Default I think I found 'that' grip

After the stock wood grips and 2 sets of rubber Hogue's, these finally arrived today-Altamont Falconia Silverback checkered/stipple. A little wider than the Bantams and not as long as the Monogrip. They feel good! (Need a good cleaning tho)

686+, 3", TT Gunleather High ride pancake, Don Hume speedloader pouch.

The right stocks can really make a difference in how a handgun feels and shoots.

My world changed when I discovered Spegel Boot grips and Extended Boot Grips for my S&W revolvers......the right grip makes the gun.

Same with the VZ ultra thin grips for the Beretta 92s....... game changer!!!!

Nice Altamonts, and ditto. My 686-4 has a whole wardrobe. Three years ago I thought I'd give these Altamont Combats a try. My favorite so far.

The right grips are def the key. Sometimes i go through 3 or 4 before i find what feels "right".

I have been happy with all of my Altamont purchases.

It's all about finding the right grips. I've had several revolvers that were good but only became great when I found the grips that fit my hand best.
