Grip suggestions



Log in to see fewer ads
Hi all,

After shooting my new Model 41 for about a month and breaking it in, I really like it. One issue I have though is the grip. I have small hands. In order to get my trigger finger properly placed on the trigger, I have to change my grip a bit. Its not the most comfortable way of shooting. I imagine I'll get used to it. I'm wondering if Herritts target grips or any other grips could resolve this issue. I'd like to get some feedback before I purchase grips. Thanks.

41 Grips

First, I love the S&W 41, not so much the factory grips. I have large hands, so I took a chance on Nil Target grips for Large hands. Could not be happier except that my meat hooks engage the safety several times since there is contact with my thumb. The Nil grips come in small so something for everyone. Not many stocking dealers nor many others at my local range to handle before purchasing. $250 or less if memory serves. Great feel for me.

41 grips

I have the Herretts on my 5.5 41. Really like them for bullseye shooting.

I like the Nill Sport grips I put on mine. They feel great to me but if you have small hands the Herrett Military style may be the way to go as they are much thinner.



My Nill's

I also went with the Nill grips and have been quite happy with them. I did have to do some minor fitting in order for them to seat properly. If I had it to do over again I'd go the same route.

Nills Grips

The Nills grips look very similar to the target grips that come with the gun. Is there much of a difference?

Similar size wise but a much better feel. They are pricey though at $200 plus

I'm a fan of the Herrett Trainer grip that have the slim profile of a 1911 grip... definitely friendly to smaller hands and shorter fingers. They are available in either the flat or arched back, and are about $94.00. I found my set on e-bay for less.

I added the S&W emblems. The vent rib was machined in by EWKARMS, who offers other barrel mods in addition to the rib:

I wear size small gloves and the Nill grips are perfect for me. Expensive but high quality and beautiful.

I too did not care much for the stock grips on my 41 and went with Nill adjustable target grips. Especially good for one handed bullseye shooting but I have used them for two hand shooting as well but keep in mind the left side is flat.

I have small or average size hands at best and these Nills fit my hand about as perfect as any grip I have ever used. I was able to find these on eBay for a pretty good price right about the time the online vendors raised the price of Nills dramatically.

Yup! Send Herrett's an outline of your hand (instructions should come with the order form) and they'll do you right and they'll keep that outline on file in case your order from them in the future.

The S&W factory stocks fit me fine, but if I needed to switch, Herrett's would be my move.

+1 on the Nils (which aren't as hand filing as the original grips) but for small hands the Herretts may be best.

Try the Gil Hebard '45 Trainer stocks, if they still make them. Designed to give the M41 grip a profile similar to the standard 1911. Found them a great improvement.
