    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
