FlaresideFord recently posted a comparison of the grips available for the Taurus 605 small frame revolver:
https://www.taurusarmed.net/forums/taurus-revolvers/186785-taurus-small-frame-grip-comparison.html

This started me on a search for the Uncle Mikes combat grip. I tried the ATI X grip and while it did fit(with some frame pin modifications), it put my hand too high and caused severe knuckle knocking. Too painful to train with. So I began a search for a resolution, After weeks of searching I lucked into an auction on ebay for an old new stock Uncle Mike's small frame combat grip.

Eureka it works great. Now my 605 is as comfortable to shoot as a S&W model 60. No more knuckle knock, full three finger grip, and decent recoil absorption from the rubber material. While my full power 357 loads still leave my hand with a bit of a buzz, I can shoot them much easier than before. I ran 35 rounds of 357 today along with 50 rounds of misc 38 special. No problems with the revolver or my hand. Finally I have this little wonder tuned to perfection. The trigger job I did, brought the DA pull down to a smooth 8lbs and the SA pull a quick 3.5lbs. In this configuration accuracy is outstanding for a snubby. The part number for the Uncle Mike's is 59008. All I had to do was size the frame pin to fit, and it installed easy.

Nicely done and a fine-looking snubby you have there.
