Founded in 1929 by Frank Pachmayr, the Pachmayr name has earned the respect of shooters, law enforcement professionals and gunsmiths alike. The Pachmayr family had generations of custom gunsmithing experience with Frank Pachmayr having learned the trade from his father and grandfather who were trained in the rigorous, old world school of German gunsmithing.
Pachmayr rubber handgun grips, introduced to the market in the early 1960’s, revolutionized the handgun market. Innovative, patented designs and materials have been the foundation of the grip line. One of Frank Pachmayr’s proudest accomplishments was the fact that scores of police officers around the country chose to privately purchase Pachmayr grips for their guns in a time when police departments did not provide guns for their personnel. In 1996, Lyman Products acquired Pachmayr and we have worked to continue his legacy in our line of Revolver Grips with classics like our American Legend Grips and innovative products such as the Diamond Pro Grip and our G10 and Renegade Grip line, as well as truly revolutionary concepts like our new GuardianGrips. Generations of shooters have benefitted from the experience designed into every Pachmayr grip.
