Rob, Awesome little revolver my friend! 👍


I'm a shooter and have minimal collector knowledge. A.J.'s correct in that I am a big fan to T-grip adapters. I've been running a set of Tyler's coupled with a set of Barami Hip Grips on my 640 Smith for a long time now (stuck in my beltline as I type this and drink my morning brew.) I find they fill in the gap under the trigger guard and help position my hand best for a rolling DA break. Love 'em.

I've carried this little 640 pretty much daily since '92. The trigger is smooth as silk from simple manual work...trigger pulling!

Heck ...Tyler T Grips go for a premium on GB because the order and response time from Tyler in OK is measured in weeks to months generally. They are "old school", but Old School Cool to me. ;)

I've recently purchased a couple of sets of T-Grip adapters from BK. Very nice and they work great. I run them on the S&W 15-5 snubbie I purchased from a friend here. It's a '72 vintage (iirc) that I replaced the springs in. Love that sucker!

Here's a couple of pics on those.

You've got a great revolver there and it would be a dream to work up some handloads for. Congratulations brother!

I have several T-grips and do like them. But the company is just barely hanging on.  It seems there was a lot of in-fighting when founder Melvin Tyler passed away some years ago. I'm not sure if its been totally resolved yet.

They will take your order. But, you can only order by snail mail. No internet orders. If you try to check on your order nobody will answer. The best you can hope for is that a package will arrive somewhere around 6-8 months later. 

Like I said, I have some and do like them for certain applications.  However, I believe the invention of the boot grip has made the T-grip obsolete.

I had on a 2nd Generation Colt Agent.  Really helped with the controlabilty, without compromising concealability.  That being said, I think I like the grips S&W are putting on their J-Frames better.  They are very grippy on my 442!

      It appears that Colt is making a new King Cobra model revolver. I saw an ad in Guns & Ammo magazine this past issue. Makes me giddy that they may reissue the Python and my fave...the Anaconda 😁

      I have 3 pistols chanbered in .357 Magum.  I have 3 rifles chambered in .357 Magnum.
      I want a .357 Magnum semi-auto.  I know, I know.  Why not get a 10mm?  Why not get a .40?  Because I reload .357, have a ton of .357 ammo and don't want to introduce another caliber.  I so eagerly want a .357 semi-auto carbine.
      If anyone else is interested in one of these conversions, please contact MechTech today and show your support.  They won't build a conversion unless you ask.  They are already doing conversions for other 1911s.  I want them to build an upper for the Coonan 1911.
      Please show your support by contacting MechTech today: https://mechtechsys.com/Contact/tabid/6648/Default.aspx
      After contacting them, please share this post to other gun blogs so the interest can spread.  I don't want to have to pay a gunsmith thousands of dollars to do this conversion for me.
      I wasn't quite sure whether to put this post in handguns or long guns forum.  Technically, it's both.
