S&W model 15-4 combat masterpiece

Picked this up yesterday. Like everything about it aside from the grips. I am wanting to get a set of rubber grips for this that has finger grooves and covers the backstrap up. Anyone have a suggestion on a good pair or two to check out? I found these (


). Says in the description that it covers the backstrap, but the picture differs. Any thoughts? Thanks in advance.

Here it is.

Check out the Pacymayer.com web site.

According to the info on the Pachmayer site: the Pachmayer "Gripper Grips" cover the back strap. The "Gripper Professional Grips" do not cover the backstrap. Both have finger grooves.

I have no suggestions - all of my revolvers have wood grips, from my model 60 and 637 to my 29. The first thing I do when I get a revolver is take off the rubber and put on wood (and yes, these are carry, competition and hunting guns, I have no safe queens).

It's should be illegal to put hideous rubber grips on classic revolvers.

If it were to be handled very little and ride in the safe, I'd leave the wood on it. Since I don't believe in "safe queens" and I will be shooting this, why not do it with a weapon that fits comfortably in my hand? Sure, I could buy wooden grips with finger grooves, etc...but at twice the price or more than the rubber ones.

I have both grips and prefer the Gripper Pros without backstrap. Mine are on a
Model-10, and the others were used on a M66 357 mag.(w/ backstrap). Big recoil difference and the 38 spec is milder.
My hands are med-lge, not extremely long fingers.

Hogue makes a nice rubber grip, not as square as the Pachs. Mine came from a couple of the discount boxes at gun shows, think I paid $5.00 per pair. Also vintage holsters are hard to find, but the classifieds have a few being sold by "Smiley". They are pretty fair priced and conditions appear good. Good Luck, great revolver.

Thanks for the response. I looked at a local store today and they had some hogue grips. I think it was the monogrip. It felt good in the hand, but didn't cover the backstrap. Not really that much of a necessity, just wanted to keep sweat off of the metal as much as possible. May spend the 20 bucks and get the hogue tomorrow.
