Default Getting a better grip........

Swapped on the S&W 500 grip onto my 69 to see if I can shoot it a bit better. Borrowed the grip of off my 629-2E.
Seems to fill my hand a bit better.

I went with the Pachmayr Diamond Pro grips as a compromise size. Plenty of cushion on the back strap.

Work good for me, even with full loads.

When I first got mine a few years ago, I had some pretty maple grips on it. The problem was shooting magnums in January with cold hands.
A guy only does that once.

The X frame grip went on it the next week.

Well the main reason was to see if it will help with improving a better shot group. I have found that how the grip/gun fits in your hand can help with placing your shots.
Of course the added recoil cushioning is nice too!
