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".
Hogue fancy hardwood grips are in a class of their own, and are acclaimed by many as the finest handgun stocks available. All Hogue hardwood grips are precision inlet on modern computerized machinery (CNC), then hand finished on actual factory frames, assuring a proper fit. Finally, they are hand polished to a non-slippery sheen using natural Carnauba wax which will not crack and peel like cheap, sprayed-on finishes.
Hogue wood grips are made from Goncalo Alves wood, among the hardest and most durable woods in the world. Hardwood revolver grips come standard with proportioned finger grooves, Hogue's famous orthopedic hand shape and of course all are fully relieved for speedloaders.
