Grabbed this -3 a couple weeks ago. Finding a decent pre-lock that wouldn't break the bank was harder than I thought.

I do—they fit my hands much better than most finger-groove grips, although since they are very hard they don't prove any cushioning for magnum loads.

I posted a more detailed thread about them here: VZ Grips on a 3" CS-1...first impressions **Range report on post 10**

I like mine, too. I have a set on my J-frame and like them a lot.

When I bought the 686 I was on the fence about VZ because it is a square butt. I am very happy I went with them. They are much more trim than factory target grips and the checkering is very sharp (this may not be a good thing for all, but they stay put in your hand when firing hot loads).

They are my fourth set of VZs. I've been happy with all of them.

My new 686-6 Competitor model (.357 Magnum).
Wonderful feeling firing with it.
