I got this nice pair of older Eagle Stag Grips in yesterday, not a mark on them. Looks like the box took most of the hits. Later, they learned not to put such as sharp point on this style of grip as they break, way too easy. Anyway, the gun is a ca.1972, late, MDL 29, slated to go back to S&W after the holidays to be reblued. I just never get tired of this sort of thing.
