Hi Flyboy!
Nice example of a Kit Gun. These don't turn up in this kind of condition very often. Do you happen to have the cleaning kit and sight-adjusting screwdriver that came with it? That will really boost the collectors interest if you do. If not, you should keep your eyes open for one at gun shows. Sometimes they show up and are available for a reasonable price. Be sure to look for one that is .22 caliber and has the proper length cleaning rod for your firearm.
Regards,
JP

If the grips are stag does it increase value? Just curious, its one of my Dad's collection. Thx

The grips themselves might be worth something, but generally grips don't increase collector value unless they are original to the gun. S&W put their medallion in pretty much all grips by then, and they put the serial number inside. If there is no medallion and no matching serial inside, then they probably aren't original. There's a chance they're valuable, but that will be offset somewhat by the loss of the original grips.

The Mustang grips shown off to the right side of the gun in this picture are not stag grips at all. They appear to be checkered wood, probably walnut. They may well be of 1950s vintage, but they probably do not have a great deal of value.
I'm not even sure they will fit a K frame gun.
In any case, the original stocks shown on the gun are worth more.

Besides, the guy who asked about the stag grips is not even the original poster. That post is more than 2 years old!
