Hogue designs and manufactures gear for shooters by shooters. Hogue has a full line of gear for every imaginable modern day firearm, as well as knives, slings, and accessories. I have been using Hogue grips for almost 25 years starting with Handall Universal Grip Sleeve, and now today their OverMold Grips and Stocks with great success and confidence. As Hogue states: Their gear is intended to help you "Get a grip".
When it comes to Semi-Automatic pistol grips, Hogue Grips are in a class by themselves. Many automatics have mechanisms that come very close to the grip, requiring proper clearances. Others depend on the grip to hold vital pins, and or springs, in place. Hogue's precision CNC woodworking equipment allows them to maintain these exacting tolerances that are especially important on automatics.
Covering a major portion of the handgun, the grip affects its appearance tremendously. A fancy wood grip will turn an ordinary gun into a unique custom firearm. Hogue automatic pistol stocks are used by many top pistol smiths for their exacting fit and attractiveness.
