    I now own a S-W 617 and a Ruger super redhawk. I love revolvers andshoot them well (IMHO). one issue I am having is that both guns trigger guards cut into my shooting hand middle finger near the 1st joint. the resulting pain ruins the experience. I noticed that my DW 715 has great grips that partially cover the back and bottom of the trigger guard=no pain

    pachmayr and hogue grips doe not have the extended trigger guard coverage I need( pachmayr made some great decelerator grips. not available anymore for my revolvers.

    so I am asking anyone if they know of a company that makes grips that look like these:

    or have any other suggestions of rubber grips that will relieve the pain I experience when shooting these wonderful revolvers

    One year I shot 36,000 rounds through this 617 (I failed, as the project's intent was to shoot 52,000 rounds) and with these grips I maintained comfort and accuracy. The gun is a round butt frame, these grips are those conversions to square butt. Don't know manufacturer as I picked them up at a gun show.



    Don't have experience with the Super.

    S+W cs suggested a few grips. one set of hogues seem right. might get a set of hogues for the ruger super redhawk. worth a try. I need soft grips to protect my aching finger

    @Scaramouche, your grips look to me a lot like these - Deacon Deason Bear Hug Grips. I sold this set to an esteemed fellow Addict.
