I have a Police Positive MK5 and would like to replace the original rubber grips with Hogue rubber grips...two questions
1. The grips I found are for the DS, Cobra etc "D" frame models post 1969. Am I correct in assuming they will fit the PP MK5 also?

2. How do I remove the grip pin? I gave it a few taps, but stopped when I noticed it was peening.

Thanks

removed pin on my diamondback to put on Hogues with great difficulty.Beat it out and broke the bolt from impact I guess.I would suggest you press it out as it is TIGHT fit.Good luck!

I have Hogue wrap-arounds on my Det.Sp. To remove the grip pin, I used my shop vise. I placed the open end of a 1/2" socket over the pin and tightened the vise until the pin was almost flush wirh the grip. Then I used a small pin punch to finish removing the pin. Hope this helps.

Thanks for the advice. The vise and socket technique worked although it took a lot of force.
