Hogue Rubber Grips - New Vaquero 357

Hi Folks - I'm trying to figure out if the monogrip Hogue grips fit the new Vaquero in 357. The Hogue site seems to imply that the new Vaqueros have a different frame. I love my Vaquero but my GP100 Hogue grips have spoiled me and although the stock Vaquero grips are beautiful, they are not comfortable enough for me.

The New Vaquero has the 7/16" grip frame width as the website shows. Hogue makes the two types of single-action cowboy style grips to fit it. The mono-grip is intended to allow gripping a hard kicking sixgun. Blackhawks, Super Blackhawks, and original Vaqueros were built and chambered for some powerful rounds. Lots of people found it hard to control their revolvers with traditional style grips so Hogue has sold many monogrips. The New Vaquero was brought out for those desiring a smaller, lighter, and sleeker revolver with the feel and balance of the Colt SAA. The New Vaquero is not designed or intended for big-bore magnums or any "Ruger Only" loads,so Hogue sees no market for hunting type grips for a Cowboy Action revolver.

Thanks much ngashooter! I had a feeling that those monogrips were only intended for the old style Vaquero which is too bad. The recoil in the 38 special +P loads I'm using isn't hard to control, but I prefer the larger Hogue monogrip style that fits my hand much better than the stock grips.....I just feel like I need more room! In the absence of any other grip like that, I'll just have to deal with it. Are there any other new Vaquero grips that will fill the hand a bit more than the stock pair?

I too find most stock grips too small for my hand. There are makers that will make you a pair from a tracing of your hand, but there are plenty of "thicker" grip panels being produced out there. Just avoid anything marked "Gunfighter" as those are usually a thin profile grip for small handed people. Happy shooting!

Just throwing my 2 cents out there, but the Vaquero and Blackhawk plow handles were designed to roll with the recoil. The full Houges sort of ruin that design. Again, only my opinion, but I use a pinky under hold because my hands are a bit larger and it works out well. Houges don't look quite right on a single action. I can see though that they might be comfortable for some.

Me too. Wood grips are very beautiful, but Hogue grips are for shooting.
