Yea but... How do the sights line up for you? If you close your eyes, draw and bring the pistol to eye level, then open your eyes, do the sights line up vertically? The curved grip will bring the front sight up if it's low, and the flat grip will bring it down if it's high. Natural pointing is more important than looks - unless it's just a target gun. 3rd gen S&Ws are great guns.

Ironically, I just did the exact opposite thing. I replaced the straight BS grip on my 910S with a curved one for a 5906 ( they are the same frame basically size wise )
Aesthetics aside, I prefer the curved to straight. Also replaced the plastic guide rod with a SS one for a 5906.

Before...

After....

Firearm Gun Trigger Gun accessory Starting pistol


Actually more naturally pointable with the curved. To each his own.

I've never heard of straight vs. curved in that way either, but it makes kinda sense. At least, I won't dispute it.
I also have gravitated toward curved grips when available. They just seem more comfortable with the curve in the palm. I guess you can say that choice is just another reason S&W is a superior firearm. :cool:
