I have a 1917 but you cannot have the grips from mine. :P A fantastic revolver! 

 

 I agree, check eBay. Amazing what you can find on that site.

Good news I have an original pair in excellent condition—bad news they are in Philly and I’m in Phoenix until mid-May. Keep me in mind if nothing pops up for you.

I got a set of these on E-bay, great fit. reasonable price.

Mine wasn't a military, so the checkering sounded good.

 

Edited, My opps, I had Colt on the brain, got these for my 1917 Colt. (not S&W)

 Interestingly enough, mine is in 45 Colt.

 

 As far as I know the 1917 was made for 45 ACP using half moon clips but at some point in its life it must have gone back to the factory and was altered to accept the 45 Colt.

Sorry, but those won't fit a S&W 1917. I checked his other listings and there was nothing for an N frame S&W.

Unless you are lucky, originals are gonna run well above $100. When I was shopping for grips, the cheapest beat to hell originals I found was $140

Yup, your are correct.

Probably a mistake but I just ordered a "new" pair from China for $35.00

Hopefully, you ordered the smooth grips. Checkered 1917 grips are only correct for commercial 1917s and for the Brazilian 1917s that shipped in the 1930s.
