Poll question. Bought wrong grips, help me decide what to do.

1419 34
Bought a set of very nice Badger Custom Grips for my "J-Frame" S&W. Unfortunately, my S&W model 19 Carry Comp is a "K" frame. For whatever reason when I bought this I assumed J frame. Did not figure out my mistake until I tried to put them on, not even close to fitting.

I could return them, but I am the kind of person that lives with my mistakes, no fault of Badger that I am an idiot.

I always just put them in the drawer for extra revolver grips. I have another for extra 1911 grips and one for miscellaneous grips. Then again, I also have S&W revolvers to fit any grips but X frame.

While the fun answer is to just go and buy a J frame, that obviously doesn't really make sense. Besides, the grips you want on your Model 19 may not be the grips you want on a J frame. Have you checked into their return policy? They have a 10% restocking fee and you'll have to pay for shipping. Maybe that would be punishment enough?

The grips look great by themselves. To me, they also look like they would defeat the purpose of a J-frame being compact and easy to conceal. I would return them. Get those grips for your K-frame.

What about calling them, and if they are amenable, return them for the correct ones, with you paying shipping both ways? I bet they tell you that you aren't the first, and with you paying whatever price difference there is and paying for shipping, they are likely to be glad to have a happy customer with no further expense to themselves.

You need a J frame but those grips look terrible for concealment purposes, which is why most people get J frames to begin with.

Call and see if the company will exchange even if you pay the shipping both ways.

10% restocking fee plus I pay for shipping to send them back. They were $100, so if I can sell them for $75 bucks saves me the hassle of returning.

The original grips are too small, knuckle busters. Reminds me of a Ruger SP101. More shoot-able with bigger grips, but yes...not good for concealed carry. If I do carry it will be cold weather / woods carry, probably use a shoulder holster.

Would Badger give consideration for an exchange for the same grips for the S&W 19? That way you would have the grips you originally wanted for the 19 as you intended. I don't see that getting a J frame solves your problem.
