Who makes good Grips?

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

 

I have not been having any luck with Eagle grips.  I have had two sets break without over tensioning them and both times the guy gave me kind of a snarky attitude about it.  After my second attempt at gluing my current set I need to find someone who make something like a Gunfighter style grip.

 

Any suggestions and thanks!

What material are these grips?

My wife:wub: and I have used Eagle gunfighter grips on our Rugers for over 17yrs, with no issues at all.

Cut a 1/2" spacer from a bic pen body & install it around the screw between the grips .  I too have pulled out several sets of escutcheons on Eagle Altamont grips. They seem to drill the holes a little deep. This will fix the problem.

 

Edit: Correction to grip maker with my apologies to Eagle.

+1 for Altamont. I prefer their slim panel grips over Eagle gunfighters. They are about half the price of Eagle grips, but don’t let that fool you. They are every bit as good or better.

+ whatever the count it is....for Altamont.  I like the Rosewood checkered fleur-de-lis.  You can find them here.

Chalked me up as another happy Altamont customer and they are a much better price than Eagle grips.

I have some Altamont grips on my birdhead Rugers, they fit perfectly. 

Altamont sends us grips for Hell On Wheels every year, good company.

I just wish they’d make the slim grips for the Bisleys. I have 2 pair of their grips and they are really nice, I just like a thinner grip.

I bought a set of extended mesquite grips from Texas Grips. They are great.

Last I talked to them they would special order a set of slim panel grips for XR3-red frames. The special order was close to the eagle grips price.  So I decided not for my b/u pistols.  For that money I’ll swap grips if I need to swap pistols.  If they are interested in a group purchase and price is reasonable I may be interested to join in.

Altamont grips make a variety of very nice grips for a very good price.  I have a pair on my New Model Vaqueros.

Extended Texas grips

Have you ever had a chance to compare the feel of the Texas grips to the 1860 army grips ? Just wondering thicker/thinner . This makes the nvm more appealing to me I’ve always hated have my pinkie hang off the bottom of the grips

As shown in the bottom photo, Joe did a palm swell for me. Left hand grip. Makes a big difference for one hand shooting.
