Exclamation J-Frame - Polymer Grips? Stippling

Are there any Polymer Grips for a J Frame Round? I have a 442 and looking to have Stalwart Defense do a custom stippling job for my father.

I tried Hogue - But they are rubber product and he cannot use them.

Check out PGS Hideout Grips. The smooth version would probably be a good base for a stippling job. I prefer the non-finger-groove model, but they also have one with finger grooves. You can usually get them through Brownells for about $20. The one caveat is that they won't work with speedloaders unless you modify them, which isn't difficult if you have a Dremel (it can be done with sandpaper and files, but it'll take longer and requires more effort). Or maybe you could have the guy doing the stippling relieve them, if so desired.

Here are my 642s with PGS Hideout Grips:



Hope that helps.

Back-ordered on Bronwnell & I cannot find them anywhere. Reached out to the company directly and haven't heard back. This is painful!

Have you checked out VZ grips? They make a couple of different styles for the J frame and offer different patterns and levels of aggressiveness of texture.

Suggest calling Brownells. They likely don’t have them in stock as described, but have a history of great customer service. If you get to their retail store, they might have other suggestions.

I've ordered direct from PGS before. They were easy to deal with and shipped promptly. If you emailed them, it may take a day or two extra - lots of places have thinned their staff because of the Chinese virus.
Another possibility is Ebay, but the shipping is great with some sellers, not so great with others. Worth a look, though.
