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. The accomplishments of decades of innovation were recognized in 1986 when Frank Pachmayr was elected as one of the top ten Outstanding American Handgunners. Sportsmen, law enforcement professionals and gunsmiths have come to rely on their performance and quality.

Recoil pads and handgun grips using patented technology form the foundation of a line built on the idea that a product should not only perform well in reducing recoil, but improve your shooting, be easy to install and look good. As Pachmayr grew, the major firearms makers recognized the value of drawing on the company’s products and expertise to add value to the firearms they marketed. This close-knit working relationship with both gunmakers and stock makers continues today, 50 years after the introduction of Pachmayr's first recoil pad. In fact, recently, when Browning needed a radical new recoil pad for their rifles and shotguns, they turned to Pachmayr expertise and technology. The result was their new Inflex Recoil Pad.
