    S&W Model 69 and Pachmayr grips

    I ordered the Pachmayr Presentation grade for a L frame. The grips came but when I took the grips off the pistol I found it had a round butt. I looked at several sites and cannot find any Presentation grade grips for a 69.
    I am going to try the factory grips but they seem a bit small.
    Suggestions?

    I like the Hogue rubber grips w/o the finger grips. Click image for larger version.

    I have the s&w 500 X frame grips on mine. They tame the recoil and give a little larger grip.

    Does Hogue sell the x frame grips outright, or do we still have to go thru S&W?

    "The grips came but when I took the grips off the pistol I found it had a round butt."

    Now you have learned a valuable lesson. Know what you need before you order or buy.
    I have found the factory grips on the 4.2 inch M69 gun is very nice. I even ordered a set to put on my 2.75 inch M69.
    Take the gun out and shoot it to see if you need to start fiddling around with other grips.
    We Know Mass Cannot Be Weighed But It Has Newtonian Weight And That Is Derived From Kilograms And Kilograms Can Be Converted to Pounds. But, Still Mass Cannot Be Weighed. But How is the kilograms obtained? Can Kilograms Be Weighed? Evidentally Yes It Can. But, Still Mass Cannot Be Weighed So Kilograms Must Not Exist. Funny Isn't It.
    One good thing out of this the next time I'm at the doctors and they want to weigh me I'll tell them mass cannot be weighed.

    My 69 wears a set of the Pachmayr Compacs and they make heavy loads more endurable.

    I canít help with the Pachís. However, properly fitted grips made my M69 a lot more fun to shoot. Herrett Jordan Troopers really made this gun my favorite woods revolver. My two N Frames also wear the same grips. All of my other J/K/L Frame sweat Tyler T and Magna combos. Hope you find something that works. Enjoy that M69

    I have a set of Pachmayr Presentations on my 4" model 69. Square butt grips will fit a round butt gun, but not the other way around (obviously.)

    After trying the factory grip on my 69 ,and my favorite Hogue rubber grips with finger groves , Pachmayer diamond pro,and a set gripper grips I had lying around, the gripper worked the best for me , I'm 1/2 tempted to try the Gripper Decelerator !

    For some reason my finger bone of my middle finger gets a rap from the back of the trigger guard when shooting so I need the area behind the trigger completely filled in even with the bottom of the trigger guard !
    I have Hogue grips on all of my other S&W handguns with no problem , I even had a 3" 629 with no problems
