View Full Version : To Hogue grip a SP101 or no?

Out at the range last week and thought I could use a little larger grip on the SP101. I looked at both the factory and the Hogue, but could not tell if there was a difference between the two in thickness.

The Hogue look good and I read many people like them more than the factory, but are they and thinker? Did you notice a better shooting experience with them over the factory.

I typically shoot full-house loads, if that helps, 125g or 180g.

Thank in advance!

PS. After shooting the SP101 and then a Glock 30, I now understand why people still call the Glock a brick grip. :tongueout: on them, it is still a great shooter.

I didn't like Hogues on mine, but then I like the factory grip.

I put Pachmayr's on mine.
I think they protect/pad my hand a lot more than the stock grips.

Very nice MinervaDoe and thanks! I am taking a look into those right now.

I've used stock, Pachmayr and Hogue. I just couldn't warm up to the stock grips, and I couldn't get a tight fit with the Pachmayr and couldn't use a speed loader (speed strips are ok). Mine's been wearing Hogues for a year or two and I'm happy with them.

I would highly recommend the hogue grips for your sp101. They feel perfect in your hand and increase control tremendously. The only reason I don't use them anymore is because I've upgraded to some crimson trace grips.

I recommend them.

About 2 years ago I purchased my SP101 from a friend and they came on the pistol. I wanted a more "pretty" grip so I went with Badgers. They cracked after the first 5 shots so I sent them back for a new pair with the same results. They are total junk. Hougue rubber grips are solid and simple. Not that pretty but they work.

We just put a set on my buddy's SP101 at the range this morning. I like the look of his stock grips with the wood inlays, but the Hogues really felt good IMO. He got them for $20, but he haggles on EVERYTHING.

I'm like FLslim.....couldn't get the Pachys to tighten up. I went to Hogues and don't have a problem. They sure make the SP easier to shoot with Magnum loads.
