This is a discussion on Pachmayr Decelerator or Hogue Rubber for 7 1/2" SBH within the Ruger Single Action forums, part of the Pistol & Revolver Forum category; I was wondering if anyone had tried both of these grips?And your thoughts between the two?...

Never tried the Hogue, but I have Pachmayrs on every revolver except one, and on three semi-autos.

I tried the Pachmayr some years ago, it actually bothered my hand in the web so I went back to the original Ruger grips. Probably not much help but I thought the Pachmayr sucked.

I haven't used any recent Pachmayr grips but I do know I don't like Hogues because of their finger grooves. They never fit my hand properly and I've replaced them on every gun where they came as factory grips.

I have the Hogue and they aren't bad per se but I could do without the grooves and I wish the were thinner up toward the top and it looks like the Pachmayers are thinner. I'll probably get a set of Pachmayrs and try em. LOL
Thanks for the replies!

People have different sized hands so you will find a spectrum from "love" to "hate" for virtually every type of grips. I had both the Hogue and Pachmayer grips and really didn't care for either. My favorite grips were a set of oversized wood that I recently sold because my 7 1/2" SBH went to a new home.

My 7.5" Redhawk wears Pachmayr Decelerators. My 7.5" SBH has Hogue rubber grips. Both fit my hands perfectly and make .44mag loads comfortable. I love them both.

Biggest thing I wish was a smoother transition right behind the trigger of the Hogue.

Sr40ken, Here's a photo of my SBH with the custom oversized grips. I bought them more than 15 years ago and have no idea who made them. I do know …. the shape behind the trigger guard prevented 'knuckle slap" and the larger size helped tame recoil. These grips are now owned by another forum member and I hope he enjoys them as much as I did.

Nrah is an unknown quantity at this point
I have the Hogue grip, and it helps with recoil a lot. Still wear gloves, tho.

I have the Hogue on now and absolutely! It makes it very shootable with full tilt 44 mag. I just wish it was trimmer forward toward the trigger.

My OM SBH wears these from Altamont. Not too pricey and really solved the knuckle whack for me.
