The plastic stag grips were a popular distributor add-on. It's likely that the gun left the factory with proper wood stocks, but the wholesaler "upgraded" the gun to get a few more pennies for it from the dealer. The Pachmayr's look great on it and I bet it's a real joy to shoot.This is my pre-model 34 kit gun. I don't know the year model, just that it's earlier than 1957. It's an "I" frame. I had to slightly modify the insides of these Pachmayr grips to make them fit. I never had the original grips . . . it had some goofy looking plastic "Imitation Stag" grips when I got it. I did keep them, though.
