Match Champion Grips?

As one who has had a SP-101,Speed Six, LCR, and Wiley Clapp Ruger .357.

I'm pretty impressed with the Match Champion that I checked out the
other evening.

Except for the grips.\\I think they could have put the
GP-100 Hogues on it and dropped the price $100.

Does anyone have recent pics of their MC with different grips?

Also, I think the trigger, at least in SA.. was better on my WC.

The Match Does have better balance (to me) than the shorter
Wiley .357, but I will look for a used MC after my LCP Total Carry
package sells.

With the low pricing on LCPs (without the CT laserguard and IWB+Acc)
it might be a while. I'm not set to lose another $200 on a gun though.

We have to pay a sales tax on any internet guns these days, and $35
transfer fee, then the highway robbery for shipping a gun.

Anyhow, post your Match with different grips.

Those actually are Hogues, just without the finger grooves.
There are numerous alternatives, if you look around.

After a trip to the range I switched out my MC grips.

These seem to fit my hands better and the groups got tighter using them.

Need to get some nicer inserts. The gun is definitely worthy.
