Ruger sp101 Grips

I will be picking it up this week. Just waiting on the paperwork to get back from the sherrifs office. I do not like the stock grips and was looking to see if anyone has pictures of theirs with either wodden panel inserts or the hogue rubber monogrips. Just to get an idea of which I might like better. I am looking at the panels that a member here has listed on ebay I think his/her username is 1chig.

Here`s a set ,well both sets 1 of em on a GP , fit & finish is superb !!!

Here`s a close up of the fit/finish ya can expect from 1chig.

Nice guy & easy to deal with also .

I have several sets of panels from em .

Here`s another set showing the thickness of em , a little more than the factory 1s ,a + in my case as I have med/large hands.

Those are the same ones I ordered this morning. That spent casing is a nice touch. I cant wait for them to get to me. I just got the email that he updated the item to shipped so I guess it will be on its way to me tomorrow.

I don't like the blocky rubber grips that come with the sp101 regardless of what panel is in it. The Hogues are much better IMHO.

Most people seem to think the Hogues are "ugly". I couldn't care less how they look. They place your hand in exactly the same position on every draw. My wife has one of the first SP 101s made and it has always had Hogues on it. And it is a joy to shoot. Hogue makes some very fine looking wood grips if you just can't do the rubber thing. Kim Ahrends also makes some great grips. The original Ruger grip actually works very well for control and comfort.

I bought the hogue grips aswell. But I like the look of the wood inserts a lot better. I will most likely just stick the hogue grip in the safe. I have hogue grips on 2 of my other guns that I am not really concerned about looks with. This revolver just looks sweet with the inserts

1chig does beautiful work. I bought two sets from him and he threw in a third gratis. All three are superb as to fit and finish. All three are quite beautiful. I've got cedar panels in it now, a nod to my Pacific Northwest roots.

I removed the factory grips and installed the Hogues. The factory rubber grips with the plastic inserts provided no place for my pinky, but the Hogues are an awesome fit.

I now have the beautiful wood panel inserts and the hogue grip. I will install the wood panels and leave it that way. They look to nice to put rubber on instead. I might sell the hogue grip or just keep it as backup
