Default Let's See Those Grips!

i have two 686's a 4" and a 6" - also have a 6" 629 - and lastly a 1980 4" Python that i'm looking to get wood grips for - right now i'm looking at some Hogue wood grips and some from a company called Badger Custom - i thought it would be cool to see what some of you guys are using as far as wood grips - i know i will be going with finger grooves but i'd like to see what some of you have done - LET'S SEE THOSE GRIPS!



her's where i'm at with what i'm looking at - the first two are for the 686's - third one is for the Colt - have nothing for the 629 yet as i have to figure out what frame it has square or round

Remove the stocks from the Model 629 and it should be easy to tell if the N frame has a round or square frame. Here is a sample of each. The square frame is the stainless revolver.

This is what I keep on my Model 629's. One from Hogue and the other two are Ahrends. They fit my hands better than the factory "rubber" grips on the Camfour guns and the finger groove combat grips on the Lew Horton.





Badger makes a nice grip, shown on a 19-7.



My all time favorite grips are these Craig Spegel extended boot grips, shown on a Model 547.

While Iím partial to factory wood like the combats on my M66, you canít go wrong with anything from Culina (use the search function).

Smith's "Combat" grips..... for me ....... felt good in the hand until I put them on a gun..... they all seemed to push my little finger to far from my ring finger making the grip feel wrong, less secure. For the cost today; see if you can try a set before buying....................

For me Spegal Boot and Extended Boot grips are prefect and I've been using them since the mid-80s...... problem today is the 2 year backlog.

I really like Ahrends stocks they just seam to fit my hand (xlg.glove size) the best and they look real good, getting hard to find now.

I'm partial to John Culina's grips.

Those are very attractive grips! Two questions: Assuming those are Hogue Top Groove grips, how have you found them to function? Second, what wood are those?

Thanks!
