Default Round Versus Square Butt Photos

I've searched here and elsewhere to see a photo that actually shows the difference between a round butt and square butt grip frame.

Does anyone here have one that they can post?

Thanks, Iggy!

There really is a substantial difference in the grip circumferences at the bottoms.

I can see why round grips are better for smaller hands and concealment.

That sure is a beautiful four pack of 629's. That's nicer than a hustler centerfold.I have a wood addiction along with my gun problem so needless to say the grips are gorgous.

What's the verdict on ease of shooting--square versus round butts?

I talked with John Linebaugh the other day. Like me, John has small hands. He prefers his square butt Model 25 over the round butt versions. He's put on an "older" Colt style set of grips to slim the grips down.

I will receive a Tyler T for N frames soon and will see how that helps my shooting.
