fyi they have the hardwood grips without the finger grooves also both checkered and smooth), if you go to the Hogue website you can see them there. there is so much variation in color of the grips I ordered I am concerned what they will look like when they get here but I guess I have to take my chances.

I ordered some walnut grips from Hogue and when they arrived they were both different colors. I called them and they sent me a new pair that matched each other perfectly free of charge. They didn't even ask for the original set back.

Hahaha! Couldn't wait any longer for someone to do the "Paton" quote.

I went through the same thing with my stainless GP100. Bought custom wood inserts. Thought they would like nice. They didn't. Went back to the standard rosewood inserts. If you want something different that looks good, check out the options from Altamont, https://www.altamontco.com/pistol-grips/ruger/gp100. Altamont makes the OEM inserts for Ruger.

There's a ton of stuff going on in the other subforum in preparation for next week, but I am just circling back to close out this thread since I started it. new grips finally came yesterday after being backordered for about a month. LOVE them. Ya it took me 2 tries but I got there.

as a side note, ran a couple boxes thru this thing last weekend, never used fiber optic sights before but my old eyes love them. I am a convert. Not sure what others are out there but I put the Williams Fire Sights on this one and am very happy with them.

Pachmayr are also my preference on my wheel gun. Made a big difference in my shooting mostly because they help me keep the gun on target for faster follow up shots. They are so comfortable that even my daughter loves shooting the S&W Model 10 snubby with 124 gr, +P loads!
