100 people on here and no one knows???
Hey. Wantin different grips on my j frame model 438 s&w .38. Special.
Mine has wat I'm assuming is square butt grips. I see J frame houge and pachmayr grips. Will any that's for j frame work?
Does square or round butt make a difference or since mines square do i have to stay with square?
which grips are better, comfier? Just want a more absorbing maybe slightly longer grip. Tnx all, hg
There is a big difference in round vs. square but, I strongly doubt your gun has a square butt, but I could be wrong.
Check out Hogue and Pachmayr for round butt J-Frame grips, there's also VZ Grips. A lot of revolver guys swear by Eagle Grips.
FWIW I like the Pachmayr Compac grips for small revolvers.
Can you post any pics of your gun? Or go back and look at the model number and tell us it's a 438-___ fill in the blank. Not sure if the 438 was ever offered in a square but config....
Early model J frames may have a square butt or a round butt but all later models have round butts. If you just purchased a new J frame it's a round butt. Va's got you covered on selection. I as well prefer Pachmayr on snubbies.
