    I wish I could but I do not own the full grip. From looking at the two however I would guess that controlability would go up a notch (the increased length would provide a more secure grip) and concealability would go down a notch as the increased length would likely print a bit more. Comfort may gain .5-1 point as well from the increased length. That's just my guess though.

    Wow Rollo! Great review! I agree with your assessments as well. I tried a set of the Badgers and they are great grips but they just didn't work for me. I stuck with the factory grips and like them the best. Now I just have to sell the Badgers and find a set of fancy schmancy inserts then I'm good to go. I also enjoyed your 3 months with the sp101 review!

    Actually it was a picture you posted some time ago that inspired me to try the Pachmyr compacs on my SP101. I find they soak up recoil better than the originals I was using and fit my hand just as well. As an added plus I do think they are pleasing to the eye.

    I am glad the photo was inspiring to you to try the grip and wind up liking them.You are correct sir they are pleasing to the eye especially in a functional way and the perfect grip for me. I really like their look from the right side .

    Thanks for the review.
    I have the black badger boot grips on my SP, and mine developed a chip in the back, near the backstrap, after just one range session.
    The chipped out section is very small, and Jim Badger offered to replace them, but I might just leave them on, since the replacements might just do the same...
    I will just sand them lightly, and call it good.
    I love the way they feel, conceal, and look.
    I would like the pachmayer too, but am worried that so many say that they do not fit properly..
    How many have found pachs that DID fit?
    Will post pics... if I can ever get my photos to a hosting site.

    I wanted to get some crimson trace grips for my sp101, checked out one at the local GS, and found that I didn't like the way the gun pointed with 'em. Would've never thought of that. Factory grips conceal great, wouldn't consider any others.

    Rollo, great review. I've got the Hogue grips on my SP101 right now. I'm surprised you find them grabby. I typically use nothing but a t-shirt to cover the gun and haven't found them grabby, at all. One trick I learned long ago was to wipe down new rubber grips (Hogue, Pachmyr, etc...) with alcohol, let them dry and sit for a few minutes, then rub them down with your hands. Repeat a second time if needed. This has always taken off any tacky, sticky, grabby feel to my grips.

    I actually developed the same chip in mine. I never bothered to contact Jim though. I filled in the chip with some clear nail polish which seems to have worked pretty well,

    I wish someone would make some wood grips for the SP101 that look like old S&W square butt grips. I wonder if there's a custom grip maker that would either make some or modify a set of Smith grips to fir the SP101. To me, that would give the SP101 a classic revolver look. Any suggestions on someone to contact?

    Why not just buy a S&W for your next wheel gun?

    Great report Rollo!

    To date, I've left my SP-101's stock, but I've been really drooling over those Secret Service grips for a while now. May have to spring for a pair.

    Very good review Rollo. Well done.

    I personally like the stock grips the best. I like the way they look and I like the way they feel. They have the added benefit of not costing anything extra too!
