I got a Pachmayr gripper grip from an eBayer that is for K frame round butt S&W. My understanding (as well as the seller's) was that it would fit L fram too. My S&W 686 is an L frame with round butt and originally came with Uncle Mike's rubber boots.
The Pachmayr rubber fits perfectly but the screw is hitting the flat spring inside the grip! Uncle Mike's has a lot more clearance around the screw. I am able to put the screw through the Pachmayr but the thread will get stripped soon so I don't want to force it.
Am I alone with this problem? Did I get an older version of the Pachmayr? The inside only says Smith & Wesson K round butt. Whenever I see it advertised both K and L frames are mentioned.
Any help or advice would be appreciated.
It turns out the seller is refunding my money (I sent the grips back).
