A gripping story about revolver grips. And speedloaders.

Posted by:

So, you’ve got snazzy new grips on your wheelgun — congratulations!

Have you checked them to make sure that they won’t get in the way of the operation of the gun?

It’s surprising how many revolver grips, even from respected manufacturers, interfere with the use of speedloaders. Sometimes they even obstruct the ejection of fired cases! This is an especially common problem with grips on the Smith & Wesson “J” frame revolvers (like the Model 60, 640, 642, 442, and the like.)

Check your grips with your preferred loaders; make sure that they don’t bind or affect the release of the rounds into the chambers. If they do, you can usually take some material off the grips with sandpaper or a sanding drum on a Dremel. If you don’t want to go that route, you’ll need to look for grips that don’t have the problem.

Either way, check speedloader use with your grips – it’s an important part of being revolver-savvy!
