Taurus 605 Grip Questions

Hey all, I recently got a Taurus 605 in SS. I want to change the grips from the factory one to a set of wood grips from Pachmayr Renegade's. Here are my questions:

1) How difficult is it to switch these out (any tips?)?

2) How well do they conceal/print (with an IWB holster) compared to the factory Grips?

I'm sure I'll have more questions soon.

Thanks so much for all your help!

Greg

Trivial.

You'll probably need to find a different (shorter) crosspin, if the grip you're replacing is the current plastic bull head grip. The current grip uses that pin to hold the grip in place, and it will likely be longer than what you'd need.

That grip? No idea. Probably OK.

Hope you are a caveman, because it's so simple, a caveman could do it!

Here's a YT video showing the installation on a Taurus 85, but it's probably exactly the same.
Shows that the Pachmayrs come with a new roll pin.

They don't look any smaller than the original grips, bulk wise.
