What grips do you guys use on your revolvers? My 686 came with factory rubber/plastic black grips and they just don't work for me. Any recommendations?

Nills, Altamont, Herrett's and sometimes there are neat ones that come out of the Orient. Also factory target.

Are the Altamonts legal for the DR?

Yes, They have always been legal. It has only been about 5 years since those wrap around rubber grips the revolver came with were made legal.

IMO nothing better than stippled Nill grips.

If you don't want the expense of high falootin' grips, I'd use Pachmyers.  I have them on my revolvers, which are K frame 38 & 22.  They're a softer rubber and grip your hand well.  They have a thinner one and a regular size one.  I like the regular size since my hands are large.

Rubber grips is what I have and they are very uncomfortable, I guess I will follow Len's advice and get some Altamonts. My 686 has a square butt so unfortunately Nill stippled grips won't fit - and they are XL size, probably too big for me.

If you take your time on fleabay you can find Herrett Shooting Star stocks at reasonable prices. All of the Herrett's I have ever owned have fit the frames they were intended for very well and the NOS production grips have sharp checkering. The Shooting Star have a similar shape to the Nill grips but no finger grooves. I like to stipple all the smooth surfaces and then coat with Tung oil for good traction.

I have a collection of other grips I had to add JB Weld or Kwikwood to to take up frame to grip gaps. I have never had to do that with Herretts.

 Len I found a pair like those but my Herrets don't have the finger grooves and they don't look or feel altered.
