Do you like the Packmayr grips or not? Can you explain why or why not. This girl has got to know!! Did I just put a trailer trash grip on my beauty or is she going to be ok? lol!
Umm, I'm kinda torn on this subject...
They are very comfortable and good grips. I also prefer them over other rubber grips.
The only thing that I do not like about them is that they use brass inserts molded in the rubber and after a while those will start to work themselves out of the rubber on the back of the grips (where the grips come in contact with your gun frame). Mine started to mar the finish of my guns frame (underneath the grip - you cannot see the marring while the grip was installed, but it was there and being done nevertheless). Bugged me.

Only Pachmayr I like is Grippers on a TC Contender.

I know I liked the larger on my Python vs the smaller, but ditched them (came with both) for Hogues.

Try both sets, and use the ones you like best.

I can truthfully say I would love to replace mine with

Hogues, but that is personal preference. I don't

detest the Pachmayrs to the point I would replace them

with wood, or anything else, just the Hogues.
