    Default Astra Inox 38 special

    Hi guys. Need some help please guys. Checked for other threads but no relevant help.

    I bought an Astra Inox 38 special 5 shot snubby, serial number R32****.
    I really need rubber grips. Any suggestions for which model of revolver it is a clone?
    TIA

    Astra revolvers (at least most of their products) are considered to be S&W copies.

    You would have to check which S&W frame is closest to yours, probably a J-frame.

    Watch out for the exact form of the steel part of the grip. They sometimes have small changes in the shape which would render an off-the-shelf rubber grip useless. Or you would need to shape or cut it in some way for a better fit.

    In Durbs I'd take it to Kings, take the existing grips off and ask to scrounge through their piles of "old stuff" until you find something that fits. If you're lucky it will be priced at prices from 20 years ago too.......
