eBay is a good source. Just don't go overboard with your bidding. Remember there will always be another auction coming up.

Yep, been watching. But please excuse me but what am I looking for? Round butt or square butt?

Depends on your gun. At this point, only you and your gun know. /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif If the metal grip frame is exposed at the bottom of your original stocks and is rounded like the stock corners, it is round butt. If your current stocks wrap under the bottom and the metal stops short front and back, it is short square butt, the later configuration. I believe Pachmayr grips in general accomodate both styles. /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif

This would be a round butt, although older than yours.

Ken, I also love my Detective Special. It's the best shooting snub nose I own. Fun and accurate. Mines a early square butt.

Oooops. I checked some of my Pachmayrs and they are cut out for the short butt only. I know I have seen some otherwise. Let me check around. /forums/images/graemlins/blush.gif

OK, the Pachmayr Presentation target size stocks are cut out for both, but the Presentation Compaqs and even Grippers that I have are not, apparently because of the "combat" style pinky indent. Sorry to mislead.

Thank you very much. I just can't seem to get any.

Not to confuse the issue, but Badger's are nice too. Again, neither indicates on their website whether any model accommodates the round butt. I suspect the Badger boots might not, but the standards might. You would have to ask. When you find out, don't forget to tell us. /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

Note where the Badgers are made.

I know these aren't what you are looking for, but if you ever intend to carry the Cobra concealed you might also check out the "Barimi Hip Grips"

I have 2 old Cobras, one of which I use as my hidden vehicle firearm. It's stashed away neatly concealed, but with easy accessibility. I keep Barami Hip grips on it in case I have a vehicle breakdown and have to walk for help or something.

The BHG's allow you to just ease the firearm into your waistband, pull your shirttail, coat, whatever, over it, and you are good to go.

The BHG's won't win any beauty contest, but I can assure you I haven't found an easier way to carry a revolver concealed for such situations as I mentioned.

They don't cost much.

Best Wishes,

J.P.
