I like Hogue as well as any grips I've found. Have some of their exotic wood grips on a couple of my revolvers and like them a lot. The fit well and Hogues customer service is outstanding if you run into any problems.

Maybe you should define what you mean by cool. What's cool to one could be hideous to another.

Yes, this would help. Also, DA or SA revolver? To get you started, check out the links below. Any of these "cool"? There are a number of SA grip makers that make some really nice stuff.

Revolver grips. Man the choices are endless.
You just need to find some that are comfortable to you.
Hogue has a very good selection of types of woods and an assortment of styles, colors and do you want round butt, square butt, round butt to square butt conversions ?
Finger groove, Single finger groove, No finger groove, Boot style.
What brand wheel are you looking for grips for ?

I like hogue and pachmyer. They are what I have on my revolvers. I was able to find one in both brands that fit my hand better than the factory grips. Which makes shooting the gun nicer. They may not be the coolest looking or fancy but dont forget useability and comfort.

Nothing looks "cooler" to me then a nice S&W revolver with original S&W wood grips with the silver medallions. Very sharp.



If you own S&W revolvers and are looking for original wood grips, go over to the S&W forum. There is a few vendors there that have a very extensive collection for sale.

Now I just need to find some wood grips for the 500. That might be a tough search.

Hey Rock, you know that the 500 shares the same grips as the K & L frame right ?
No problem getting after market or factory grips to fit.
Good luck.

I didn't. But I do now. Nice scroll work on the 500. At first glance I thought it was a J frame with boot grips. Not trying to hyjack the thread but wow, how's your hand grip using those while shooting full load 450gr plus rnds?

Aesthetics are definitely not universal *lol*, but there are plenty of styles of revolver grips alright. As jhgreasemonkey said as well, the ones that look the nicest to someone are also not necessarily the ones that work the best either.

In any case, here are a few other grips sites:
http://www.getgrip.com/
http://www.lymanproducts.com/pachmayr/
http://www.altamontco.com/ (website is awful, but grips are nice)
http://www.badgercustomgrips.com/
http://www.inventorscolony.com/colli...rips/index.php

Thanks.
I have not shot the 500 after the engraving. I had the grips purchased for the gun so the engraver could work around them. Prior to that, I shot it with only the standard rubber Hogues.
By the way, the grips on the 500 are vintage ACE combat grips sold through S&W back a few years ago.
