For those of us with the Round Butt Ruger Redhawks, I found a way to fit the Pachmayr Presentation grip, so we have an option for a rubber grip.

I took a ranger band and cut it at an angle, then rolled it up and wedged it in the void of the grip. The Pachmayr grips have a metal skeleton that prevents it from deforming.

I'm sure anything could be used to fill the void though. Hope this helps.

I like it. How do you like the Presentation grips on a Redhawk? Mine is a factory square butt. I tried the Hogue Bantam Monogrip on mine and didn't like it. I prefer wood for looks, but RH grips aren't the best design.

Thanks Max, you know how it is, we make it work with what we can.

JDK, I like Hogue grips the best, except for the Bantam's, they suck.

The Pachmayr Presentations will fit nice for folks with medium to large hands, but they are a little wide for me.

I can live with it though, most guns don't fit my hands, so I've learned to improvise.

That's using your thinker. I like it.

THE PACHMAYR'S LOOK LIKE S... BUT THEY REALLY WORK. IF THERE ARE PRETTY GRIPS OUT THERE FOR THE REDHAWK THAT WUD WORK FOR ME I HAVE NOT FOUND THEM YET.

Some re[ease agent on the grip frame and some silicone caulk to fill the voids would give you a non moving grip with a precision fit. Do one grip at a time and let it set up. I like Pachmayers or Hogues on my guns as they work well for me. I look at my guns as tools and pretty is as pretty does and they look good to me. Just wish Pachmayer or Hogue made grips for a Bisley grip frame. I would buy the first one they made.

I've tried em all pretty much. The $15.00 Uncle Mikes/Butler Creeks are the best. Numrich's used to have em but they're gone now. Sometimes they come up on ebay.
