S&W Model 19-3 grips

I have a S&W Model 19-3 beautiful .357 it in 1976 instead of a senior ring for college graduation. I want to put some good grips on it that will allow me to use my speed loaders....anyone have a suggestion?

Hogue and Pachmayer make a variety of styles, both wood and rubber, that allow you to use speed loaders.

Any of these will let you use a speedloader well enough (all shown on my own S&W 19-3):

S&W K-frame Magna/Service grips:

S&W K-frame Target grips w/ Speedloader cut:

Ahrends K-frame "Tactical" grips:

Ajax K-frame Magna/Service grips (shown w/ Tyler T-grip grip adapter):

This one, probably not so much--S&W K-frame Target grips w/ "Football" relief:

I absolutely love my Nill grips! A bit pricey but well worth the money in my opinion. And I've used all kinds of speedloaders with this setup. If you want pictures from the other side of the gun, I can take some tomorrow...

(mine's a 19-4 though )

Craig Spegel boot grips. drop-dead georgous, pricey, hard to find and actually very functional.

I guess I'm just too old school. The only thing I would take original grips off for is an old set of Roper's or Sanderson's.
