I agree that the Ruger plastic grips are pretty horrible.
I replaced mine with Hogue Wrap arounds. Comfortable and inexpensive. My only complaint is that they make it a bit more of a pain to reach the Mag release.
I originally tried to get the similar Pachmayr grips, but they were sold out everywhere at that time. I have older style set on my AMT Lightning (SS copy of the MK2.) They are quite nice. They have higher quality feel than the Hogues. Both work well IMHO.

Would you want to sell your old grips?

Probably not just in case I ever sell the gun I can sell it with both sets.

Where did you pick up those grips at just purchased my first mark iii and I agree they are very uncomfortable. Also is there a good place to buy "upgrade" kits for the it also? Here is what I just got
