Founded in 1929 by Frank Pachmayr, the company has earned the respect of shooters, law enforcement professionals and gunsmiths, alike. This is no surprise as the Pachmayr family already had 3 generations of custom gunsmithing experience when the company started. Frank Pachmayr learned the trade from his father and grandfather who were trained in the rigorous, old world school of German gunsmithing.
Pachmayr joined Lyman in 1996 and still produces their products in Southern California, not far from their original location. Pachmayr continues to grow and expand by listening to their customers and developing new products to meet their needs, such as 2007’s line of recoil reducing grips and forends for the TC Encore and G2 Contender. In addition to recoil pads and handgun grips, Pachmayr offers many other accessory items for the gunsmith and sportsman including Pac-Skin, 1911 accessories, tool kits, snap caps and flush mount sling swivels.
Pachmayr is the first choice of shooters, gunsmiths, law enforcement professionals and firearm manufacturers for top quality handgun grips, recoil pads and firearm accessories. Pachmayr products possess an unequaled combination of superior materials and advanced engineering, which is evident in our full line of high performance products.
