It could definitely be done

And I don't think 2-3 drill holes is a big deal if it is properly done.

 

There is this one

Don't know how it works and the price is a bit steep. But you could probably modify a as mount.

Marushin. It's the main o-ring on the valve (ideally 1.5x5mm but was able to make do with 2x4mm). They always go for a softer o-ring, 50-60 durometer at a guess. While it's great for preventing leaks it opens up much slower resulting in lower fps which climbs back up after a few shots as the lowered temp causes the o-ring to harden. But considering it's only a 5-shot I'd want all those to be relatively consistent. Originally it starts 260fps and climbs to 290. Now it starts at 300 and goes down to 290 from cool down.

My latest purchase. Second hand 2 inch Tanaka S&W R8 357 Magnum revolver heavy weight. Wanted a "compact" revolver but this thing is a beast. Had no idea K frames where so bulky. Still super happy with it. Nice weight and great build quality. Some blemishes with the finish, but that can be fixed later.

It's an N frame? Hmmm. When I looked up info on this it said K frame.

Just checked the Info on the RS version of this and you are absolutely correct renegadecow. Thanks! No I won't buy the wrong grips for it.😉

Damn beautiful Wolfgeorge, where do you keep finding these kits?

I used to find them in Japan .

Unfortunately  prices went up significantly the past 2-3 years there and it's no longer worth it.

Here is my Dan Wesson 715 with my own hand made wooden grips, I patterned them like a s&w m29 like some of the older dan wesson grips. Theyre made of common american walnut, and are the second time ive tried checkering by hand.

Not a big fan of revolvers nor wood grips but I can appreciate and respect the work that goes into making them yourself. Nicely done :) 

Checkering wood with hand tools with my OCD... heeeellz naaaawh! 😛

The checkering didnt come out perfect, but for my second attempt i think theyre great. The gunline beginner's set i bought only came with four tools and theyre not enough to do anything too complicated. So the borders are a bit gnarly, i had to do the corners with a sharp screwdriver. I might pick up a couple additional tools soon.

What the cow said , you’ll never ever be happy with your own work just take others likes or dislikes and run with it ! 👍

PS I think they look wonderful!
