View Full Version : My Updated Wheelies

Just a few shots of my wheelies sporting their new Pachmayrs.
First is a Colt .38 Special DiamondBack and the second is a S&W Model 48 .22 Magnum.

Next are my two .357 Magnums. First is a S&W Model 28-2 and the other is my S&W Model 19-4.
Don't you just love wheel guns???!!! ;)

Sure do! It's the pachmayers I don't care for :)

JP, I'm with Punchie on this one. Ditch the Pachmayers.
Other than that, you've some fine guns sir.
That D.B. is sweet. I shoot a Smith 27-2, 4" that I love and is my favorite revolver that I own.

The pachmayrs fit my hand (in my opinion) better now. I am 6'2 so you can imagine the original grips were small. I also wanted to protect the original grips so they are packed away safely. What would you guys have put on them? I got pretty good deals on all of them. . . .:confused:
As for favorites, it is a toss up between the D.B. and the 19-4.

I left the wooden "Cheese Graters" on my Model 29
cuz I wanted it to be exactly like Harry's .:D
That sucker is extremely accurate I might add. :)

Don't get me wrong,; I liked the look of the original grips. It just didn't feel like I would have a lot of control of the gun and they felt small in my hands. I haven't fired any of them yet. Going to my brother's this weekend in VA and plan on having some fun with them. Taking all of these and my .45 (Sig P-220). Oh what fun to be had. . . . .:D
I, myself, would get rid of the grips on the first two. That's simply because I don't like the feel of the Pachmayr "Presentation" grip. The "Gripper" on the 27 is fine. I have that one on all my N frames. But I have an Uncle Mike Boot Grip on my RB 19. Improves the look, and is still easy to hold on to.

I feel whatever feels best in your hands improves your shooting so go with it. I have a GP and an SP from Ruger both with the insert grips and they both feel great in my hands. The originals on my Super Blackhawk looked great but were nasty with full power loads so I changed them out until I got ones that worked.
i like hogue monogrips, i have not yet experienced a handgun that didnt benefit from them...

Good looking revolvers:)

JP, see if you can find a set of S&W N frame target grips for your 28-2. They fill the hand a lot better than the reg. Smith grips.
Ain't nothing wrong with Pachmayrs. It's just that everything just looks right with a fine Simth with wood grips. :D

I actually have some stags for the .22 Magnum. I may look for some nicer grips but for now the Pachs do just fine. The Presentation Grips fit my hand better than the orginals. I just didn't want to have the originals messed up so they are all put away.

That's a nice set up in your last pic. I like!!! :) :D

Again, sorry for the old pics but getting my old crap together for a goup photo has gotten to be a task I do not relish. There have been quite a few additions to the 'family'. I prefer wood but like the look and feel of the Hogue mono-grips also.

Damn...it would take more than 2 boxes of cartridges just to load all them there roscoes man:D:D
Several of my S&W .357s and .22s.

Took all of my guns to VA over the Labor Day weekend and had some fun. The Grippers felt really good on the .357's. And the Presentation Grips felt just as nice. Like them both. My wife got to shoot all of them including the Sig P-220 .45. She said the .22 Magnum was a little heavy (since it was a 6" barrel). She didn't shoot the Highway Patrolman because it was a little heavier than the .22 Magnum. She fired my .38 and the .357 Magnum (with .38 loads). They were ok. When she shot my .45, she actually liked it. Her only problem is that she doesn't have the strength in her thumb to operate the slide release. She used to be a little afraid of them but now she is a little more comfortable around them if I have them out. She wants to go to the range and take the pistol class so she can go with me to the range and work on her grip. Baby steps. . . .:)

:) Good for you. Baby steps might take longer but they will surely get you there.
