    Hi All
    I started looking for some grips this evening and I can't even find grips on Uncle Mikes webpage. Did they stop making them?

    You can try looking under the "Butler Creek" name. However, a quick search of Midway's site only showed grip sleeves for autos.

    Ayuh...

    As far as I have been able to determine, UM grips are now only available as used, and NOS through a few dealers, and the auction sites...

    Best grip I ever used for taming recoil on the Super BlackHawk was their #59001...

    Glad I still have a set...

    Discontinued product line. They haven't been offered from Uncle Mike's since...oh, about 2006.

    Great revolver handles, just hard to find these days. IIRC, several of their combat neoprene/rubber grip patterns were Craig Spegel designed.

    No grips under either brand in their 2012 Product Guide from the SHOT Show.

    Uncle Mike's

    It's sad that Uncle Mikes moved their manufacturing operation to china a few years ago. A customer service person from Jerry's Inc, stated that the former workers of UM started their own shop and are now supplying them with grips.

    They got rebadged as Butler Creek grips. Then they were discontinued too. I just sold a pair that came on my j-frame for $10 plus shipping on another forum. More importantly, I bought a pair of "new old stock" ones from Numrich Gun Parts for my Redhawk. I would try them.

    OK, that would explain what I saw.

    They were OEM on S&W revolvers throughout the 1990s and into the 2000s, so someone ought to have used ones somewhere.
