I also tried Hogue grips. They did not fit well, actually to loose and near my thumb there is a little spot where the grips do not fully cover the skeleton steel grip.

Called Armscor, they said there black finger grooved grips were plastic and they told me Pachmayr Grips would fit perfect and they did. They feel great and very easy to put on, I highly recommend them.

Here is my Armscor M206 before and after pics:

Fired it yet? Any issues?

08-27-2010, 7:54 PM
Have not fired it yet. Going to the range next week. Will let you know how it handles. I am also going to take some video and post it on YouTube.

Looks nice !

08-27-2010, 8:18 PM
Looks good! Did you have a lot of problems getting the grips on?

08-27-2010, 8:28 PM
Wow that makes the gun look much better.

With the before pics I would never buy that, but now it seems good :)

I've handled it with those stock grips. For me, it was like jumping into a pool full of noodles:

Unexpected, Uncomfortable, and Uninvited. :D

Those look a lot better, for sure. Love to try out a piece with those on.

Grips were very easy to install and do feel much better. I have read about people not liking the way this revolver shoots with stock grips. I am sure I would be one of them. This weapon does look much nicer now.

Are those grips custom made for the Armscor?

08-28-2010, 10:11 AM
Where can I get an Armscor?

08-28-2010, 1:13 PM
Those look like Pachmay's Gripper and those are, IMO, the best rubber grips you can put on a DA revolver.

Where can I get an Armscor?

You live in a free state.... is your question rhetorical? :D

These are Pachmayr Gripper Grips. Will fit all Colt Diamondback, Detective Special, Cobra, Agent and police positive revolvers with the newer (post 1971) small "D" frame and Armscor M206. Package does not say will fit Armscor, but Armscor gave me the heads up. Grips fit perfect.

Weapon looks way better in person now with these grips.

09-01-2010, 5:40 AM
Looks much better now.

Is that a parkerized finish on the revolver?

09-01-2010, 8:31 PM
I was told it is.

09-02-2010, 9:52 AM
Looks 10x better now.

Need range results.

01-07-2011, 8:48 AM
Nice, I like the factory grips on mine but these look good too. i might just have to get a pair.

My son and I have only took my M206 out once to shoot, but we really enjoyed shooting it. My son loved it, he had more fun with this Armscor than he had with the semi-auto's we brought along. I used PMC Bronze 132gr FMJ. We shot 150 rounds, all was well. Have not tried any +P's. Have been looking for some +P Ranger ammo but no luck yet. I emailed Armscor and asked if the M206 would handle +P's and I was told yes, but do not recommend using them all the time. Hummmm! The finish is Parkerized and doesn't seem to leave a lot of finger prints on it that easy. The finish could be better, mine had a little faded spots here and there. But for what I paid for it I didn't care as long as it was new and worked. I wanted a .38 that I didn't have to baby, like all my other firearms (I really watch out for scratches on all my expensive stuff). I also like that it is a 6 shooter not a 5. Weight is around 26 ounces a little heavy but helps with any recoil (feels sturdy), changed the grips and wow it feels very nice and comfortable when shooting, action is tight not loose at all. Shoots just as well as S&W's. This revolver is worth getting. This time I bought 300 rounds and cant wait to get back to the range.

I too have the Armscor M206. I purchased the hogue grip thinking it would work since it is a reproduction of a colt. But it didn't. Next step is the pachmayer grip.

03-06-2011, 11:26 AM
Love the Pachmayers for revolvers.

03-06-2011, 11:34 AM
how much are they at turners?

04-21-2011, 12:00 PM
Great thread. I just ordered the grips for mine. Thanks for posting your pictures. I've shot mine with the standard wood grips using +p ammo. I didn't enjoy it to say the least. My buddy, who I took for the first time, didn't want to shoot it after a few rounds :).

As a side note... Armscor website now has the same model pictured with rubber grips. I wonder if that's standard now.

HOW CUTE!! gotta love armscor

That depends on which site you're looking at. Their international home site in the Philippines (http://www.armscor.com.ph/revolvers.htm) has the plastic grips.


The American website (http://www.armscor.net/revolver.html) shows it with the wood grips.

Those Pachmayrs turn it into one nice looking revolver.
