Wood grips

Ok not my first revolver but just got a ruger sp101 357 with 3inch barrel. Factory grips are to small so thinking of going to wood this time with finger groves. But because I have arthritis in hands is wood not a good idea. Will be carry gun and home gun due to shoulder injury for year or so cant rack my rap in 9mm compact with bad shoulder

I also found the OEM rubber grips too small on my SP101's, plus I just don't like the feel of rubber grips, so I installed Hogue one piece wooden grips (with finger grooves) on my 3" and 2.25" SP's.
I find the Hogue wooden grips comfortable and provide a secure hand hold. Give them a try.

Guess I should have said will the wood have alot of felt recoil. I have the hogue already and like them I have them on other guns but like the looks of wood on ss just never tried them since got arthritis in hands cant shoot my 40 semi or 44mag because of recoil

I also have arthritis in my shoulders hands fingers etc. I have a Ruger SP101 in .327FM 3 inch barrel that can kick just as hard as a SP101 .357 magnum. I went thru the grip thing as well the Rubber Hogues the stock Rubber Grips I finally settled on a set of Wood Finger Grooved Hogue grips they work great on the recoil. What I found out on the Hogue Wood grips is they are just a tad larger in circumference or diameter to help me hold on to my SP101 better. Hope this helps also if it were me I strongly suggest that you shoot more .38 special loads there are plenty of them. I had to reload my .327 FM ammo to expensive for .32 caliber!! By working up some toned down reloads I was able to get my SP101 .327FM a milder shooting revolver. Good luck!!!

I agree, factory grips r too small. I've got Hogue rubber on my 357 3", Badger wood on my 327 3" n Pachmayr rubber on the 9mm snubby. I like'em all.

I especially like the Badger wood with finger grooves, they fill your palm n change the angle of the grip but it feels good.

Sounds like the Hogue rubber finger grooves might be the best bet with arthritis and a weak grip.

They stick in your hand really good.
