I wanted to replace the rather blocky, flat feeling straight backstrap grip with something more comfortable.

I noticed Numrich still had some palm swell grips (item # 339240) in stock for $20.00, so I ordered them.

They feel much better than the straight grip, and there is a small but noticeable contour on the sides of the grip, where the straight grip was completely flat.

Before:


After:




Just wanted to provide some photos and feedback for those of you who might be interested; there are no photos of this grip on the web that I could find.

They are S&W factory grips.

Good to know. I've been thinking of doing the exact same thing. I don't like the curved grips on the 4506 and the flat-back ones are just a tad "2x4" feeling. I like the flat over the curved, but I also knew that S&W offered the "palm swell" as the other two for the 1076/4576. It sounds much more like what I'm looking for.

Am I correct in assuming that Hogue's fancy hardwood grips won't fit the models with decockers?
What about the Hogue rubber grip?

I believe the only grip options for the frame-mounted decockers are the factory grips.
