Default Ruger Red Hawk/ Pachmayer Grips

Hello,
I'm new to the forum, and I just bought my first Ruger Red Hawk .357 Stainless
7 1/2.
It has the wood grips from the factory and I can't get a good grip on the gun,I wondered if any of you folks have any revolvers with the pachmayer grip? and if so which model and how do you like them.

Thank's Wally

My Super Blackhawk has hard rubber Pachmayr's, they seem to work well enough, my Blackhawk has sort-of custom wood they are a little slick when shooting a lot. I put Hogue grips on my 1911, it's nicer to shoot now. My RRA AR came with Hogue grips.

I tried Pachmayer grips on my redhawks but like Hogue much better. Hogue are also cheaper too. Where I didn't like Pachmayer grips is they are split in the front, and that bugs me with magnum revolvers. The Hogue grips slip up from the bottom-not split. The Hogue is a little bit of a hassle installing the stirrup for the bottom screw, but once done you can forget about it.

I also got Hogue grips on my gp 100 and on my 442 and they dont make a better grip 100 times better then the stock grips.

Default Redhawk Grips

I have Pachmayr "Presentation" grips on my 71/2" Redhawk .44 magnum.
I don't like the finger groove type grips.

Another vote for Hogue much more comfortable. Plus if you want to stick with wood they have really nice wood.

I have Pachmayr Presentation grips on both my Redhawks. They are my preferred grip.

I had problems with hoagues on my single six. Couldn't get the backstrap flush with rubber. Might have been due to my own error, but I ended up goin with an Ajax polymer that look sweet and seems to be a little wider than factory grips (which broke), fit my hand better and gun looks more original.
