OMG...love these grips

These will be my competition grips.

Love them. Sticky, comfy and no need to do any work on the gun.

Pachmayr!

I truthfully have not seen a set mounted in over 20 years. I thought they were long gone. I tried a set. They lasted one day. The rubber was so tacky it grabbed and pulled my cover garment up while IWB. Glad they were cheap!

Have these on both my Pro carry & the ones with thumb swell on the custom 2, great grips.

Son has a set with finger grooves, I do not like those, mine are like the ones on that Ruger.

It makes me smile to see someone choose function over "bling".

I had a pair on a 1911 I used in IDPA matches. I replaced them after the first summer match because the sweat from my hands made them extremely slippery.

There are three versions of the Pachmayr 1911 wrap around Signature grips.

http://www.brownells.com/handgun-par...-prod9764.aspx

Thumb rest

No thumb rest and scallop for thumb

No thumb rest or scallop

The wrap around front strap assists control (as does front strap checkering).

They also have a MSH that matches the grip panels and at one time a rubberized grip safety.

I still have a my original USPSA single stack, 1980's S/A set up this way and three Pachmayr magazines. Still a viable piece when shooting Super Senior Single Stack!

That's the way old guys roll! I never found them to become slippery. I still have a set on a an gun I shoot every week. The points from the "checkering" are worn smooth the same as one of my "go to" K frame competition revolvers.

All the best,

I've got a set with thumb rest minus the front strap cover on my ole .38 Super race gun. Front strap is checkered. They were only available one way back then AFAIK. I'd have gone for the one with the scallop if it was available and I knew about it.

They are still being made and available at Brownell's.

I had those grips on my Colt Gov Model when I worked in Patrol. The grips, along with a Pachmayr GS and MSH. It wasn't the prettiest 1911, but it never slipped out of my hands.

Funny this just came up.
Saturday, my younger brother picked my Sistema that is sporting Pachmayr's.
His first response was, "wow! These thing are really grippy!"

I went through my rubber grip phase back in the '80s

OK, I admit I have them on a couple revolvers because they were there when I acquired the guns.

I still run Hogue Monogrips in my revolvers.

IMHO, there's no better grip for actually shooting a revolver. For BBQ's and picture taking there are much nicer looking grips.

I completely agree!
But I run my guns so I'm happy with the Hogue's.

That was when the Pachs were the cat's meow. Times have changed. Now I can tell someone on the range with them is either an old shooter who is happy with them or some fool who reads old pistol magazines. Rubber is great on tires, not so good if you carry your weapon. Worst possible choice to prevent cover garments from snagging. Today's micarta and G10 materials are not only easier to carry comfortably, but give much better grip and traction with no rubber problems.

I've recently switched over to G10 variants for these reasons.

The G10 will grab garments but not as bad as rubber IMO.
