Replacement grip choice for GP-100....

Hopefully within the next week or two I will once again have a GP-100 in my hands. The last one had the factory rubber grips with the wood inserts, the new ones have the Hogue mono-grip.
What's the general consensus on the new style grip, do you like it, or do you plan to replace it......?
If you plan to replace it, what do you plan to get.......?

I'm thinking the smooth Pau Ferro finger grove grip by Hogue for mine......

When I purchased my GP100 they came with the insert grips. I like the fit for my hands and control they give me so I left them on it. They sell them at Midway.

First of all, Congrats on a great choice of revolver!

I am waiting for a new grip from Jim Badger to arrive. I personally am not crazy about the way the monogrip feels in my hand and have heard the hogue wood fits in the hand the same way as the rubber. Once I get the grip on I will post how it feels.

I choose Hogue Monogrip,but its a personal choice,they fit my hands better than other grips so I have them on all my revolvers.

I like the handle with insert of original wood of Ruger, like the one that my GP-100 takes.

If money were no object I would get either a Herrett's Roper or Roy Fishpaw grip. Currently, my GP wears a Hogue with NO finger grooves in Kingwood and no checkering. It is too bad Blu Magnum doesn't make grips for Ruger DA's.

The Hogue didn't fit my hand at all, too large and too thin for its size. I have used the original grip with wood inserts (available from Ruger) and the compact with inserts (sometimes available from Brownells, MidwayUSA and eBay). The compact for me is both the best fit and best for carry, even with study heavy diet of 357s.

For the 3" GP, I ditched the Mono grip for the Ruger compact with inserts (for concealed carry). The 4" still wears the Mono. It fits my hand and sits on the night stand. Choice of grip depends on the primary use of each weapon.

Didn't vote cause my favorite option isn't there either. I have long skinny fingers, and Hogues they offer for the GP don't work for me.

I prefer the Ruger factory grips with the wooden inserts in either the standard, or compact size.

I have said this before and will say it again. I WISH Pachmayr would make a presentation grip for the GP100.

I usually wear a size large gloves and the stock Hogue grips are great for me. However, I like the LOOKS of the wood inserts better. But still, function over form for me. Heck, that's why I chose the GP over a 686!!

I had put a set of the Hogue smooth wood finger grove grips on my last GP-100, and they felt better in my hand than the factory wood insert grip. The new GP's come with the rubber mono grip like the one's I had on my S&W 686, good feel but I didn't like the look.....

I'll get a set for the new GP, but depending on whether I get the stainless, or Blued will determine which type of wood I'll choose......

There's just something about a blued steel gun with wood grips that appeals to me.....

Thanks for the votes and responses guys, much appreciated......

The wood insert factory grips(standard size or compact), fit my hand the best, with Uncle Mike's finger groove grips in a close second.
