I am very happy! They look and feel great! Hopefully I will enjoy shooting just as much with them. I expect a bit more recoil but I'm ok with that.

RugerFamily I have a Ruger GP100 WCII which basically has a grip similar to your Ruger Rubber Grips with the wood inserts. I just recently changed over to a set of Ruger GP100 Compact Grips that you can get on Shop Ruger online. The Ruger Compact Grips are a down sized grips vs the full sized Ruger Rubber Grips with the wood insert. This is what I found out in felt recoil, I was shooting my .357 Magnum reloads using 158 grain jhp bullets. The actual felt recoil with my Compact Grips wasn't all that bad, it still gives me the absorption of the Ruger Rubber grips yet I get better gripping control because the compact grips are smaller. Your stock Hogue Grips also are very good, personally I think you made a good choice in your new Ruger Rubber grips with the wood inserts or are these the Altamont grips same thing!!!

I put those grips on my GP100 a couple weeks ago and couldn't detect any difference when I went to the range. I shot 100 rounds of 357 magnum with no noticeable difference from the rubber grips that came with it.

I like they way the look, and enjoy the way they feel.

Glad they worked out the Altamont Grips look the very same.

You can get the Altamont grips textured which is nice. Unfortunately their panels aren't as good of a fit as should be, mine left gaps in the rubber.
