RedHawk wood grips

I would like to replace the HogueŽ Monogrip on my 4.2" 44 mag. with wood grips. Question is finger grooves yes or no, side stippling yes or no. I have the Match Champion and do like the grips, being able to shoot reasonably well.
This is not a hunting, or target gun but more of a walkabout gun for animal protection. Thanks

I tried the Hogue, Full Finger Groove and the Top Finger Groove on my Redhawks
Even tried the Hogue Rubber Monogrips
hogue wood monogrip, redhawk - MidwayUSA

Returned to the OEM Grips
I found that I'm not a big fan of the Monogrip's filler behind the Trigger Guard
Causes the Revolver to ride too high in my hold
I prefer to have the Bore closer and more in-line with my hand

I like pachymyers on all such guns.

I like the Hogue grips. Want to get a longer barrel Redhawk and change to the Hogues. They come standarrd on the 4.2". Guess Ruger reserves them for revolvers which have more recoil.

The only way for you to really know is to try them out and see how they feel to you.

I took the stock Bantam rubber grips off mine and got some of the original size grips either off eBay or Altamont grips. There really aren't that many choices.

I have the Hogue fancy wood finger grooved one piece grip on my Redhawk 7.5 inch barrel 44 mag. For me with large hands they made quite a difference. I added Ruger grip medallions to mine. When I shoot a lot of full power loads I wear a padded shooting glove.
