when i asked he said they were for a colt d special and "they bolted right on", when i looked closer they looked like they had light sanding done on the rear corner but thats it. I have owned this rossi model before (first handgun) but eventually sold it. My question is if anyone else has ever tried this maybe with a different firearms grips (s&w,taurus) before. I curently own a m351 rossi and would like to own more rossi's but the grip problem is detering me from doing so. If this has been discused before I apologize I searched and didnt find anything. thx

Don't let the grips on a revolver prevent you buying it. Just get some grips that fit you properly. When I bought my Dan Wesson, it had target grips. I shot it once that way. They were much too large. I replaced them with Hogue soft rubber monogrips. They have finger groves, and being soft, they absorb a lot of the shock, especially with the more stout loads.
Note: Some people don't like the sticky feeling of the soft rubber, and say that they are slower in a "panic" draw. I prefer them, and find that smooth wood grips to be too slippery. To each their own, I guess.
