    WTB: Ed Brown cylinder releases

    Years ago Ed Brown made S&W cylinder releases. They're discontinued and hard to find. I need 3 and was hoping one of you fine gentleman had a spare you'd be willing to part with. Appreciate any help.

    Hogue Grips still makes an oversize cylinder release for S&W. A bit different than the ED Brown version though.

    Revolver Supply sells a release that is closer to the old Ed Brown than the Hogue versions.

    The Hogue is a bit much for me, and I have two of the Revo supply ones, but really want some good old fashioned metal.

    Yes, the revolver supply being plastic was disappointing. Perfectly adequate to the task, but we revolver fans are a traditional folk.

    Brownell's has both the short and long Hogue versions in stock.

    I think Wilson made these smaller versions?

    I did not know Wilson made those, thanks for the info. I'm gonna have to pass on the Hogue.
