what grips are ya'll runnin'?

This is a discussion on what grips are ya'll runnin'? within the Ruger Single Action forums, part of the Pistol & Revolver Forum category; I tried Pachmeyer and Hogue. Big, fat, grippy and shock absorbing...but not handsome. I got a pair of Bearpaw (almost by accident) and was hooked. ...

All three of my Ruger single actions now wear Bearpaw grips. Each pair is unique and absolutely beautiful. But, most importantly, they are ergonomic perfection in my hands. These craftsmen have broke the code.

I will say I have some very nice Altamont walnut grips on my Ruger Vaquero Sheriff's Model .357...........but I do not care at all with putting rubber grips on a Ruger SA revolver!!!

I opted for Hogue Rubber finger groove. The feel really good in my small hand.

I run the ugly Hogue mono grip rubber. It's lets my 65 year old hands handle full bore 44 mag loads.

Here is my Single Six with Elk antler grips. The grips are not an exact fit, but I like the way they fill my hand.

Well I may as well revive this thread. I have a New Model Blackhawk 357 magnum, 6 1/2. I didn't like the factory black plastic grips that came on this. Kinda hard on the hands after shooting for a while. I decided to go with the factory rosewood grips, and these feel much much better. They are even a little bigger then the plastic which for me is more comfortable.

I like the feel of Eagle's Gunfighter Grips. So, I duplicated the profile of them on Jay Scott fake MOP grips for my Vaqueros.

I may be swimming against the tide, while I do think the Pachmayr grips are not "authentic" looking, I prefer shooting quality over eye appeal. I have big clubby hands and the Pachmayr finger groove grips on my SBH Dragoon grip frame felt so great in my hands I put a Dragoon grip frame on my 357 convertible BH to get the Pachmayr finger groove grips on it. I also exchanged the BH hammer with a SBH hammer. I must say though that some of those "authentic" grips are handsome.

Those stag grips are truly beautiful...wish I could find some big enough to work up into a pair of SA stocks...I've got a cpl elk antler bases that are just not quite big enough.

Here are some wood stocks, I made up from a variety of materials....all have a bit more wood up at the top of the grip to help with recoil and closely fitted to the lower frame to prevent dig in by any sharp edge as the gun rolls up in recoil. I learned to make them from posts here and elsewhere by Cary at CLC. His kind and generous tips helped me learn to fitting techniques. Rod

This first pic is a NV .45 Colt fitted with poplar fencing spalted from wx exposure. In the background, you can see some old horse fencing that I'll replace later this spring. Laid up in the barn for a year, it'll make some pretty spalted wood for stocking.


These are Walnut found at a muzzle loader's meet...cutoffs from a long rifle stock. Ruger's .44 Special FT...my favorite big caliber SA.


Here's another .44 Special FT Ruger (5-1/2" bbl. this time) fitted with apple wood from a friend's wood pile.


Yet another .44 Spl Stainless FT fitted with rosewood stocks. A good all-wx gun for day to day chores here on the farm.


Lastly, some rosewood ones fitted to a 50 Anniversary Ruger FT in .44 Magnum. Thicker than the 'cheese grater' factory issues, they really help with the recoil impulse and God knows they're prettier!

Hogue makes wood grips too, not just those ugly oversize rubber grips that some guys put on an SA.
The Hogues are more hand filling than factory grips, but not quite as thick as Chig's grips.
Hogues shown are Goncalo Alves, Chig's are Walnut.
