anyone got hogue wood revolver grips?

Looking for grips for my 686, preferably no finger grooves. Hogue has some pretty looking ones, hows the fit? Anyone like/dislike and got experience?

I am with you. I HATE finger grooves BUT, I picked up this one pair on a lark for my 19 and really like them, much to my chagrin I shoot well with them.

General Firearms Forum



I am trying to find some non-finger grooves for my "N" frames right now. I don't really like the extra the Hogues add to the bottom of the grips and especially on a large frame, that and the finger grooves don't work for my on large revovlers. I am trying to find the old "Skeeter Skelton" type but the choices out there are few.

Here are two(2) of mine w/Hogue rosewood laminate grips;

General Firearms Forum

I like finger grooves on short-barreled magnums which tend to twist. roar and buck with full power loads. On heavier, 4-6" plain grips are fine..tend to stick with Pachmayr or Hogue rubber on those.

Hogue's online store is here;

Best.

I bought a pair of their LAMO CAMO conversion grips from Midway USA. They are like a combat grip with a finger groove, but are not really the mono grip style. They look good on the gun, and fit well. However they are not comfortable to me. I could tell that right away just after putting them on the gun.

These are the ones I got.

These are the ones I wished I would have bought.

Have you considered the Jerry Miculek grip? Brownells carries it for N, L and K frames.

I have several Smiths with Miculek grips on them. They feel good to me.

I'm OK with most factory L-frames and K-frames but the factory target or combat grips for the N-frame is too big for me to do good DA work with. The Miculek grip was a godsend to me.

I'm tempted to switch out the factory target grip on my M29-2 for a Miculek but I couldn't bring myself to change Dirty Harry's gun.

Wood Hogues look nice, but I prefer most factory wood grips.

I have a set of lamo camos on a S&W M65, they a
started out a FG grips but the grooves weren't spaced right for me and fell vistim to sandpaper. I stippled them and they are good now.

General Firearms Forum

I prefer the S&W FGC among all factory grips, with the old Ruger GP100 rubber/wood grips coming in next.

General Firearms Forum

If you are willing to spend a little bit more, I can recommend Nills.

General Firearms Forum

I like them, but also prefer without FG's.

I have the same grips on a mod 14-3, but tulipwood. I'll dig a pic out later.

They look nice but I'm not a fan of any wood grips on a revolver. I never found a set that fit me right and they tear my hands up.

I was hesitant to get a pair, but I did anyways and they feel great. Granted they have finger grooves obviously but they seem to fit me just fine. They fit the .454 SRH too but I'm gonna leave the squishy plastic Hogues on that beast.

I had those exact ones on a mod 28 S&W, they were absolutely perfect.
I gifted the gun to one of my best friends, but I DO miss it.

a 686 is such a high quality, classy gun, that it deserves it. I want my grandkids to teach their great grandkids with this thing

I so wish I would have bought those instead.
I was blinded by the others because they were the size I needed and on clearance.

I could tell right away the wouldn't work well for me. I still haven't shot the gun yet with them on it, and will do that before I make the decision to take them off an relegate them to the box of junk.

I had a pair of sb target grips on the gun. Fitted of course with a couple well placed wooden wedges I made so they would fit my round butt gun. I may have to go back to them.

Herrett's Stocks. They make the grips to your hand size. Enough said.

I found that Hogue wood grips do not work well with smaller hands. While I have no problem with them, there are better allround choices for wood grips. It has to be kept in mind that the round butt configuration allows for a smaller grip, also.

This seems to be a viable alternative but I am not sure if there is a U.S. importer for Klinsky.

Uh, whaaaat?

There is a horse shoe bracket included with the grip. you put that ove the bottom of the frame secure with the pin slip the grips on from the bottom and secure with the screw to the bracket.
