I first filmed this ERGO DELTA Grip review years ago, and since then have had some time to reevaluate the product. Everything I said in the video still stands, however there’s some more information to share.
The ERGO Delta Grip is designed to change the grip angle of the revolver, and solve one of the problems inherent to small revolvers, a lack of surface contact area. It changes the grip angle so that it’s the same as a Glock, and it adds a considerable amount of gripping area to the gun. The end result is a gun that’s easier to control and easier to shoot well than a standard j-frame.
While the ERGO DELTA Grip makes the gun easier to shoot, it also kind of ruins the j-frame. You see, one of the primary reasons people buy j-frames is because they want to carry the gun in their pocket. Normally, j-frame revolvers are light and small and can be easily concealed in a pants or coat pocket, and that’s how a lot of people prefer to carry them. The ERGO DELTA Grip basically makes pocket carry impossible, unless you have the world’s biggest pockets or a bag of holding.
In fact, it makes the gun harder to conceal, period. The big blocky grip becomes a difficult shape to break up under clothing, and I found that when I wore it, unless my shirt/belt/holster combo was perfect, the gun would print harder than Gutenberg. Again, that’s a problem because why do people buy j-frames? To carry them concealed.
Ultimately, if concealment is your goal, I can’t recommend the ERGO DELTA Grip. Yes, it makes the gun easier to shoot, but so does practice. I will say that one area I think it would be great: a .22 LR kit gun. Something where concealment isn’t really an issue but you want to be able to shoot the gun well. I think that this would be cool on something like a Smith & Wesson 317, but on an EDC revolver? It’s a no for me, dawg.
