    Grips for 992 tracker

    I have a 992 tracker 6.5" that I am loving. The factory "ribber" grip is starting to look a little hammered, some of the ribbing is torn. I am looking for replacement grips and as much as I like the ribber, would like something more durable. What would you recommend?

    I'm would prefer some sort of rubber/synthetic grip. I've pretty much just seen the hogue monogrips around. Which monogrip model number is for the 992 tracker? Also, I haven't really liked grips in the past with finger grooves, they just don't seem to fit my particular set of fingers well. Any other grips out there for the 992 tracker that are rubbery and don't have finger grooves?

    Thanks in advance.

    Check Pachmayr's website. They list "Diamond Pro" grips for many Taurus Tracker models including the 991. Don't know how different from 992 that is. I agree with you on finger grooves. I like Pachmayr's signature series and have used them on a Taurus with a little modification.

    Thanks. I was out at Cabelas today and tried both the hogue and pachmayr grips for revolvers, although not for the tracker per se. I liked the way the pachmayr grips felt better, and worth the roughly $5 more IMO. will order some in from Amazon or someplace.

    Thanks for the suggestions and direction!

    Is it safe to assume that any grip that claims compatibility with the 990, 991, or 994 will also fit the 992?

    Thanks for the link.
    Was going to be my first question here.
    I bought a 990 this spring and I don't like the Ribber® grips at all.
    Was hoping for wood though.

    I have a 990 and am interested to see whether the Pachmayr are a comfortable fit.

    I thought I'd give an update, if anybody cares. I did end up getting the Pachmayer diamond pro (02473) grips for my Taurus Tracker 992. This is the correct grip for the gun, it installs easily and fits very well. Maybe too well, as once I got it on it it didn't want to come off. I applied as much force as I cared to before thinking "well, I hope I like this grip, cause it's now a permanent upgrade". Not to worry, I do like the grip - a lot. It did take some getting used to over the ribber, as the 02473 diamond pro is slightly larger in dimensions. I had shot many shots with the old grip, so was used to how that felt. I like the size of the Pachmayer grip, being a bit larger - I think it fills out the hand better. As previously mentioned, I don't normally like finger grooves, but this grip with the grooves doesn't bother me in the slightest and I don't even really notice them. I don't know if it's a superior design or if Pachmayer just got it right for my particular fingers. The rubber is fairly stiff so you can get a firm grip, but has the crucial amount of "give" to it to comfortably absorb some of the recoil (which is already pretty light for .22 rimfire). The "diamond plating" design in the rubber on both sides, along with a different pattern stamped into the rubber on the rear and in the finger grooves provides good grip, even with an amount of palm sweat accumulating. After acclimating to the new grip, my groups (shot placement) fell back into place and I find it more comfortable over longer shooting sessions. I also think it improves the look of the gun (IMO ribber isn't particularly attractive). I also was able to find it on eBay for $20 shipped, and can't believe the difference this $20 has made on my revolver, I'm kicking myself for not having done it sooner.
    For anybody considering this grip for their same gun or something similar, I can fully endorse giving it a try. If you like it even half as much as I do, it will be money well spent.
