I don't know about the grips, but I'm pretty sure the Agent will fit the same holsters as the Colt Detective Special. I am getting ready to come out with a couple styles of pocket holsters, so pocket holsters should be available. I think that Brommeland also makes a Detective Special pocket holster, but I'm not sure that he is taking any more orders.
Concerning the grips, does anyone know it the Detective Special grips are compatible with the Agent? If so, hogue sells them directly through their web site.

Holsters for a S&W J frame will not fit the Colt Agent. The frames and cylinders are different sizes, with the Colt being the bigger of the two.
The Agent, Cobra & Detective Special all fit the same holster.
The grip frame on the Agent is shorter than the grip frame of the DS, so the stocks are not compatible.

If you can get an Agent for a great price, grab it! Or if you choose not to, let me know where I can grab it!
Cold D-Frames are great handguns. I regularly carry my Dick Special in a Bianchi IWB holster, and gave my young bride a Cobra for her birthday. I would not regularly shoot +P in the aluminum-framed Agent or Cobra.

I've always been a Smith man when it comes to wheelies. But the detective special is one good looking gun. If I ever come across one at an even half decent price I'm jumping all over it.

I have an Agent. The grips are not the same as the Detective Special. I once bought a cheap rubber pair from CDNN, and carved out the inside to make them fit. Colt stated back in the day that you can shoot +P but you have to have the frame checked every 1000 rounds. I sighted mine in with Hydrashock and practiced with standerd loads.
