    I've found that neither Pachmeyr nor Hogue can control the beast with full power .44 mag hunting loads a la Buffalo Bore or Garrett. Does anyone know of squishier grips that will fit the S&W N frame (round butt), perhaps like the Ribber grips on the big Taurus?

    Get some unchecked wood stocks for your gun. Squishy grips are for girly guns. Seriouly get some uncheckered grips and learn to let the revolver roll in your hand.

    I would rather recommend shooting gloves than squishy grips. And as M16 said, let the gun roll up in your hand.

    Like Miculek grips? They seem the smoothest and most like the SA grips.

    I ordered two different styles of Pachmeyr grips for my 629 and both fit horribly. In short, they SUCK! I put the Hogue hard rubber grips (stock) back on and use a shooters glove. All is fine.

    The older Pachmeyers are fatter - see if you can find a pair used at a gun show.

    SA's roll in my hand, but DA's, even with smooth wood, punch the web of my hand. As long as the grips are wide enough where the web rests to spread the impact, it's OK. Grips that cover the backstrap there are a plus.

    Here's a pic of my 629 - my grips look like they could fit a square butt, but mine is a round butt - that extra gap behind the backstrap might be helping.

    Target was shot at 25 yards on the NRA pistol target (5.5" bull) - lots of you can probably beat a 92, but I'm happy to get all 10 on the paper!

    I'd have to agree with M16 & HogRider

    Take a look at Eagle Grip's Heritage Series "Coke Bottle Replicas":cool: , I have a set on my 625 & 25 Mountain Gun, you can order them with checkering or with out.
