Have you used the speedloaders, yet. With the standard boot grips, they didn't work too well.Gunner4h1r3 said:I just got one in the matte stainless flavor and it shoots very well.
The Hogue Monogrips are definitely a good investment.
At the moment I have mine loaded with 125 grain Remmy Golden Saber .38 +P's and the same in the speed loaders (2). Picking up Magnums later today.
Shooting regular .38's feels less than a 9mm. The +P's have a bit more kick but I really couldn't tell the difference.
The Hogue grips make the 605 a baby with full powered loads. With the standard grips, the HKS speedloaders would hang up. I'm hoping the Hogue grips would make loading quicker.MakeMyDay said:I have the 3-inch 605 and am very happy with it. Better concealibility than I expected.
The posts on the Hogue grips are interesting to me. I'm using the standard grips and they're ok for me. No impediment to my speedloader.
I took an exacto knife to mine to smooth them out. Also, I cut some of the top of the grip and the backstrap away. It was kind of squared off. I rounded it out a bit which really helped out the inside of my thumb at the web of my hand. Before I did this it was taking off chunks of skin. Now it's fine. Mine came with the factory boots, I tried the factory combats, and then went back to the boots. They seem to be thicker and for me with my pinky under the grip the gun seems to point more naturally.The factory grips don't match well where they go together. They have an overlap which leaves a "very sharp" edge on them against your fingers
$250.00 is an excellent price, especially considering you got it NIB. I paid $260.00 for my Tracker .357 LNIB and it looked as though it had never been fired.texas shooter said:JohnKos I got it for $250.00 out the door NIB. Sorry about late reply been sick off the compt. I have put houge grips on it, but will shoot this weekend.
