    S&W Model 36.......Reload Question.

    Have had my Model 36 for over 30 years.....just a classic revolver.
    But when I try to reload usuing my HKS Speedloader, it doesn't clear my grips for a fast and smooth reload. I have to jockey the speedloader into the cylinder and practically pry it out.
    Over the years I've used the stock S&W Round Butt Grips the gun came with.
    S&W Wood Bannana Grips, Pachmyer Rubber grips that I just love but won't let the speedloader work smoothly either....

    Sooooo....a little help here please....what grips for a Model 36 can I buy that would allow for smooth, fast reloading with a speedloader ?

    xXxplosive,
    I have had Pachmayr Compac grips on my 36 for years and have zero troubles with HKS speed loaders. The left grip is molded to clear speed loaders. The lower one in the illustration. Item No. 03252, Compac SJ-C

    I can't get the pic to come up on the link, but if you go to the link and use the chart you can get a pic. Plug in S&W, "J" frame and square or round butt.

    Here is a pic showing the left side grip and the recess for the speed loader.

    Have had the pachmyer compac style for years on the gun and love'em............but could never use the reloader with them without pushing, and prying the loader out of the cylinder as the grips wouldn't allow for a straight entry............maybe these new one's are a bit different. To bad they don't display the left cylinder side of the grip on the picture.
    Thanx.....

    I had the same problem with the stock grips on the 642. Hogue grips cleared it right up.
