The Hogue's are a bit heavier and wider but have a nice feel to them. The rubber texture and stippling around the pistol grip and fore end would be very welcome if your hands are sweaty. bloody or you are out in a downpour. They can be a bit grabby on your shirt when you shoulder the Mini though. Some have put a wrap of tape around the stock at the back to prevent this, what I did was use a Spectre butt pouch that can be had with their sling, or bought separately. There is enough of the canvas material around the butt to make it less grabby when shouldering. The pouch is made for a spare 20 round magazine, but I have found there is enough room as well under the Velcro flap for a small bag with an Otis cleaning cable, a few patches, and small vial of solvent and a spare firing pin and extractor.
As far as accuracy, I did seem to notice a slight decrease in accuracy, but very slight, and other factors could have played into that.
I do like how much lighter my Mini is with the Ruger factory synthetic stock than my wood stocked Mini or Hogue stocked Mini, I don't like the black color of the Ruger synthetic, but will finish it in a shade of grey when I get around to Cerakoting the stainless Mini.
Yes, I am lefthanded, so the mag pouch and sling will look on the wrong side to most people.
