I have a model 36 S&W J frame SQUARE BUTT and I am trying to find a laser grip for this - can only fin ROUND BUTT . Crimson trace says they do not make one. This is a former police gun, I can;t believe that there has never been a laser grip for this....help.

Don't mess with old guys. they are too old to fight, too fat to run, so their only choice is to kill you.

You can't fix STUPID, but you can vote it OUT !!!!


If Obama is the answer, it is a very stupid question!

Like this one? Note the characteristic round wear spot on the frame, from the NYPD mandatory issue concealed carry holster:



The reason you're probably having trouble finding a laser for your square butt J frame is because Smith discontinued J-frame square butts at least 10 years before lasers became cheap and popular!

Anyway, at about $30 this might work for you, and you can hang anything you want off your J-frame (light, laser, bayonet, tripod ):

If you crave a slightly less ugly solution, I think you probably *can* put a round butt grip on a square butt frame, it will just require modifying the grips, frame, or both. How ugly this gets depends on what you're trying to fit on there, but I bet if you used something with one of the closed-backstrap designs it might work pretty well.

Also, at one point B-square made some sort of laser that fit in front of the frame for J-frames. You might find one.
