Backstrap beating...

Discussion in 'The Snubbie Club' started by pointnopoint, Aug 19, 2010.

  1. I have hogue standard grips, very simalar to what comes on the gun, on my 637 that I like, but they do not cover the backstrap, so the frame is always slamming my hand when I shoot it. Do you know of any small sized grips like the grips that I have but that cover the backstrap? I pocket carry so I would like the grips that don't have a space for the pinky...

    You might look at the pachmyar Compac grips.

  4. I came up with a very inexpensive fix for a similar problem with my 640. I picked up a length of "grip tape" (about 2 feet) from a local home improvement store and cut a strip approximately 1/4" in width and the same length as the back strap. I cleaned the back strap with alcohol, for good adhesion and attached it to the gun. It still works for me and that length of tape should last a long time. You may have to replace it from time to time, depending on how much you shoot and the condition / location of carry. It may not look "pretty", but it's functional.

    I use Uncle Mike grips on my Model 36.

    You are correct to be concerned about the Hogue grips. I had a set of Hogue grips with open backstrap on my Ruger Redhawk .44 magnum for about two shooting sessions. It really beat the crud out of my hands. I switched over to Pachmayr grips and the Ruger suddenly felt like a really sweet shooting gun.

    The same with my Ruger SP101. The stock grips beat my hands up badly. I got a pair of Pachmayr's and the gun stopped feeling like one of the Marque de Sade's torture devices.
  6. I have Pachmayr Compac's on my SP 101/642/M85 - 3 different brands, all with the same grip I am completely satisfied with. They make all the difference not only for CCW duty but for range trips (ie backstrap covered) with extended use.
