    Hate 'em but have come to use 'em. Now three favored concealed carry revolvers are wearing T-Grips.

    When a person has large hands with long fingers yet doesn't desire the bulk or clinginess of current rubber grips then the T-Grip really does afford an alternative that provides for a really good grip on the revolver. Control in double-action shooting and recoil recovery are both enhanced. It took me over 30 years to hold my nose and try one because I think they are so downright ugly! Others think they look all retro.

    Smith & Wesson Model 642 with T-Grip. Both my wife and I think this revolver is more shootable and well-mannered with the T-Grip installed along with the older walnut J-Frame stock panels.

    Thanks! Does the T-Grip interfere with the stock grips at all?

    Nope, I have 'em on a S&W M12. As said above, it gives a preferred grip profile of some aftermarket offerings, without any rubbery grab. But I don't think anything that WORKS can be deemed ugly. Tyler T Grips work!

    Thanks for the input, I'm thinking of putting one on a S&W 64.

    I had BK Grips (similar to T-Grips) on my S&W Model 12. It was a great addition that let me keep the original grips on the gun. Plus t-grips are thinner and conceal better.

    Have both t grips and bk grips. Both work well. Bk grips are less expensive, easier to order, and arrive quickly, and are polymer. T grips are a little better looking and metal, and take longer to get/order.

    The time and the price are the biggest problem with the T gtips. They work just fine, and I have them on several revolvers. I did have one old dinosaur cop tell me they were told not to use them in the old days because they could slip off if you were in a weapon retention kind of fight for your gun. Not sure how valid that is, and it didn't stop me from using them.
    Try not to screw up so bad they name the screw up after you. (Station 15 saying)

    I find them useful with round butt revolvers such as the J frame and the L frame S&Ws I have shown here.

    That's the style of the Ruger LCR grip, and the very reason I didn't buy one, at least not yet. It just doesn't feel right in my hand.

    Those all plastic fillers that kind of looked like Tyler grips were made by Pachmyer. They also sold them with the S&W logo.

    That doesn't look bad, that is exactly what mine will look like (except for the hammer)...thanks!
    What kind of holster is that? I'm also looking for a holster for 64.

    That holster was made by Hays Holsters ("Haystacker" on this forum). His website says that he's not currently taking orders because he's moving to Colorado. As soon as I see that he's taking orders again, I'm ordering another one for my GP100.

    I recommend him highly. Good work and quick turnaround. Here's his website.
