    Well that's gotta be a first. Someone who actually prefers the boxy grip of Glocks.

    I don't have any suggestions but bless ya for following your path and not following the herd.;Y

    I imagine you could get custom grips done, but you'd have to have cold water on hand to wake up the gripmaker after he passed out. :)

    Try Pachmayr Decelerators.

    I'd rather my Glock have a grip that was more S&W 66-like.
    I guess if you wanted grips for your 66 that had a Glock feel you could take a 2X4 and tape it to the 66 frame.

    Like the old adage went: just when you have thought that you've heard everything.;a

    Custom grip is the way to go then, but then I'd like to know which grip maker would even want to take up a project like that. It's not that the manufacturing part would be impossible, but whether or not the artisan would want to involve himself in such a hairbrained scheme.

    Pachmayr "Gripper" grips are rather squarish.

    Grippers are squareish. Maybe one of them olde fashioned grips. Either that or get a 2x4 and whittle away.

    buy the cheapest ugliest grips you can find. Then you will have found what you are looking for.

    Call Eagle Grips. I'm sure they could sell you an unfinished block of wood properly cut for the K frame. Then a wood rasp, sanding paper, some stain and your all set.

    To each his own

    Some of the old S&W service grips are pretty skimpy. I have a Pachmyer T-Grip adaptor bought from Numrich Parts that really fills out the grips. Looks kinda cool in a retro look.

    Try the grips that come a a newer model Taurus 66. They are much more squre like then the houges are. I like the angle of the of the front and back strap, more like an auto to me.

    Sorry Dhoomonyou, I don't have any pix of my S&W standard grips with Pachmayer Tgrip adaptor. I did remember a good website name of Handgungrips.com - they have scads of different grips available with different options - seem to be reasonable prices. Good luck to you!
