Default Hogue grip review

I don't know if this topic has been addressed or not, and if it has, I apologize for the duplication.

This weekend, I removed the grips on my Taurus PT1911 and replaced them with the Hogue Rubber Grip with Finger Groove. I've got pretty big hands and it completely changed the feel of the firearm. Everything feels much more natural and reflexive. It also makes my grip feel that much more solid. I'm a big fan of this product. I'll get some pictures up soon and post a range report when I make it out there.

My two steel frame pistols (S&W 1006 and 4506) sport Hogue grips. I like them. I too have large hands (no, make that paws).

See the second thing I did to my 1911 was to trash the plastic and rubber grips. They made my hands sweat too much. I put on instead a nice set of cocobolo wood double diamond grips. Now I want a set for the Ruger MkII but they would look to nice on that ratty looking old gun.

I run them on my Kimber. I was going to send it in and have the front strap checkered because I couldn't find anyone local who would do it. A buddy suggested trying a set of Hogue Comabts. The made a huge difference in the comfort of the pistol and helped me to overcome muzzle flip before I really learned how to handle a 1911.

Hogue makes nice products though I am partial to the Pachmyr signature grips myself for 1911's .

The gun shown here I have hogue on it now for shooting Steel Matches, Wood is for picture, I have a STI Double Stack for USPSA and switching guns every 2 wks I needed to have the same feel, since the STI is much bigger grip, so to do that I put the hogue on my Single Stack Seel gun they are now similar, I like it allot.

I also have a set of houge combat grips on my SA loaded model, a couple of my buddies had various grips on theirs, my pistol originally came with the coco bolo grips but after shooting with the pachmyer and houge grips I decided that I need a set. so I walked out to see what they had and I flopped down the money for the houges, and I couldn't be happier, the coco bolo grips look great but I am more about funtion than form. that is also the reson I own 1911's.

I think I paid $18 or $20 for mine. To increase the functionality of a $700 pistol as much as they did, they're well worth it. They also feel the same in 20ºF weather as they do with sweaty hands in 120ºF weather.
