It could be, they look like custom made grips. I even think whatever screw that is holding them on must be under the buffalo's too. That's the only thing I can come up with, any other suggestions?Your inletted buffalo emblem is identical to that of the buffalo on the buffalo nickel, just larger. Perhaps it came from a medallion or some one carved it.
I probably will, I just wanted to give some of the Guys/Gals around here a shot at it before I join another forum. :thumb:Go to the Smith & Wesson forum or find a Smith collector and ask. The J frame Smiths have been carried and shot for years. Very good guns, owned several in different calibers over the years.
This was my Grandfathers gun and my mom gave it to me. I really would like to know the age of the pistol and if anyone could tell me anything about the grips. I've Googled anything I could about the grips but can't seem to find any info. Any help would be appreciated

Thanks to everyone for the info, this helps me out a ton! I knew the guys around here knew their stuff. I may seriously do what MOONDAWG suggested, just to go along with all the sentimental value, it'll give the history of it too.1962 J frames started at 295000 so that's close enough to call it 1962. Maybe it was a Buffalo nickle, just hammered bigger.
