    S&W 642 with ctc grips

    Does anyone know which style of the CTC grips is on the 642 in the bundle from S&W? The S&W model SKU for this 642 is 163811.

    I wonder if it is 105, 305, or 405 or something different? If it comes with the grips that are supposed to help lessen the kick I might be interested, as long as I can pocket carry it at times with these grips on there.

    Has anyone purchased this model from S&W with the grips already on there and have any thoughts on it's performance as a carry and as far as it shoots?

    The 642's I have seen at the gun show and gun store have the 305's. I am interested in the 405's myself

    This link shows the larger grip:

    The 405s are the way to go.
    I had them on a 340PD, and they are very light, small, and do a good job helping reduce recoil.

    I believe that is correct. I have the 405's, which I prefer for pocket carry.

    I just went thru this. S&W has the LG-305's on the gun when ordered. I actually ordered the 405's separately for pocket carry as they are a little smaller and was what I preferred. The gun shop swapped out the grips for me and it wind up costing me about $50 extra.

    Are there any other grips without the laser feature you can use on the 642 that can make it more comfortable to shoot? The extra $200+ is a lot if you don't plan to use the laser.

    This may be the way to go for the 442/642:

    I use the LG-105 grips on my 442. They are smaller and a harder material than the rubber grips.
    I don't find the recoil a problem and I shoot mine often with the Short Barrel Gold Dot loads.
    I normally carry the 442 in a mika pocket holster and I find the 105 grips let it slip right in and out of the pocket but still let me get a good grip for shooting.

    I use the 105 on my 642, same reasons, smaller. I use a Jerry Ahern holster, the guy that wrote the Survivalist books. I do find the recoil a little harsh with the +P loads, but nothing I can't handle.

    So another "Frank" likes the 105's......
