S&W BodyGuard 38 (hammerless)

Hi, All. I'm purchasing the BodyGuard 38 but I don't care for the default grip. Can anyone recommend a good replacement for a better grip and one that will absorb some of the recoil. Thank you!

I don't believe there are currently any aftermarket grips for the new Bodyguard 38.

Yeah, I don't think there's any other choices for grips for the BG38. If the grips are a deal breaker you'll need to look for something else- the Ruger LCR doesn't have many more options but it is a similar idea. Or a bit more cash, ditch the laser, and the 642 is also a good choice with a ton of grip options.

Look at this thread for some replacement grips and, further down, the procedure for replacing them.
Jim's Rules of Carry: 1. Any gun is better than no gun. 2. A gun that is reliable is better than a gun that is not. 3. A hole in the right place is better than a hole in the wrong place. 4. A bigger hole is a better hole.

no guns = might makes right
