The Shootin' Range / Re: S&W 586 grip recommendations

I found that a standard target stock, from S&W, with a lot of the wood removed was a good option for me.

The targets were too wide and too long at the bottom so I removed lumber until they were comfortable.

Yeah so I heard, dealing with an old non-heart related problem,  makes me tired, then I fell the other night, nothing broken just bruised good on the left side,  X-rays show no breaks.
Glad to hear from ya, quit fooling around, it's that cheap booze again, ain't it?
Glad nothing was broken, I know I don't bounce as good anymore either.
Temps dropped here today, just ran in the 40s, but sunny. Supposed to get a bit rainy here this weekend, which will make things interesting for Monday. We are right in the prime eclipse path and predicted to have 20,000 to 30,000 folks here on Monday which will be a bit overwhelming for our town of 7,000.

The Shootin' Range / S&W 586 grip recommendations
« Last post by Ghostdevilguy on April 03, 2024, 09:38:31 PM »
This is one of my personal favorites in my collection, and is probably going to become my carry/hiking/general use gun. It's a early 586, AEA prefix, 4" barrel, M stamp, has some honest wear, but is a solid shooter. With a butter smooth trigger in both double and singe action, the SA trigger pull is solid with no hammer pushoff, with maybe a 2lb pull and zero take up. The double action is just as smooth, it's heaver, but like butter. My only issue, it has a set of Altamont coke bottle grips. And as much as I have tried to like them, they just don't fit my hands, it feels too small in places., and puts a weird pressure on my pinkie. I've been looking at a set of g10 VZ grips, this revolver will be shot a lot. And I have g10 grips on my High power. I'm thinking maybe some old school target or combat grips. Thoughts? Opinions? Rude remarks? Photos of your 586/686 you want to show off?

Here's mine, I rescued her from a gun store last September.

50F and drizzle.   

A nice thing about having heart problems is I don't have to do work on cars, shovel snow or mow the grass. The bad thing is there is a lot of things I shouldn't do that I wish I could. :-[

Thanks Major 2, I went to bed early after taking a muscle relaxer due to inflaming my back replacing the water pump on my wife's car. Hope Y'all have a uneventful day.
