There are some georgous 617 grip pics on this forum. Might do a search or someone will be along to point you the right way. As far as the loader, I've been using hks with the stock grips. Different grips might be an issue.

I have Hogue Rubber Grips and HKS Speed Loaders work. So do Speed Strips.

All my Taurus revolvers the size of the 617 have wooden Thai grips. It's hard to beat them, except for the time it takes for them to arrive. Get them on eBay.

By the way, anything that will fit the Judge should also fit the 617. It might be easier to find grips specifically sold for the Judge than for the 617. Other models of the same size are 405, 415, 455, 450, etc. There's a bunch of them.

BigPappa, Hogue rubber grips are Model SKU #73000, for Tracker/Judge, $26.95. I have them on my on my Model 415 and they are extremely comfortable. With that said, I prefer wood, but haven’t been able to find any, so I use the Hogue.

I tried a set of the Hogue rubber monogrips to replace the stock "ribbed" rubber grips on my 617Ti. They were just a bit too large for my taste.
So I went with a set of these older style 3-finger pebble-textured grips that Taurus used to put on their revolvers.

They are inexpensive, compact, and comfortable. They cover the backstrap and the rubber is soft enough to absorb a lot of recoil, but not so soft and grippy that they grab clothing.
Works for me....

I highly recommend Altamont Company if wood grips are what you seek.

I got a pair of Altamont Super Rosewood Grips for my Judge (which also would fit the 617) and I absolutely love them.



They're not as cheap as some other grips at $60, but they're easily worth the money, plus they're American made so you're supporting national business and won't have to wait long for them to arrive at your door like you would for imported grips.
