Everyone should have this grip on their gun. It is a very tight fit, but once it's on you will never go back to the factory grip.

I run a Hogue grip on my 1911, and I like the feel.

I have heard some issues regarding their revolver grips (i.e. poor fit).

I plan on getting a Ruger pistol, and depending on what model I get, I'm going to put a Hogue on it.

I heard, that on some CZ75 models the Hogue Grips had to be worked on to make them fit correctly.....

I really miss a Pachmayr wrap around grip for the CZ75.

Not really. The grips fit tight (like they should).

As comfortable as they are, I just can't stand rubber grips. I like nice wood on my guns.

I got a pair of Hogue wood grips (pau ferro) for my CZ 75 and I couldn't be happier. Now I'm looking for replacement grips for my S&W 640.

Here she is (sorry for the crappy pic):

I have a pair of Pachmayr grips for my CZ75, but I don`t like them very much, since they mak the grip to thick for my small hands. Also I find it very pout from Pachmayr to produce a set of grip panels, that dont fit correctly to the pistol meant for. For instance the right side of the magazine release button. Ther is no notch cut out so the button can pass the grip panels. I had to cut out a piece of the rubber, for the button to pass correctly.



So what I did now, is I took the original plastic grips and grinded down the checkering using my dremel. Then I put skate board grip tape over the entire grip panel.
The grip is now thinner then whith the Pachmayr and the pistol weight is lower aswell.
Also the grip virtually glues to my hands.

As far as rubber grips, I like Hogue the best. They are especially handy on heavy recoiling revolvers to dampen felt recoil. Most of my handguns wear fancy wood grips except for HEAVY recoiling (.454 casull and bigger or extremely lightweight .44 magnums such as S&W 329) revolvers and some of my semiautos. Also when choosing Hogue semiauto grips, I pick the fingergroove grips as pictured to gain a little size in order to fit my big paws.

I loved them on my Compact. They helped me get the front sight back down, gave me a solid grip in the cold and rain or if I was sweating and provided reference points for a dead consistent grip.
