S&W Gets New Shoes

I picked up this S&W 586 (no dash) a couple of months back. It came with some rubber Pachmyer grips which had to go immediately. But otherwise it was solid mechanically and had good finish.

Fast forward 6 weeks. I got a package in the mail from Ahrends grips. Oh boy, the new stocks were here! Swapped them on and here is what I have today:

And I will say it shoots too. Some .38 Special 158gr SWCs backed with W231, 25-yards Double Action, standing two-handed:

And of course what revolver post is complete without a family portrait?

(Still to find: N-frame .357, K-frame .38, and something J-frame. Preferably a pre-J Magnum frame.)

Teach me to post at dinner time! Those are Ahrends Smooth Tacticals in maple. The picture doesn't do them justice, I need to retake it with a bit darker backdrop for better contrast. The figure just pops, especially near the backstrap. It looks like they're textured even though the finish is smooth.
