    I have a nice SW 586...
    I like the factory grips, but im really wanting to get something with some finger grooves and really LOVE the Hogue fingergroove/checkered striped cap grips, but the $119 pricetag on the website is a little high...
    can they be had cheaper from dealers?

    Also i see hogue offers a cylinder release extension.... anyone ever tried this?

    You can try Ebay.
    You may snag a set for $40-$60.
    The only thing I don't see a lot of is the stripe capped ones.
    What size barrel are you using and is it a square butt or round butt gun ?
    I find that the stipe capped Hogues look huge on the short barreled guns if you have a square butt or use the round to square conversion grips.

    The ones that fit your hand are the best ones.

    I love some of the high end wood grips that I have, but when it comes to shooting the most accurate I have to go with the Hogue rubbers.

    I say, It's wood for show and tell, but rubber for shooting.

    Can't agree there Bob, I see it the opposite way. Wood slides ever so slightly against the skin and lessens the recoil for me. Rubber sticks to the skin.

    IMO rubber just doesnt belong on a blued SW revolver....
    maybe some tactical schmactical thing, but not a purdy shiny blue gun

    A couple people mentioned wood for show and rubber for shooting, personally I don't agree. Maybe I haven't tried them all, but the rubber grips I've tried are all too skinny for my hands.

    David S, I know you liked the hogues , but I would suggest looking at Kim Ahrends stuff for the highest quality at the most reasonable price.
    http://ahrendsgripsusa.com/
    Or what I have on all my smiths are Badger Customs from http://www.badgercustomgrips.com/ They work for me, but the grooves don't always fit everyone's hands. The Ahrends are a more standard 'fit everybody' fit.

    If you're going to shoot a lot of .357 magnums, then I'd vote with the folks who recommend rubber. If mostly .38 Specials, then I agree that wood is the way to go so as to add that extra eye appeal.

    I second the motion for the Ahrends. Eventually, every one of my revolvers will wear Ahrends finger groove grips.

    And a 586 is not going to beat you to death with .357 loads unless you happen to be particularly recoil-susceptible or arthritic. Otherwise, don't worry about it.

    I vote for the pachemeyrs for a hand filling comfortable grip. but they are not near as sexy as some nice wood.

    HogueAuction.com for factory seconds CHEAP

    Check out www.hogueauction.com as often as you can, because they are always putting factory cosmetic blems up for sale for under $30. One week there are none available that fit your handgun, but the next week there may be dozens! You can view pictures of the actual grips and have the option of "Buy it Now" or let your bid ride until the auction is over.

    I bought these Lamo Camo grips to fit my Model 28 for around $35.00
