As handguns go this is one of my favorites, I like the weight and balance. It's a real fun gun to shoot but not a fan of the wood grips. Anyone else have one and change the grips to something else?

I don't have a security six, but I have 2 Ruger's [.22 conv. single six, Blackhawk .30 carbine] both have wood grips. The single six has smaller grips and is more comfortable shooting.

I find shooting the 357 mag shells the wood grips allow your hand to slide from the recoil. Not so much if I switch to the 38's.

I have a Taurus 669, ported barrel and the wood grips are not smooth. Easier to hang on to plus the porting really helps with the recoil.

I have thought about porting the barrel but it's a 1979 model and in really great shape. Thought if I just changed the grips it would keep it original.

I would just change the grips and keep the original ones. Pachmayr grips are supposed to be good.

I've got a security six, but I don't seem to have any problem with the grips and neither does my wife.

I can't get packy grips for my Gen I Security Six, I have some special wood aftermarket grips on that I remember knot the brand.

It's on the box the stock grips are in though

The main issue I had with the Security-Six was that with its super-close BC GAP, under rapid-fire with .357 Magnum loads, it would "lock up" by the third speed loader. It's kind of not the gun's fault because a larger BC gap would have solved the problem, but one must wonder how many officers relied on the Security-Six "platform" without ever knowing it would fail possibly during the second round of 6 full-house .357 Magnum shots, and definitely by the third....unless allowed ample cooling time.
