S&W Model 59 grips

I found a Model 59 at the local pawn shop for a pretty good price.

However, the gun is sporting a set of worn (and ugly) Pachmary grips.

Midway lists a set of factory S&W grips (#852351) that fit a whole bunch of different 59xx guns but don't specifically say 59.

Does anyone know if they fit?

Also, if not, does anyone have a line on original S&W grips?

The gun itself was only $300, I really don't want a set of $125 custom walnut grips for a gun I'm planning on only shooting at retro shoots at work.

Any of the 4 digit model grips won't fit on a 59, I don't know about the 459, 559, or 659 grips
You might try GunBroker in their parts section.

Lots of Smith 59 grips available on-line. A net search turns up 758,000 results.
Hogue makes a swarm of wooden grips. Some of which run $100. They say the 59, 459, 559 and 659 all use the same grips.
These guys show some nice stuff at reasonable prices.
You'll note that Midway shows the Hogue grips as being "Mixed Availability" or "Special Order". Means they don't have any. Probably because the 59 hasn't been made since 1982.
Herrett's doesn't list 'em at all. Gunparts shows 'em as out of stock. They show the same schematic for the 59, 459, 559, 5903, 5904, 5906.
Spelling and grammar count!
