1006 grips/wanted to buy
« on: October 07, 2016, 09:00:26 AM »
Seeing as I've chosen to keep my S&W 1006, I want to explore grip options. I've tried several over the years, somehow ending up with 3 of the Delrin straight backs, one Delrin curved back, Hogue full grips and rubber sleeves. A few years ago I learned of a third Delrin grip from S&W, which had some sort of a palm swell molded into it. Of course they are no longer available (typically I am a day late and a dollar short)

Does anyone here have one of these? Would you be willing to send some photos? I have a delrin-like material that could be molded onto one of the straight backs to increase the width at the back of the grip. I like the width in that area found on the Hogues, but overall they are a bit bulky in my hands. I may end up putting a sleeve over the entire thing if it won't stipple or looks too obviously a Bubba-smithed modification.

Thanks in advance.

PS. Do any of the Kydex 1911 holsters fit a 1006?

I guess I should have added that if anyone has one of these they'd be willing to sell, well heck that'd be too easy. I could probably part with a few dollars instead of spending hours trying to re-invent a wheel.

Thanks Shadow

The differences are subtle but that's often the case with inter-changeable back straps as seen on polymer framed pistols. To be honest it's less than I expected. Still I can see a width difference and the front-to- back change could be a Goldielocks situation.  This will add to my over - Winter projects and if this works I'll try to post a picture. This brain storm came to me in the early hours this morning, so who knows how it will look in full daylight.

Thanks again.
