Thanks, adam. I agree. I did a search on 'rubber revolver grips', and the Pachmayr grips appear to be the ones. Now to only figger out which model works. The RG23 has two very small grip screws, and what I see the Pachmayrs use one all the way thru. Fun times!

I wonder if the grips were modified to fit the RG? Looking at Pachmayr's site they show nothing fitting an RG. They look good in the Gunbroker site

Those are Pachmayr Compac grips, probably for an S&W J frame round butt. You can cram them on to quite a few other small revolvers and they will work although not fit very well.

I think Ferg is right on here. This looks similar and is intended for a Rossi. http://www.midwayusa.com/product/329745 ... bber-black
There's a Pachmayr grip similar to the one pictured but it has a single screw in the bottom of the grip. I've seen those on Charter Arms revolvers in the past. Speaking of Charter revolvers, If I ever see a set of these rubber grips for cheap they're coming home with me.

I just love the way they look and feel. I'm sure they'd fit on something else or at least could be modified to fit another gun.
