10/7 Super Blackhawk

I had the new Hogue monogrip show up while I was away last week, couldn't wait to try it :-) The installation went smooth and the fit is great. This Hogue grip is gives you a bunch more to hold onto than the stock wood set up.
I tried several ammos today, six Cowboy Action 240gr SWC .44 Special to the brain with a two hand grip, four .44 Special to the brain with a one hand grip (those are the high misses). Ten Remington .44 Magnum 240gr SP to the heart, all good hits :-) Up next was 20 Herter's 240gr SP .44 Magnum 20 to the heart, not as tight as the Remington. That stuff was all at 7 yards. Lastly were 5 more of the Herter's to the gut at 15 yards.
I've resisted swapping the grips out for years because I liked the looks of the wood. Bottom line though is the rubber Hogue deal is WAY more comfortable :-)

All my .44 Mag and .357 Mag S&W revolvers wear Houge Monogrips.....much more comfy shooting full-power .44 loads than the factory grips.

The real beauty here, is we've got LOTS of choices!

Comfort is good; we tend to shoot handguns more if they're fun to shoot and not a painful experience.

Yes, the wooden grips were very harsh, so I put the Hogue grips onto this S&W Model 325 PD full moon clips. It is much more comfortable to shoot, especially, for many rounds at one time.

I love wood grips but rubber grips are very comfortable.
