S&W 29 question

I recently picked up a mint S & W 29-2 4" in a trade for a Ruger LCR (even up). Yep, I know good deal.

Anyway, I wanted the gun primarily to carry in Bear country (I flyfish in AK and MT) and so I'll be running some heavier loads with it ( probably 300 grain Buffalo Bores). I'd like to find some grips to help absorb the recoil, I've heard the S & W 500 grips do a great job and cover the back strap but according to Smith they fit round butt guns only. The 29-2 is a square butt, any alternative suggestions?

My 4" M29 wears the old rubber pachmayr grips. They always felt great in my hand.

Hogue or Pachmayr should make a good grip for it. Look on Ebay.

I went with hogues from my LGS, they feel great, we'll see how they shoot.

Pachmayr is the best fit for me personally because I have extra large hands. You can usually find them for a decent price on Ebay, Gunbroker, or Guns America and even on Amazon. You have to try what's best for you and what fits you. Check their return policy or bring your gun in to one of the stores that carry them and have them put them on to get a feel for them. I do have an extra set if you would like to try them out first then purchase later. Give me a shout, ok?

Good Luck,

Donald
