    What Grips For A S&W 340 M&P??

    I just purchased a S&W 340 M&P today. I haven't put any rounds through it yet. Just letting it 'settle' into its new holster.

    I've noticed that the Hoag rubber grips it comes with are a bit small for my hand. (I'd really hate the bite of .357 Mag loads --- I'm certain of that!!)

    Any suggestions for good replacement grips?? Larger, smooth, nice wood grain would suit me just fine. (I know it would take away a bit from the good concealability of the pistol but I'd be willing to sacrifice a little for a little more 'purchase' with my grip).

    Thanks.

    I replaced my J-frame grips with a set crom CrimsonTrace with the laser installed. Another thought is to look around at gun shows as you'll occasionally find a larger set of wood grips from the older days.

    Try the two main Crimson Trace grips. The 305's are a little bigger and offer more control as opposed to the 405's. But you loose some concealability.

    Thanks.

    I have a set of Crimson Trace grips on a Colt, Delta Elite, 10mm and find that I have to 'think about' the position of my hand to fully activate the laser.

    I'm really wanting some nice wood grips. Maybe Esmarelda?? (SP??)

    Pachmayr Compacs on 442 pre lock nickel.
    Just a little too big for my pocket, covers the back strap,
    the rubber grabs fabric a lttle, but VERY comfortable.
    If my pockets were a half inch deeper,
    they would be on all my J Frames.
    Uncle Mike's Boot Grips on my 340 PD. No fabric grab.
    The Bantams that came on the gun grab the fabric too.
    I have a set of Spegels. Beautiful, but they are thicker
    than the Uncle Mikes and a little too slippery,
    due to the smooth wood.

    Thanks, Coach ---- I'll look into those. The 'fabric grip' of these Hoags is pretty noticable.
    I took the pistol to the range today and was surprised that the grips were fairly comfortable --- even with .357 loads.

    I like the Pachmayr's, but have been interested in getting a set of the Uncle Mikes.

    I've got the smaller CT (405) on my 340 M&P. The larger ones inhibit pocket carry. IMO and the smaller ones are just fine and allow you concealment AND comfort.

    Danimal...I'm curious, What is the plate/shield attachment on the right side of your 340? I never seen one of those before.

    It looks like a belt clip?

    It is a 1st Generation Clipdraw.

    I have also used the universal ones on other revolvers, and autos. The double sided tape is insanely strong.
