I just bought a pair of grips on Ebay advertised as follows :
"Up for bid is 1 set of New original Smith and Wesson GI (For Air Force .38 Aircrew Revolvers) K-frame grips, (1 left 1 right). These are real Wood grips. Grips Are sealed in original Military package, Marked "GRIP REVOLVER 1ea. P/N 5910301"

The grips escutcheons are silver and show a bird with spread wings. There is a sticker inside the one grip on which is printed "MADE IN ITALY". The package was also marked 7/82. The entire grip, including checkering and inside of grip is covered with a thick coating of polyurethane. The quality of the grips is not up to S&W standards of the early 80's.
What do I have ? Are they US GI grips for a K-Frame or was I ripped off ?

re: Smith & Wesson GI "Aircrew" K Frame Grips

Broomhandle:
These grips are sold by Gunparts Corp
( www.gunpartscorp.com )

and they were USGI as stated and the wrapper is original.
They were made in Italy for Sile for the gov.
I have about 3 pairs. They fit my hand better than the standard factory magna grips - they seem a little thicker.

They are what they were represented to be, but last time I bought some from GPC, they were about $8 and change - I don't know what you paid for them.

FWIW.
