Firearm Gun Revolver Trigger Gun barrel
Ordered, received, and installed my new T grips from Tyler manufacturing within one week. Installation was less than two minutes and was a snap. They seem to be firmly in place. I purchased the brushed aluminum T grip for $27 and paid $6.75 for shipping and delivery. The grip forces my fingers into a new position that feels a bit awkward to me at this point. However they are new and warrant a trial at the range. www.t-grips.com. Happy Holidays!

I never tire of looking at wheelguns wearing T-grips. Don't know why! :dunno:

I've seen t-grips in articles for for as long as I can remember, but never owned one or held one. How do the grips attach to a revolver?

Go to the website indicated in the original post and you will find out how they are attached. Very simply put, you loosen the wood grips (or whatever material your current grips are made of) on your revolver and slide two copper wings that are attached to the t-grips between the gun frame and each side of the now loose wood grips. Then you tighten down the grips on these copper wings thereby fastening the t-grip to the frame. I wish I had taking a picture of the t grip with the copper strips before I installed it. It would be absolutely clear if you saw it. You might find a YouTube of it.

Your explanation is quite clear, and you've answered a question I've had for a long time. Thanks.

EEEZY PEEEZY to put T grips on. MadCityJack has done an excellent description of how the T grips are installed. I also have them on an old Chief's Special J frame--- those were made by Pachmyer back in the day. :cowboy:

The Ruger Security Six is a great old revolver that just lives on and on. I marvel at the gun's tank-like construction (check the beefy top strap!).

The Tyler t-grip looks good on your Security Six, and I'm interested in knowing if it helps with the gun's handling. They must provide some benefit since Tyler has been selling them for many years.

I am eager to take my security six out to the range and fire some 357 rounds. After that, I will post an update here addressing whether the new grips are helpful with trigger control and recoil management. It may be a few weeks before I get to the range, so don't hold your breath. Happy holidays, MadCityJack

I'm partial to .357 revolvers for sure, and the Security Six in its day was right up there with Smith & Wesson in terms of strength and reliability. I don't shoot .357 much anymore, but I won't part with my Security Six. Thanks to your photo I know how my Security Six would look with a T-grip.

Let us know how it shoots with the grip, and .357 rounds.

I have a Security Six with the 2 3/4? barrel, and like it a lot.

They are good, well made revolvers.

great looking piece. I think "back in the day" the Ruger was above and beyond the Smith in terms of strength and reliability. Keep in mind the Speed Six and Security Six pre-dated the Smith L series.

For shooting, I've always preferred the Hogue and Pachmayer grips.....but, they never did have much favor when it came to how they looked.
