Back in the ‘70s, and even well into the ‘80s, very few revolvers came with grips that actually fit a shooter’s hands. Custom grip manufacturers existed, but there was no internet to help shooters find them. If the revolver owner didn’t read a gun magazine, or sometimes the ‘right’ gun magazine, he or she would never learn that they didn’t have to suffer with poor revolver fit! Today we have a wide range of aftermarket grips available, and many more that can be had on a custom basis through the many gripmakers found on the internet.
This means that there is grip material between the heel of your hand and the back strap of the gun. If this material is made of rubber (particularly the very soft type) it means greater comfort, especially with the very light guns and/or heavy recoiling ammunition. If the grip material is wood or another hard material, naturally you won’t get that advantage. What you will get, regardless of the material choice, is a change in trigger reach. That extra material increases trigger reach, sometimes very noticeably, so that the gun better fits larger hands.
Over the years they’ve accommodated other calibers in different capacities and made of different materials, but the frame size remains largely unchanged. When small concealment revolvers are mentioned, particularly those intended for pocket or ankle carry, the gun almost invariably meant is some variation of the J-frame. There have been several major variations in the J-frame lineup, referred to by the original model that had the feature set. These various model lines themselves are often used as descriptors even if the gun itself was never officially part of that line.
