    I know Barami DOESN'T make their "Hip Grip" stocks for J-frame revolvers in left-handed form, that is, with the "clip" on the left side stock.
    Never have, never will.
    I've requested such over the years, and been told "NO", plainly. They make 'em right-handed only.

    I wondered if anyone happens to know of a revolver stock maker who does or will make something similar, but will do so in a left-handed pattern?

    Thanks.

    You know, I was just thinking of that. With a LH Hip Grip I can carry a snubbie @ 6 o clock or thereabouts in a sort of cavalry style reverse draw.

    I know of nobody who will make LH HG style grips. Holler here if you get lucky!

    Wouldn't the clip block the cylinder latch if you made a LH pair?

    So THAT'S why nobody makes one. Doh!

    It might indeed block the cylinder latch, partially, and it would interfere with use of a speed loader too.

    Still, these are not major issues for me, compared to the sometime-convenience of being able to "clip" the J-frame revolver on the waistband.

    Anybody else know of a stock maker who might do this?
