    Grips for a S&W Model 10-5

    I trully hope I have selected the correct forum for this topic...it is a question about a defensive handgun so here's hoping.

    I just recently re-acquired an S&W model 10-5 snubby that I bought from an army buddy when I was a kid (the 70s) and subsequently sold to my dad. Long story short it is now back in my hands where it will stay until I am too old to lift it and I pass it along. It stll has the original walnut grips and I am planning to put on some pachmyer or equivalent rubber grips and would like any input you all may want to provide for what models/makes might meet my specs which are:

    1. My hands are not real large but I also want to have them fit my wife's hands too.
    2. It is a k frame which is not too small but it does fit in my side pocket as is so I do not want to increase the size too much which might make it less concealable.

    let me know make and model if you have suggestions. Thank you all.

    Laser Sight For Smith & Wesson J-Frame LG-105 Defender Series | Crimson Trace Laser Grips

    I would put a pair of Crimson Trace Laser Grips on them.. You usually can find them cheaper at local gun shows or dealers than purchasing them from right online.

    If your not into lasers or have a doubt about them. Watch the reasons for lasers on the Crimson Trace web site. As for your wife, it would help her protect herself that much more easily, as women tent to through the shooting fundamentals out the door in high stress situations. (not say your wife has no shooting experience. but even with training they say your only half as good as you are at the range.) I like the advantage to favor me.

    My wife (small hands) and I (medium hands) love pachmyer grippers on all of our k-frames. I much prefer the looks of wood grips, but nothing provides the performance of the grippers.

    Make sure you save the original grips.

    I know this is not something you were considering in your original post, but have you considered one of these (Tyler T-Grip)?:

    Hogue Bantam Grips for K frame

    The smallest rubber grips for a S&W K frame snubby I have found are the Hogue Bantam Grips. These are a fairly hard rubber that do not grab at clothing, and use an internal plastic clamp to attach to the gun's frame, eliminating the usual bolt. They allow a three finger grip on the front, but are cut short like boot grips on the back of the frame. The cost is minimal, $15 or less.

    Here are mine on a K frame model 66 snubby:

    Pogo's suggestion of the Hogue Bantam grips is great and the photo provides a good illustration.

    The fact that they don't grab clothing would be important to me the smaller size is good.

    I agree that consideration should be given the Tyler T-Grip. It is a marked improvement over standard grips and is less bulky than most rubber grips. I've been trying out a T-Grip on my favorite Smith & Wesson Model 10 for over a year and am sold on it.

    I also tried one on a Smith & Wesson Model 642 and it has become a permanent addition. Both my wife and I love the enhanced control that the T-Grip offers on both of these revolvers. It even mitigates felt recoil with +P loads in the Model 642 because of the better control.
