How do you remove stock grips? What replacements are currently available?I am looking for a checkered grip,mine are like the ones on Shooboys in previous post on diassembly.Do any other S&W grips fit?I know about Pachmayers and have bid on some on ebay.
1. Make sure gun in unloaded and hammer is fully forward (if not, the hammer spring will have extra tension on the backstrap when you try to remove it)
2. Push pin out at the bottom rear of the magwell
3. Pull the bottom of the backstrap out/backwards
4. The grip panels then pop off the sides
Sorry, no idea about where or what is available for replacements.
