I ordered a set of Sile grips from CDNN. For only $8 they are a nice upgrade from the stock S&W grips if you have large hands. The oversize grips cover the back strap and lengthen the reach to the trigger.
I had to do some minor fitting to get them just right.
Man that's a good looking grip....will it fit the 38 S&W 638 airweight? And where did you find these for $8?

I got them from here
Smith & Wesson J Frame RD Oversize Checkered Walnut Grip Replacement
they fit all J frames
They are nicer than the picture in the add. I just had to deepen the hole for the grip pin on them.
How do they work with speedloaders?

HKS speedloaders are tight, but do work.
i think J frames are more at home in a pair of boot grips
Nice grips and for $8 man thats a steal!
Hey I have a question KIND of relevent to this topic. My 642 kills my hand, small hand syndrome maybe, with the stock rubber grips, my dad has above average hands at 6'4. Do these take away a lot of the recoil as well?
I find the wider longer grip does spread out the recoil better, but the recoil did not bother me with the stock grips. I have big hands and wanted grips to lengthen the trigger reach to fit me better, these do that very well.
Nice looking grips. Incredible price.
I guess the $7 dollar grips would be no loss even if they didnt do away with the recoil problem. I love the gun for the conceal situations, especially in summer. I just cant hardley practice with it for more than about 5 rounds. Im not very accurate with it because of the recoil and the horrible trigger. Anyway, I'm gonna pick up the grips, thanks for the link.
I got them in the mail wensday I think and they really work, just got back from the range about 2 hours ago and it had to have cut the recoil by atleast 40%. It was amazing. It was $8 well spent, thanks for the tip! By the way, they are ugly as sin but who cars LOL.
I wound up with a pair Siles pictured in the ad, the rubber ones, for my 642. The back strap covered to improve trigger reach (6ft2) and recoil, and longer on bottom for room for my finger. I have used about a half dozen different grips, this has been the best compromise of features and size (still goes in a pocket) that I have found.
