I've been thinking of buying either a S&W 41 or Hammerli 208/208S. The 41's are all over Gunbroker but the 208 selection is more scarce. Figured I'd see what you guys might have. I'm looking for a nice quality shooter, I'm a lefty so not really worried about the grip since I'll probably have to replace. Red dot mounts and 1911 grips are a plus. Shoot me a PM of you've got one.

+1 looked around for a deal on a 208s for 2 years. Finally found one I liked, passed on a couple just as nice, ended up paying $300-400 more than I would have by waiting.  My suggestion is don't wait too long the prices just keep rising.

I'm afraid the 208S's will be out of budget, not wanting one so bad to spend close to $3k for one. I've seen some that sold for under $2k but takes a bit of patience.

The 215s, which I have, is the same gun for all intents and purposes and will cost a few dollars less.

Good Luck,

Joel

Nothing wrong with a 208! The S isn't much different. Either gun ya gotta pull the trigger:P)
My PB 22 aggregate is 895 with 208. 
Trigger adjustments for either version can make or break ya. I've felt some horrendous triggers on them both.

So with the 1911 grip adapters is the grip volume exactly that as the 1911 or is it thicker?

CMM seems shorter front to back to me. Never measured it. I use flat on all of mine.

Thanks to a head up from Jon I scored a practically brand new 208S for just $1800 from Simpson LTD, I think it just hit their site as I don't think it would last long at this price. Should be in tomorrow. Now I need either a LH ergo grip or a 1911 adapter and a scope mount.

Zane, I wonder if a 215 grip fits a 208.
I see a lh 215 available 
Maybe they’d have better success selling it as a RH grip

Just a thought

Where do you see a 215 LH grip? Simpson has some grips for a Hammerli 160.
