    I ordered a set of Hogue Bantam Cocobolo grips for my S&W 327 on June 22nd and they finally arrived today. The finish is beautiful and the fit is perfect. The main reason I ordered then was to shorten the profile for concealed carry and they do an excellent job of doing that.

    Thanks. I like these Hogue Bantam better than the stock grips. They do feel better in my hand.

    Good choice. I think the factory grips increase the size of the gun by 50%.

    That's a good looking setup you have there , I'm a big fan of hogue grips , knives , and other products , I can also say that cocobolo is one of my favorite grip colors. I'm lucky their factory and pro shop is not far from me , its a really cool place ....again a really nice looking rig , and when you get a chance toss some target photos our way and let us see what a nice shooter it is..........

    Thanks. A friend of mine wants to buy one but in today's environment they are very difficult to find.

    I have hogue cocobolo grips on my magnum carry(see profile pic). My favorite wood for grips.

    My first range visit today since switching to the Hogue Bantam grips. Even though the Bantam's are considerably smaller than the stock grips, my hand felt more secure and the checkering helped even more. I love the looks of the Cocobolo woods and the smaller grip makes my 327 more concealable. It's a definite thumbs up from me. BTW I also used a new product for me today to clean my 327. It's called Hoppe's Elite and it did a great job of removing the burn marks off of the cylinder.
