    I really enjoyed the last thread where everyone was telling about and posting pictures of their favorite gun. So..post your favorite aftermarket pistol/revolver grips, or rifle stocks if you wish.

    Pachmayr grippers, and Hogue finger groove grips are my favorites for shooting.

    Tyler's T grips are really a great combination of shootability and natural good looks of the wood:

    Always loved the feel of these oversized grips on my Ruger Vaquero Bisley:

    These "skip checkered" Mustang grips are good looking, IMHO:

    I like Hogue and Larry Davidson. Only two 'special' grips I own.

    I'd like a set of Esmerelda grips for something.

    Anything but rubber. :tongueout:
    Seriously though, right now on my J-Frame I'm rockin' the DeSantis Clip Grips and lovin' em' and I just got a nice set of Coco Bolo Double Daimond grips for my ATI 1911a1 Commander. Need to get a pic of both with the new grips. Maybe tomorrow.

    I love smooth grips. I prefer nice wood, but I also like my carbon fiber grips.

    Those are prior owned Mustang grips that I bought on ebay. I really don't know much about them, except the outfit was called Mustang that made them......Not even sure if the company is still in business.......

    Wood grips are, by far, my favorite.

    Back in the days, it was Lett Custom Grips for Ruger and M1911.

    Nowadays it's Esmeralda for M1911s, Berettas and Hi-Powers.

    Here are the Berettas & Hi-Powers:

    I like Spegel boot grips for my 642:

    It's been while since I've had a 1911, but I had a set of Herrett's D45 stocks on one of them. When I finally get around to getting another 1911 I'll probably get another set for it.

    This isn't my gun, but I think it gives you a good idea of what they look like:

    I love that style of half-smooth/half-checkered grips. I think Ahrends makes a similar design.

    My VZ10 grips on my CZ 85 Combat are the best that I have ever touched!
