    The Pachmayr principle

    I have this 4-inch Colt Diamondback...a beautiful revolver,, the "mini" Python that I sometimes carry, but not often because the factory grips, while pretty, just didn't feel right. So I slapped on a set of Pachmayr rubber grips and boy what a difference.

    I had Pachmayrs on my 2 1/2-inch Model 19 S&W for several years until Rod Herrett built a set of handsome wood grips that I couldn't resist.

    I had Pachs on two of my .41 Magnums for a long time, too. They really soak up the recoil.

    The .38 Special is still a pretty decent round, and that Diamondback gets the most out of it.

    Anybody else discovered Pachmayrs?

    Oh yes, many years ago. They've been dampening recoil for a long time. My old Charter Arms .44 Bulldog with a 3" barrel wears the compact Pachmayrs. On that gun, they make a heck of a difference.

    Recently noticed that the exact Pachmayr slip-on I bought for my LCP is nolonger available. There is however a newer modle but I like the old style much, much better.

    I installed a set of Pachs on my .41 Blackhawk years ago and they tore my hand up. Went back to the wood ones with no problems. But what didn't work for me may be the magic answer for someone else.

    Have Pachmayrs on my j frame-helped out tremendously in soaking up recoil (the 'gripper' variety).
