    Grips for Ruger GP-100

    Hello Everyone!

    I have been carrying GP-100 for a while now and would like to buy new grips for it. I really like the Hogue rubber grips. Any Experence with these grips on this gun?

    Thanks

    I can't speak for that particular gun but - have Hogues on my M85 and also one of my SRH's. On balance I prefer them to the Packmayr's.

    Considering their cost is not too severe I'd certainly suggest getting and fitting some - chances are very good that you will like them a lot. Only down-side some folks find is rubber grips can snag clothing sometimes ... but this depends what you wear in part, plus a small dusting of talc' powder can remedy that.

    BTW - welcome.

    Yes..I like the Hogue monogrip on my GP100. Never have liked the standard Ruger grips. The Hogue isn't ideal though if you want to carry your GP100 concealed. I'm now using Secret Service grips by Eagle. The Eagle grip seems to fit my hand better too and covers up better under a tee shirt or polo shirt.

    Shortly after buying my GP100 I purchased Packmayr grips. They have been a great investment over the years... I've owned my GP100 for over 15 years now.

    Which grips do you have on the gun now.

    If they are the rubber with the wood inset, I wouldn't change them. I have found them to be quite comfortable in numerous environments, especially the hot sweaty summers of this irrigated desert that I live in.

    Both wood and rubber stocks have their advantages and disadvantages.

    Right now my EDC is an N-Frame S&W with wood stocks. I'm using the Eagle "Secret Service" stocks. The wood is better, IMHO, for concealed carry because it doesn't "grab" the cover garmet.

    Rubber stocks are better for shooting. I have both Hogue and Pacmayer (sp?) and find that I like the Pac's better because they cover the backstrap.

    You may want to look at some wood stocks that cover the backstrap as an "intermediate compromise". My next set of stocks is going to be a set of Badgers for my GP100. They cover the backstrap, like the Pac's, but allow the cover garmet to "slide" over the stocks like the Eagle's.

    Yes, I am currently using the grips that came with it. The grip fits my hand but it just feels like something is missing.

    To each his own. I have a relative who feels as you do. Here's my GP100 with Eagle grips.

    The only problem I see with those great looking gips,is that they only have two finger slots, my big hands need all three. I wish Butler Creek still made these. I really love mine:

    Had a 6" GP with the Houges and really liked them. It was used for hunting & plinking, not carry.

    I do like my Packmayr grips, so I just took a picture so you can see what they look like on a 15 year old GP100:
