Smith & Wesson K/L Frame Round Butt Revolver Grips

The Smith and Wesson K-Frame revolver family are the iconic American double action revolvers. They were the most important platform for the development of all of Smith & Wesson's line of revolvers. The first K-Frame was introduced in 1899 and came, from the beginning, in both round butt and square butt configurations. These revolvers were used in both World Wars and were particularly popular with the English in World War II, where Smith produced 568,204 revolvers for the British armed forces. While there have been many changes in the mechanism or models, Smith has been careful to maintain frame consistency--and grip interchangeability. From the beginning, most of the K-frame revolvers were square frames. Today, most of the K frames produced are round butts. (For a superb, detailed history of Smith revolvers--and more--go to Roy Jinks, History of Smith and Wesson. Find it. You'll like it.)

K and L frames are the same as far as grips are concerned.

Premier Target Collection

The original "Coke Bottle" grips were produced by S&W in the mid 50's to mid 60's, distinctively shaped according to their namesake. They are now a sought-after collector item. These replica American walnut grips feature the historical palm swell and relief cut, along with traditional checkering and classic S&W antique bronze medallions.

Roper Target grips were originally handmade by Walter Roper in the 1930's-1950's in a distinctive thinner target style. Altamont offers replica Olive Wood Roper Target grips with the historic three arch fingertip ribbon checkering and diamond over the screw hole.

ALTAI

S&W K Round ALTAI Super Rosewood Crocback/Stipple with Laser Logo & Label
The ALTAI (AH) Grip is a grip design that we developed for Smith & Wesson. It is basically a conversion grip that fills in the back of the round butt frame to make it look and feel like a K Square butt.

This allows for greater gripping surface and stability. Edges are all rounded and blended for concealed carry. The textures are refined to reduce torque movement in the hand. Smith has used these grips extensively for special projects.

Conversion Target

Target grips were not available for Round Butt Smith Revolvers until--according to me--Altamont developed the Round Butt to Square Butt conversion in the late 1980s.

The New Target Round Butt Conversion grip is a redesigned version of the Traditional K Target grip to fit Round Butt frames. This grip is somewhat slimmer than the Traditional Square Butt Target; the Traditional grip was always a little bulky. The New Target accommodates smaller hands. It had loading scallops at the top of each panel. (The scallop on the right panel was put in to give increased panel area for engraving.)

The New Target grips provide an elegant variation on the Traditional Target and have been used extensively by Smith on their higher end revolvers.

S&W K Round Classic Panel Silverblack Checkered
The Classic Panel Grip began appearing after the World War II, and by the 1950's had basically replaced the Legacy Series (they are sometimes called Magna grips because the ears stick up to cover the half moon fitting surface.) We are re-creating the original rounded Classic Panels with the more elegant lines and checkering.

Service Panel

Service Panel Top Image

S&W K Round Service Panel Super Walnut Checkered with Silver Medallions
The Service Grip is a variation of the original Classic Panel. The early Classic Panel grips tended to be more rounded on top with hand checkering. In the 1940's the grip evolved, no doubt for production convenience rather than feel and aesthetics, into a flat topped grip with very basic checkering.

The Service Grip is the most common, original grip on recent K-frames, and while tough and functional, it is not as attractive as the earlier Classic Panels. It is here because of its history with K-frame revolvers.

Legacy

The Legacy Grip evolved from an original hard rubber, Bakelite molded grip (1890's) which has some interesting elaborate checkering that we are replicating here as well. The Legacy wood version was an upgrade to the hard rubber, and really was the most common grip until the 1950's when the classic panel or magna grip with the ears, took over for reasons of economical production.

For special presentations, Smith offered the Legacy Grips in pearl, ivory, and fancy walnut, checkered and smooth. It is an important part of the historic evolution of Smith revolvers and their grips.
