    My dad has a 4506 and wishes he could change out grips. Anything out there for him?

    DITTO. Hogue makes some good grips for it. I have a set on my 4506 just like the picture,
    If I could buy a new set I would buy same color but ones w/checkering.
    4506 is a great gun I've had 3

    Hogue also makes the same style in rubber, which does seem to aid in hanging onto the big S&W.

    Anyone who hasn`t tried them should be aware that the Hogue rubber grips are much thicker than the factory grips and increase the trigger reach as well. I have big,stong hands and I still felt swapping the factory grips back onto my 1006 was an improvement over the Hogue rubber grips that were on it when I bought it. No they don`t feel as good but it points better (for me),carrys easier,and I shoot it better in DA. YMMV Marcus

    Yes, the Hogues are thick, wish they made them in the flat back strap form.

    I have Houge rubbers on my 4586 and will switch them for factory because of the thickness. My soon to arrive 4546 will get NEW factorys also but I plan to thin out the used houges and see if they hold up.
