Anyone make grips OTHER THAN RUBBER

Anyone make grips OTHER THAN RUBBER for the S&Ws that have been made with ROUND butts to make them into ....square.... handles?

I have a 63 in .22 and a 66 that I would really like to have hand filling SQUARE grips on.

Don't care what material so long as not prone to rot (or soften..ugh)

Prefer wood...but consider anything like G-10 or ????

You could find some stabilized wood [vacuum impregnated with acrylic ] and make them .I use that on all my custom knives.
My 35 year old Pacmyer grips are neoprene IIRC and still in perfect shape on my 44 mag.
I do not suggest finger grooves unless they fit your fingers !!!

Hogue hard synthetic

Strangely enough, I have a set of Hogues, that are hard black synthetic. I have no idea where I got them or if they are still being made. ....

Be Safe !!!

Team Miculek sells a couple of different grips for the S&W guns. I believe they're made by Hogue.
Did you know that there is a TEXAS State Rifle Association?
