I just can't seem to find a grip for the Redhawk I am happy with. The factory wood stock grips actually feel pretty good, but it will whack my middle finger when I shoot it. The full size Hogue grips are way too big for my hand (and I got a pretty fair sized hand), and the bantam Houge's that came with my 4 inch Redhawk are close to feeling good, but they are still just now quite right. That grip lowers the gun in my hand and puts the hump of the backstrap right on the tender part of the palm. What I have been thinking is the factory wood grip with a Tyler T adapter, or does anyone make a grip styled like the factory grip, but one that covers the trigger guard so as to protect the middle finger? Would a grip such as this lower the gun in the hand as much as the Bantam Houges? I have googled Redhawk grips and come up with all kinds of sites, but nothing I went to is quite what I want. Any suggestions, gentlemen?

I'd try Pachmayr....their grips tend to run a little less front to back...and you could Dremel off the finger grooves to reduce it a bit more...I saw a thread on that awhile back...maybe a year ago....or you could get one of these guys here to make you a custom set...that'd be more fun.....

Well, I actually did dremel off the bottom finger groove some. It is pretty thin in that area, as it is covering the front of the frontstrap, and I am hesitant to remove any more rubber. The Pachmayr's I have tried in the past (never tried one for the Redhawk) have always proven to not fit my hand as well as Hogues. And while having a custom set made would be great, I can't afford them right now (quit my job, remember?!?)

It's a beast to find good aftermarket grips for the RH. I'm lucky that I really like the stock grips. They look great and feel real good too. The recoil doesn't really bother me either. I think if you got the T-grips you'd be happy.

visit a gunshow or two.......

ya should be able to find some used pachmayr presentation and gripper grips there for next to nothin'.....

most folks around still used the old pach presentation grips and while they might feel a bit large, they do keep the recoil down a bit.

tyler "T" grips are always nice and if ya look hard, pachmayr also made their own "T" grip version out of plastic-----and quite a bit cheaper and a bit more flared around the trigger guard from memory.........
