I had Cylinder & Slide do that on a 686 for me. The round butt is a much better fit for my small hands.


What might the cost be on that procedure?

Grip Update 1
I received my VZ Square's today. WOW, what a difference. I was a little apprehensive because they are the same basic shape as the target grips but they are much smaller and fit me PERFECTLY. They lock into my hand and don't move and put my grip perfectly high up. I am actually a little shocked at how much I like these since I thought I would be returning them for fear of them feeling basically like the wood target stocks. Nope I LOVE em'.

I have two sets of Badger grips on the way as well. Those, assuming they fit me well will go on the prettier blued old school guns. If I don't like them, those other guns are getting sets of VZ's.

As an aside I cannot speak highly enough about Badger grips. The quality on my Ruger grips is awesome but that is really secondary to the fact that every time you email Badger you get.......a REPLY. I know right, I'm as surprised as you. I just really want to call out the good service in any industry as it always seems so few and far between. For me Badger makes that list. Badger, TopGunSupply, SGAMMO, Crimson Trace. I have had nothing but top notch service and products from them.

Anyway here are the VZ Squares on the 66, and again I am genuinely surprised at how different and how much better they feel in my hand from the stock grips.

They are available in various materials, but I recommend the rosewood. This wood has some qualities that make it a very good grip material.

I have the same 586 as you. Love that revolver. I went with Altamont grips on mine (FWIW), but I dig your VZ ones as well.

It is mid 70's. I was with my father when he bought two different length barrel models. Came in the blue cardboard box. He bought them for duty with an Atlanta area Police Dept. and carried them daily. He sold the longer barrel model but kept this week one. Still have the box.

$136 for the round butt conversion. They ask that you pick your grips out and send them along so they get the curvature perfect.
Mine did come out perfect - I'm very impressed with the work. The downside is that their backlog is about a year now.

Wow C&S did a fantastic job on your gun.

GRIP UPDATE 2

The VZ Squares are PERFECT. I had them out to the range today and quite frankly it was a whole new enjoyable experience running this 66. Obviously grip feel is a personal thing but these things are working out great for me. What a fantastic range trip with the old girl.

I wish VZ did a conversion grip, or at least a round butt without finger grooves.

Packmyer rubber square butt grip if you want to take it shooting more often.

I collect S&W, tried a lot of different grips over time. I have some original Hogues from Mr. Hogue himself. They don't make them like that any more. They're OK, but not quite the same.

Here's a set of Mr. Hogue's work on a 29-3 Classic Hunter I had hard chromed.



These days, you can't do better than a set of Kurac coke grips from Culina

Here's a couple sets for example on a 27-2 and a 19-4.

One final update. Got the Badger grips on today. They LOOK fantastic. The fit really well. They fit just like my Ruger ones, the finger grooves match my hand perfectly.

All in all I am super happy with both the VZ and the Badger grips. I have to say I am most surprised with how much I like the VZ grips, I didn't expect them to work and I LOVE THEM.

Anyway here is a pic in the same orientation as the original with the new stocks.
