Decoding Pachmayr grips for HP




So, after all the fuss with grips I am going to slap a set of Pachs on my last all stock HP (it has cheap plastic panels). There are a few different models and Pach's website is of little help.

Anybody know which model would be front wrap around (not finger grooves) with flat sides (no indent, no bump)?

Thanks

You can certainly get them in the flat-front wraparound (no finger grooves) style, but I don't believe they make them without the thumb swells/rests. My recollection may be out-of-date, though.

Every set I've seen has the thumbrest bump. A few minutes with a Dremel or a rasp and sandpaper lowers the bump nicely.

Best Regards,

If you go to Pachmayr's website and select for the Browning High Power the model B-HPC 03951 you'll get the version with sculptured thumb reduction. I think that's the closest you can get to flat sides. *

Well, that certainly explains why I can't find them :P
What confuses me is that GM-45C has flat panels but HP-C version is different. Boo!

I am looking for thin, so I think it will be another set of Navidrex.

Thanks for the help!
