The new one is tiny. I'll shoot it in a few days and see if I like it.

And I forgot to include my Alaskan, which is Huge compared to all others.

Very nice, I like the idea of the rubber grips on your 29, would make it much more enjoyable to shoot. Beautiful guns.

All grips are stock, except on the Ruger. For magnum revolvers rubbers are mandatory. Even the snub nose abnormally large Alaskan is okay with the rubber grips. May not be pretty, but they are practical.

One thing I forgot to mention, the trigger on the 686, is incredible. Light and crisp like nothing else I've ever felt. The big 29 was my trigger standard before, with 100s and 100s of firings. Still great, but is now a 2nd to the virgin 686.

I have a old 29-2 with wood grips and want some rubber ones for it. I dont really like shooting it with the wood grips. I love the gun.

I agree with you MontanaResident!
I have wood grips for my 686 and 629 for show I put the Hogue rubber grips on for Shooting.

Very nice revolving gun collection you have there, MR. Are the wood grips that uncomfortable? I was thinking about getting a 44 mag snubbie with the beautiful combat wooden grips.
