Is it the large acorn-head style?

No the first model 32 had the acorn head, but the larger frame had one that is similar to the modern M10

Here's one of mine showing the ejector rod end. This one is one of the 2000 the Army purchased. Unfortunately it didn't come with the original grips and I haven't been able to find any that are 100% correct though the ones it is currently wear are closer than these.

I don't know that much about the S&W revolvers but have you looked at Vintage Gun Grips? They have a large assortment of reproductions and may have something for you. https://www.vintagegungrips.com/product-category/categories-prod/vintage-gun-grips/?ap=s I don't think this hot linked but you can copy and paste.

Perhaps you should open a thread in the frontier iron board to a more general audience

   Thank you.  If the good lord is willing I will be at the 1st Saturday in May shoot.  I will bring mine down.  It is a well worn factory engraved model.
