    Collins grips for J frame Smith

    Ordered a set of boot cut grips for my new J frame from Collins Grips... birds eye maple... they do not fit the gun properly... they come too far forward into the trigger guard, and when you pull the tigger, your finger hits the grips.... ugh... hope he responds to my email regarding fixing it or replacing with ones that fit properly... i will keep you guys informed.

    I'm not sure I'm copying you correctly but it sure sounds wrong as you describe it. I guess speedloaders are out of the question with those grips?

    I'm thinking that he means these. They do seem a wee bit chubby in the index finger area.

    They are quite nice grips otherwise. I like them. Send them back & have him thin them out in that area.
    He sounds like an honorable person that's willing to make it right.

    I got a reply that he will refund money, but what a pain returning stuff... he obviously never actually put them on a J frame to see how they fit... utterly dissapointed. Bunker

    thanks for the head's up. I appreciate this kind of info. I work far to hard for my money to p*** it away on a lot of the inferior products out there. I recently dropped what I consider to be top dollar on a set of grips for my wife's CS9 which were a HUGE disappointment. The owner of the company offered to have them checked out at his facility, on my shipping dime. crock. At least your guy offered you your money back but still you're out the time and probably the shipping, and yes, the stress. buying piece o junk merchandise isn't fun.

    I'd go with the Hogue Rosewood Laminate.

    Altamont J frame boot grips

    I've had good luck with Altamont boot grips from the company in Illinois. They are made of dymondwood, which is very strong and durable, and always fit the J frame gun well.

    Pogo, how do those grips work with speed loaders? I've had problems with custom grips being too bulky at the top of the grip and interfering with using a speed loader.

    I use HKS model 36 speedloaders like the one below for my J frames. With these Altamont boot grips they work reliably.
