    Can anyone tell me if the extended (three finger) rubber grips that come factory on the 640 centennial will fit other J frame Smiths? If so where can I find them and how much? Thanks!

    Yes, they will. I believe those grips are made by UM / Uncle Mike--so you might try googling for them that way.

    A similar / better 3-finger grip (IMO) is the Hogue version--those are readily available, typically under $20.00.

    toledo,
    The grips you linked to are the newer grips S&W now uses, not the older Uncle Mike's grips. The grips currently on the S&W site are nowhere near as good as the Uncle Mike's grips... (just so you know what you're buying)

    The difference is the rubber and the Uncle Mike's are slightly thicker which is better for a good grip. I DO NOT like the new grips. They feel very cheap and they are too smooth for good purchase.

    Here is the link to the Uncle Mike's boot grips and the new S&W boot grips so you can see the difference. It's the same difference with the combat grips. As for where to find them, sorry I can't help. The only place I knew they "were" was on the S&W site.

    If you are willing to buy wood grips I can highly recommend Badger Custom grips. Look at the full size J frame grips on that page, not the boot grips. I have them on my M640 and they are GREAT!!

    They fit any round butt J-frame.
