    Here's a PIC that helps to describe your question.

    I find "Round Butts" to conceal better as they allow the covering garment to "flow" over the end of the frame. In short, no sharp edges, like the "Square Butt".

    plus one on the round butt. just works better.

    You can purchase grips that will make the round butt larger if you so desire. You cannot purchase grips that will make the square butt smaller. It's a no brainer. Go for the round.

    For me it is no contest. The round butt wins hands down. Much easier to conceal.

    Round butt. Just like mine, which happens to be VERY round.....

    Too much information, I know. Sorry.
