GP100 Grips

Hello All,

I am looking into getting a new set of grips for my GP100. The recoil is a little stiff and is affecting my accuracy a bit. I'm wondering what you guys would suggest. Quick google search shows Hogue and Pachmayr. I'm super new to the revolver thing, so I don't really have a clue. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,

Micah

Re: GP100 Grips

You cant go wrong with either the Hogue or Pachmayr grips. Are you looking rubber or wood grips? I like the pachmayr because they do a nice job reducing felt recoil. Atleast it does for me. If you want some good looking wood grips hogue is the way to go.

Hogue with the finger grooves.

You just shot an unarmed man. Well he should have armed himself!!! Clint Eastwood.

Re: GP100 Grips

I'm looking for a set of some rubber grips...something to take the recoil punch out of the .357 loads. .38's aren't bad to handle. The .357's are a tad hard to tackle though.

Re: GP100 Grips

It isn't all that old. The rubber grips that are on it might as well be wood...they are stiff to say the least.

Re: GP100 Grips

Thanks for the ideas guys. Looked on Midway for some Hogue grips. There are Hogue "tamer" grips and "monogrip" grips. They are 2 separate items. Is there a difference between them? I'm looking for the best thing to take some bight out of the hotter .357 loads.

Re: GP100 Grips

The factory grips on your GP100 are Hogue monogrips

Re: GP100 Grips

It may seem contrary but when I changed to Pachmayr COMBAT grips on my GP100, which are smaller than factory grips, I gained much control and the recoil became much less of an issue even with the really hot hunting loads we put together.
