S@W 625 hoque grips

Recommended Posts

Started shooting alot of double action only on my 625, have set of hoque grips.  My middle finger is just plain sore from shooting. I'm  using a light target load.  I've tried differnt holds- no difference.  Before I start buying and trying different grips.  Have any of you had this issue and what did you do yo solve it?   Thanks in advance.  Jim

I use the X-Frame grip on my 625-8. No issues. I have large hands, though.

Sell  them and get the Hogue Rubber Big Butt grips for the N-Frame.  You will not be punishing your hand any more.

Unfortunately, everybody's hand and pain tolerance is different.  Resign yourself to trying and owning ($) a lot of different grips.  I used Hogue fingergrooveless big butts but changed every so often.  Recently I returned to Pachmayr (sp?) grippers.  Go figure

Does the Hogue Grips you have fill in the space behind the trigger guard?

The Hogue Rubber Grips should fill in that gap, if not it will bang your middle finger into the trigger guard.

Big Butts are a lot more expensive, you might try the cheaper mono-grip from Hogue with finger grooves, if the finger grooves don't feel right you can use a dremel and remove, or smooth them out.

Why does your middle finger hurt?

Potential jokes aside, the finger grooves on most Hogue grips can be a source of real irritation if your hands don't match them exactly.  I've replaced the Hogue mono-grips on both my S&W686 and Ruger GP-100 to eliminate the finger grooves.

I have second set of monogrips,  I will try a dremel or a belt sander and take the finger grooves down.  SteelCityshooter you are right, almost makes the 625 no fun to shoot.    

Thanks for the input

Try a bandaid or tape, then after some time you won't need it. you'll become used to the grip. And I like the bigbutt X grip

It's really hard to make recommendations without understand what the actual problem is.

 

WHY does your middle finger hurt ?

 

Are the finger grooves grips ? Is your finger riding in the center of the groove or on top ?

 

Are your hands to big for those grips and your fingers are squished on to tight ? 

 

Are the grips to thin causing a strange pinch point or excessive wrap around ?

 

Improperly gripping? Are you not gripping hard enough causing the gun to jump around in your hand and rub in a sore spot ?

 

If you haven't already, Try a NON finger grooved model, that's sized to your hand. You can do this by simply tracing your hand and sending it in to the custom shop, contact some people at hogue and they can walk you through getting a grip sized to your hand.

 

Alternatively, find a dealer that stocks multiple grips and give them a feel before deciding. They are all a little different

 

Another option is to grab a few files and sand paper and go custom yourself, the nice thing about wood grips is that you can remold them and refinish them, do what's comfortable for you

You can sand down the finger grooves some and that may help or you can actually buy a set that doesn’t have the finger grooves in them. The finger grooves never fit me right so I always smooth them down or buy ones that do not have them in it.

I had the same problem, what was happening was the knuckle of was getting banged by the grip under the trigger guard. I tryed filing down that part of the grip, did not work. Went to hogue rubber grip no finger groves with big butt cured the problem

Thank you guys for all the help.  (not sure about the "not telling gender" guy)  Took a set of grips down with a dremel and sanded them smooth.  Going in the right direction but I am ordering the hoque big butt, no finger grooves as many of you have recommended.  

Thanks again

Jim

Are you taking about the irritation on the top of your middle finger,  the part between your middle and index finger?  The knuckle that rides right under the trigger guard?  

Not to be flippant, but the only solution is to shoot more.   Seriously, It will go away.

So how big of a difference does the Hogue rubber big butt grips make in felt recoil, and does the big butt help in keeping a high grip on the draw?

The rubber grips take a lot of punishment out of shooting.  Big difference from wood grips.   The Big Butt do help keep your grip high on the draw and are perfect for those time you need to go prone.

AzShooter so you would recommend buying these grips? What about finger groves yes or no? I have medium to small hands.

I don't like the finger grooves. They don't fit my hand well.  With the non grooves I get a better grip every time.

I have a set on all my competition revos.

The 625s move when you shoot them. You need to hold on tighter than you think you do. Major power factor in a fixed breech gun will make you more tired at the end of the day.

I think the nerve / tendon from middle finger to wrist gets rubbed raw.  It will only get worse and eventually lock up.  You need to change something.

Grips, power factor, caliber, whatever.

 

I think this is known as trigger finger.....Really  (reliable doctor told me) .   I can't shoot 45 Revolver any more.

Thankful for 38 Super , 357, 22, 40S&W
