The PD is built on the smaller model 85 frame, not the larger Tracker frame. I'm not aware of a smaller or 'boot' grip made, at least by Taurus, for the medium frame revolvers. In fact, I'm not sure anybody makes such a grip, at least I haven't seen one.

I have a 455 that I would love to find a wood boot grip for. haven't had any luck as of yet.

I'm sure Taurus would have to change the grip frame ..on Medium Frame revolvers...but a Compact grip would be a sweet option

Well to the best of my knowledge, the frame sizes for Taurus® Revolvers; smallest to largest are..........
• Small Frame - 85,
94, 605, 732, 905, 941, etc..
• Compact Frame - 405, 415, 425, 455, 617, 627, 817, Tracker Series, etc..
• Medium Frame -65, 66, 82, etc..
• Large Frame - 44, 416, 444, 454, 513, 608, etc.
(Caveat -Large Frame and the "Raging Series" are essentially the same size)

As a general rule, grips with in frame size, say Small size Mdl #85, 605, & 905; ARE fully interchangeable. Grips across frame sizes, such as Compact size Mdl 617 and Medium size Mdl 82; ARE NOT interchangeable.

Anyone feel free to correct me if I am mistaken.

i think it would be nice to have a 445 UL with a shorter grip frame ,compact similar to whats on the Public Defender..it would make the 445 UL so much more concealable...

What grips will fit a Taurus 85 revolver ? S&W 'K' perhaps ? I wanted to get some oversize wood grips for my model 85, but don't know what grips will fit. Thanks, George
