    I just picked up a 4" S&W Model 13. It's a wonderful shooter and really begs to be carried. I just ordered my second IWB holster from http://www.concealco.com/iwb_revolver.html for the M13, now I would like a more compact set of grips for it. At heart, I'm a purist, blue revolvers should be clad in wood grips, but when I shoot, rubber grips feel so much better! The M13 is currently wearing a very servicable pair of Pachmayr Grippers, but I would like something a shorter and narrower. If only uncle mikes still made their square butt boot grips:banghead: I have seen the uncle mikes grips on a few auctions on GB and ebay, but the price normally rises to the $40-45 range once you add in shipping. For that price I'm going to toss in a few more $$$ and and get a set of craig spiegel grips!

    Any thoughts on compact, reasonably priced rubber grips???

    Check out CDNN. They have Hogues for your K frame for $17 now. depends on what Pachmyrs you have but the Hougues are more compact that the large ones. Check the website often as their inventory changes.

    Have you checked into the Pachmayr Gripper Pro? They're smaller than the regular Gripper line.

    The Hogues ain't that small, but I like 'em a lot. I have 'em on my 4" M10 and my 3" Taurus 66. I carry the 66 some in a Hume JIT belt slide and the grip, big as it is, tucks in tight. It's at least thin, so it really doesn't bulge. The Pachmayr Compac is smaller, but I looked 'em up and I don't think they make it for a square butt K frame. They make it for the K frame, but the only one I could find was for a round butt.

    I have a set of uncle Mike's square butt boot grips for K & L frames and I don't care for them, PM me if you want them.

    Congratulations I have a 13 as well and its a dream to shoot. I will be following Im real interested on your feedback on the holster you just ordered as well as the one you already have. I put Houges on mine originally then decided I wanted the Pachmyer compac pro this involved me "modifying" mine into a round butt. I figured I dont plan on selling it so I wanted it to fit me. Its now awesome and just feels right in my hand.

    Concealco is backed up 10-12 weeks:( My first Concealco is AWESOME! It is for my 2.75" Ruger security six. It is the most comfortable holster I own. The quality and service of of their products is first rate.
