    I have a pristine S&W Model 36 Chief's Special produced right around 1969 or 1970 that I first got with the original thin wood grips. I'd added a Tyler T-Grip to them but never liked the way it felt or handled. On a whim, I bought a new Altamont boot grip for it. This is the Altamont with a grey G10 insert for J-Frames. I'm way more than pleased with the way it looks and feels now. It's just a gorgeous little gun with almost 100 percent bluing except for a turn ring. I got it for $400 from a friend who got it from his father, but he said he wanted a mixer board for his band more than an old .38 Special classic pistol. I really did try to talk him out of selling it and even offered it back to him later, but he turned me down. So now it's mine.
