I have never liked the pacmyer grip. Just to hard.Gun Runner said:On the used Redhawk I got it had the standard pacmyer grip, these using a fairly warm load ate into my hand. Got a set of Hogue and can spend the whole afternoon shooting the same load and not wear a hole in my hand.
I agree with Redhawk 1...I had a slight issue with consistency when shooting my Super Blackhawk Hunter with hunting gloves on with the stock black laminate grip. I switched to the Hogue rubber grip and never looked back...I love the feel and the finger grooves make is easy to gain a consistent grip. Check out the pic...
I also like the look of wood grips. But like you said, go with what works. When I had my BFR in 500MAG I could not keep a set of wooden Hogue grips on it. The recoil kept splitting the grip. I had to switch to the rubber grip, it also felt better when shooting.WNY_Whitetailer said:Thanks for the compliment...I like the look of the laminate wood better but you got to go with what works...I choose function over fashion.
Good point John...The rubber grips do fill larger hands nicely. I had the same problem with my SBHH. The rubber grips are the perfect size for me now.John said:I have a pretty good sized set of hands on me, and the stock grips on my redhawk were just a bit too small. I went lookin for some new grips, and the local sporting goods had some Hogue rubber.
I like em.
